WTA back in Båstad this summer
WTA tennis returns to Båstad 2019.
"It was a long process and I am very pleased that we are now in the port," says organizer Christer Hult at Goodtogreat.se
Organizer Christer Hult worked hard to bring the WTA back to Båstad.
After last year's competition, the message was that there will be no more Ericsson Open in Båstad. The economy of the women's tournament just did not go together.
But this summer, the event director also told Christer Hult about HD's WTA Tennis in Båstad:
"At best we have a contest here next year.
The tournament will be played a week before the men's ATP tournament, Swedish Open, which means during the second week of Wimbledon. This means that the best players are in the lead, and that Swedish players Rebecca Peterson and Johanna Larsson are also unavailable if they move to the third round.
The WTA tournament in Båstad will have $ 125,000 in the prize game and is included in the lowest category on the tour.
