The Hologic WTA Tour released its 2023 tournament calendar on Tuesday, which officially includes the Feb. 27-March 5 ATX Open as part of the upcoming season.
“We have been working hard to prepare for our tournament to take place in week nine of the season, but now seeing the ATX Open formally on the WTA calendar alongside all the other great events around the world makes it feel even more official,” said Tournament Director Christo Van Rensburg.
The ATX Open will be the first WTA tournament to be held in the United States during the 2023 season. The initial calendar released Tuesday, which includes events through the US Open, features four standalone WTA tournaments in the U.S. The ATX Open is one of only 11 WTA 250 hard court tournaments on the calendar.
Danielle Collins, who ended 2022 with a career high year-end ranking of No. 14, is the first player to commit to play the ATX Open. Collins, a two-time NCAA champion at the University of Virginia, reached the 2022 Australian Open final. A Florida native who broke into the Top 10 during this past season, Collins owns a pair of WTA titles in her career.
The ATX Open, with a 32-player singles field and 16-team doubles draw, will take place at Westwood Country Club. A rendering of the stadium that will be the tournament’s main court was released last month.
