Women’s Professional Tennis Tournament to be Held at Westwood Country Club to Host Feb. 27-March 5; WTA Finals in Fort Worth Next Week Marks Tour’s Return to Texas
AUSTIN, Texas — With the first serve of the inaugural ATX Open set to take place in four months, event organizers with the DropShot Tournament Series today unveiled a rendering of the 1,500-seat stadium that will host the WTA 250 tournament that will be held Feb. 27-March 5 at Westwood Country Club.
The ATX Open will be the first Hologic WTA Tour tournament held in the United States during the season. The rendering’s reveal comes as the Tour prepares to close its 2022 campaign in Texas next week with the WTA Finals at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth.
“After nearly a decade without top-level professional women’s tennis in our state, it is wonderful to have the WTA Tour returning to Texas twice in four months,” said Christo Van Rensburg, DropShot Series Tournament Director. “We are thrilled to be able to show how Westwood Country Club will become one of only 50 venues in the world to host a WTA Tour tournament.”
“As exciting as it is to see the action in this rendering, I cannot begin to describe how much we are looking forward to welcoming players and fans alike to Austin in February and the first WTA event in the United States in the new season,” added Van Rensburg.
The ATX Open will feature top players from across the United States and around the world. As a WTA 250, it will feature a 32-player singles draw as well as a 16-team doubles field.
The first player to commit to playing the ATX Open is American Danielle Collins, the 2022 Australian Open finalist. The 28-year-old Floridian owns a pair of WTA singles titles and will finish the 2022 season with a career high ranking of No. 14 after breaking into the Top 10 for the first time earlier in the season. She was a two-time NCAA Tournament champion while playing at the University of Virginia.
While the ATX Open will kick off the 2023 US swing, the Tour’s 2022 season is ending in Fort Worth with the top eight singles players and doubles teams competing in a round robin tournament Oct. 31-Nov. 7 at Dickies Arena. That will be the WTA’s first event in Texas since the 2012 season.
