Winston-Salem wants to add WTA in 2020

With the departure of the New Haven event to Asia, the USTA and the WTA have been looking at options to fill the week before the US Open.

They have taken what was planned as a $100,000 ITF event in the Bronx, and expanded it to the WTA International level this year.


But another suggestion has come from the ATP Tour event in Winston-Salem, NC.

Tennis.Life has learned that it wants to add a WTA event to its current ATP Tour 250 stop for 2020.

The site has five match courts and six practice courts, and would expand its player areas.
