ATX Open History and Previous Winners
ATX Open History
In light of the many events getting canceled due to current happenings in the world like Russia’s invasion of Ukraine or Covid-19, many empty fixtures were created on the tour. In an attempt to fill some of these vacancies, new tournaments like the Merida Open in Mexico and the ATX Open in Austin, Texas, USA were created. This is the 1st time a world-class tennis event will be held in Austin but there was a now-defunct WTA tournament held in the state.
Called the Texas Tennis Open, this event was held for only 2 editions in 2012 and 2013 before being cut from the Tour due to economic reasons. The Texas Tennis Open was played in Grapevine near Dallas, Texas, and had players like former doubles no. 1 Roberta Vinci and singles no. 1 Jelena Jankovic playing at the inaugural edition. This means that the ATX Open is also the return of the WTA Tour to Texas after 11 years.
