Wooster Square Waits, Wicked Wonderful Women's World Class Tennis - 2016 Connecticut Open Preview!

2016 Connecticut Open 

Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale 

August 19-27

Ah, August in New Haven Connecticut, 
the New "San Diego" of the East.

And the whole tennis world turns to New Haven,
one week before the US Open in a little town 60 miles south of here called New York.


Shut the front door!

Because, right here in New Haven we 
have World Class Women's Tennis,
The Connecticut Open.

Three Time and Defending Champion,Petra Kvitiva, has a chance
to tie for all time New Haven Championships
with one more win. Ms. Kvitiva ties
Venus Williams and Miss New Haven herself,
Caroline Wozniaki with 4 titles.

In a recent interview with the CT Open, Ms. Kvitiva said that she feels very comfortable in New Haven.

And when she's comfortable?

Keep your eyes on the ball for some
serious, sensational super sweet tennis!

3 Time and defending Champion,
Petra Kvitiva measures up a hot return!

So what about the rest of the players draw?

Well let's say it's deeper than anything you will
hear at a Presidential Convention!

Connecticut Open Website, quote:

 "The draw will feature Grand Slam Champions Svetlana Kuznetsova (2009 Roland Garros, 2004 US Open) and Petra Kvitova (2012, 2014 Wimbledon), former World No. 1 players Jelena Jankovic and Wozniacki, and numerous players who have won titles this year – World No. 8 Roberta Vinci, World No. 11 Madison Keys, World No. 12 Dominika Cibulkova, World No. 16 Karolina Pliskova, World No. 17 Timea Bacsinszky, World No. 20 Elina Svitolina, World No. 21 Sara Errani, World No. 23 Sloane Stephens (three titles), and World No. 26 Kiki Bertens.

In addition a trio of up and coming players to watch this year in New Haven are World No. 15 Belinda Bencic, the Swiss star won two tournaments last year and reached the final of St. Petersburg in 2016; World No. 18 Johanna Konta, the British player advanced to this year’s Australian Open semifinals, and World No. 29 Daria Kasatkina, the Russian who was a quarterfinalist at Indian Wells and Charleston in 2016.

Rounding out the field are 2016 Wimbledon semifinalist Elena Vesnina as well as, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Barbora Strycova, Ekaterina Makarova, and Irina-Camelia Begu."

athletes perform.
