Who Knew? World Class Tennis in New Haven for 20 Years and Counting!

2018 Sneak Peek!

Anyway you look at it, 
20 years is a long time run.

Aussie Daria Gavrilova
2017 Connecticut Open Champion

Once a year for a little more than a week in August
(this year is August 17 to the 25th)
Professional Tennis comes to
New Haven at the Yale Tennis Center.

If you are in the dark,
let me help you see the light.

Last year's solar eclipse from the Court.
Before the eclipse!

If you think this is some snooty, snobby
sublime sport then you are 
suspiciously superfluous!

World Class Tennis upFront and Personal!

The Connecticut Open Tennis is all about fun in the New Haven sun!

Monday Night Opening Ceremonies.

Want action?

Try 4 out of the top ten
Women's Players in the World!

Were talking the best of the best!
Even the Bestest!

Including reigning World #1,
former Connecticut Open Champion,
and current French Open Champion
Simona Halep.

2013 New Haven Open Champion

One of the exciting features of the
Connecticut Open is that it is one week ahead of another tournament 60 miles down the road, the US Open.

You've got players on a streak, players fine tuning their game and others just trying to move up the ladder.

Genie Bouchard, pride of Canada last year.

Once again, the 
Wooster Square Blossom Blog 
has been granted inside access;
being the World's First (and only)
Photoblogumentary has its perks!

Besides being courtside everyday and night, I'll be tweeting live! I'll be meeting with the players, taking photos
and letting you know what is happening
at the Connecticut Tennis Center!

I know that some of you might be a little skeptical. Don't be. 
Take the plunge.

New Haven is Home to Champions

There are food trucks, kids day, Beer Festival on Finals Day, 
and of course the Tennis!

Christina McHale leaps for a point

This Friday and Saturday will be the
the Qualifying rounds.

This is a great time to get up close to the players on the outside courts.
