Who won last year?

Ukrainian Marta Kotyuk — currently ranked No. 30 in singles — defeated France’s Varvara Gracheva in the final singles match of the tournament to win the first ever ATX Open. In doubles, New Zealand’s Erin Routliffe and Indonesia’s Aldila Sutjiadi took home the gold.

The players had quite the crowd to entertain, as the tournament drew nearly 18,000 fans. This year, the tournament will feature expanded seating and hospitality offerings, a new Owner’s Club, and new opening weekend fan activities.
