Prague will host a new women’s tennis tournament that can accommodate up to 2,000 spectators a day from August 10 to 15, organizers said on Sunday.

The Prague Open, one of the first tournaments on the WTA circuit to be held after the epidemic, will be played on the clay of the Sparta Prague club, with an endowment of 200,000 euros.

We are already in talks with the best Czech players, we will prepare mobile grandstands with a capacity of 2,000 seats“said tournament director David Trunda.

The best current Czech players are Karolina Pliskova (WTA 3) and Petra Kvitova (WTA 12), crowned twice at Wimbledon. Kvitova won a Czech tournament in May, played behind closed doors at Sparta, at a time when her country was already easing measures against the spread of the virus.

Tournament spokesperson Karel Tejkal said the event would not be a postponed version of the May Prague Open, which did not take place due to the pandemic. “It’s a new tournament that … is now part of the WTA’s provisional calendar for this year“, he added.
