The history of the PTT Pattaya Tennis Open
2013 PTT Pattaya Open – where “Strong is Beautiful”comes to life
In 2013, the PTT Pattaya Open, WTA professional women’s tennis tournament has moved forward one week to follow directly on from the Australian Open. Scheduled for 27 January – 3 February 2013 at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Pattaya, an exciting line-up of stars matching the WTA slogan “Strong is Beautiful” has been put into place for the 22 nd edition of the tournament, which is one of the longest running events on the WTA Tour and is tremendously popular with the players and spectators alike.
The PTT Pattaya Open remains unique on the professional women’s tennis tour, in that it is played in a 5-star hotel with a beachside location, where the tennis courts almost touch the sea. On a windy day, you can feel the sea spray on your face and hear the sound of the waves hitting the sand on the beach below.
Throughout its 21 years of existence, the PTT Pattaya Open has always been a popular tournament with the players and has seen many famous names grace the courts at the Dusit Thani, such as Anna Kournikova, Martina Hingis, Conchita Martinez and more recently Caroline Wozniacki, Vera Zvonareva, Ana Ivanovic and Daniela Hantuchova. In 2010, the PTT Pattaya Open was voted the international series “Tournament of the Year” by the players of the WTA Tour, beating 32 other tournaments from Asia, Australasia, Europe and the Americas.
The compact stadium was expanded in 2011 to seat a little over 2,500 spectators on finals weekend, this capacity increase was needed as the number of spectators in 2011 and again in 2012 has increased year on year. There has also a surge in print and electronic media coverage and “live” TV broadcasts, not just in Thailand, but in Asia, Europe and the Americas as well.
