USTA Pro Circuit Event to Feature International Field of Touring Professionals
RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. – (December 16, 2019) – The 2020 Shoebacca Women’s Open tennis tournament, proudly celebrating its 10th Anniversary, will be played Monday, February 24 through Saturday, February 29 at Morgan Run Club & Resort, 5690 Cancha de Golf, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92091.
The $25,000 United States Tennis Association Pro Circuit event will showcase young rising Americans among an international field of touring professionals. The tournament will feature top local players as well. Admission for spectators and on-site parking will be free each day.
“This tournament is a very important stop for the players on the USTA Pro Circuit. Many of the competitors will have played in Australia in January and are coming to Rancho Santa Fe to prepare for Women’s Tennis Association events in Indian Wells and Miami,” said Tournament Director Sue Whiteside.
“Morgan Run Club & Resort is an incredible venue to watch the only women’s professional tennis tournament in San Diego and we want fans to come and enjoy the event all week,” Whiteside added. “Spectators are going to have a great opportunity to watch these talented players and perhaps a future Grand Slam champion.”
Past tournament competitors include American stars Madison Keys, Sofia Kenin, Danielle Rose Collins, CiCi Bellis, defending singles champion Nicole Gibbs, and current Rancho Santa Fe resident CoCo Vandeweghe. Canada’s Bianca Andreescu, the reigning US Open champion, won the tournament singles title in Rancho Santa Fe in 2017.
Qualifying matches begin on Monday, February 24 with Main Draw Singles and Doubles matches beginning Tuesday, February 25. The tournament concludes Saturday, February 29 with the Women’s Singles and Doubles Championships.
