Swing into Spring with the WTA

There are some great tournaments for fans of the WTA in both February and March. Lots of points and prize money are on the line as the top women trot across the globe to compete at events in Europe, the Middle East, and North America.

St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy: February 7th to February 13th

St. Petersburg has some star power on display this week with Maria Sakkari leading the field, followed by Anett Kontaveit. Other notable stars include Bencic, Kvitova, and Rybakina. Past winners on the entry list have included Kiki Bertens and Petra Kvitova.

Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships: February 14th to February 21st

The quick Middle East leg of spring has traditionally generated a lot of buzz and has counted with all the top players. Dubai has seen players like Muguruza, Halep, Bencic, and Svitolina lift this title. This year should be no different. In previous years Dubai has set the tone for the rest of the season. We get to see who is in truly good form and who is not.

Qatar Open February 20th to February 26th

Immediately following Dubai, the ladies of the WTA will head to the Qatar Open where there will be 1,000 points on the line. Petra Kvitova has won two out of the last four editions and will be looking to defend her title. The player list is not out yet, but we can count on most of the top players showing up due to the high profile and points and prize money awarded. It is one of the richest tournaments on tour with prize money awarded at approximately $2,300,000.

Indian Wells and the Miami Open March 9th to April 3rd

These two tournaments will again dominate March for the WTA tour, with 2,000 points up for grabs for the winner. Between the 500 points awarded at the St. Petersburg Trophy and Dubai, and then the 1,000 at Qatar, the WTA swing of February and March is a tad richer than the men with up to 4,000 points up for grabs for the winner!
