A unique event that is sponsored by the leading automobile manufacturer BMW Of Naples and one of the biggest tennis manufacturer of the world Head Tennis. A new era of players has risen, players that have the hunger to become the new Gauff or the next Swiatek. With a draw of 32 in the qualifiers starting Monday 8th, only 6 athletes can advance to the 32 women’s main draw to compete for the championship with the Finals being played on Sunday 14th.
We are bringing 58 players to Naples, 58 athletes whose careers are on the rise for greatness. Who knows maybe one of them is next year’s Ons Jabeur, who entered the season having never advanced past the quarterfinals at a major and ended the year as the world No. 2. Or Emma Raducanu who started as a wildcard player in Wimbledon last year ranked at 338 in the WTA rankings and she ended the season in the top 20 after her remarkable US Open triumph in September. Like this, many other stories of amazing upsets that we see each day in women’s tennis. So who knows maybe you are watching this following week what will be the next top #10 athlete in the WTA.
If we go back in time when women’s tennis was created in 1873 and when it played a role in the Olympics of 1900, women’s tennis has become a huge movement to what we know of the sport today. Today you google Women’s Tennis and it shows you all the live scores, the articles about the best moments in tennis, the grand slam champions, among much other information that tennis fans are looking for. They even made a Netflix show about the upcoming champions in both women’s and men’s which will have a new season coming up. Even price money has turned into the same amount for both genres in the US Open.
As for women in sports, all the female tennis players have become one of the greatest entertainments, with amazing athletes thriving for success.
In our academy we love to support this movement, we are all in for women showing their game, giving us a great match, and performing at their highest level. We want to be an example of a strong community, with the ES women athletes we want to give them as many opportunities as we can to let them win the spotlight in anything they do in life. For that reason we want to give this great opportunity, to encourage those players who are doing the step to higher rankings and continue with their careers to become the next number 1.
We are inviting you all to come watch this amazing tournament, and cheer for those athletes who are becoming an important figure in the tennis world.
