Ricoh Open tournament schedule




Who is playing WTA s-Hertogenbosch


Live from ‘s-Hertogenbosch from Monday 6 June, the Ricoh Open brings together some of the WTA Tour’s finest stars as they begin their grass-court seasons on the grass of Rosmalen, held in the very first week of the grass-court season.

With just three weeks between the end of the French Open and the beginning of the third Grand Slam of the year at Wimbledon, the challenge facing every player on the WTA Tour is how to make the transition from slow, sticky, high-bouncing clay to fast, slippery, low-bouncing grass – probably the most extreme shift of surfaces required throughout the entire year.

Top 10 star Dominika Cibulkova lines up as the top seed in s-Hertogenbosch this season, and the Slovakian will be hoping to kick-start her 2017 campaign after a challenging first half of the year.

The inform Kristina Mladenovic, coming off a quarter-final at Roland Garros, will be looking to continue her stellar form and go one step further at the Ricoh Open after last year’s runner-up finish to CoCo Vandeweghe, who also returns in 2017 to defend her title.

Camila Giorgi, who has slipped all the way down to No. 93 in the world, is the only other defending champion in the 2017 Ricoh Open field, while other players to watch include Kiki Bertens, Ana Konjuh, Timea Babos, Lesia Tsurenko and Kristyna Pliskova, along with young guns Anett Kontaveit, Elise Mertens and former World No. 1 Jelena Jankovic.

About the Ricoh Open


Rosmalen has hosted a tennis tournament since 1989, when an eight-player test event was held before the event became officially part of the ATP World Tour in 1990 and was then the only grass-court tournament to be played on the European mainland.

The WTA Tour joined the ‘s-Hertogenbosch party in 1996 when women’s singles and doubles were played for the first time, with Belgium’s Anke Huber claiming the inaugural title. Known by the names of various sponsors over the years, including the Heineken Trophy, Ordina Open, UNICEF Open and Topshelf Open, WTA ‘s-Hertogenbosch became the Ricoh Open in 2016.

Many big stars have seized their chance to shine in ‘s-Hertogenbosch over the years, including Martina Hingis (2000), Justine Henin (2001 and 2010), Kim Clijsters (2003) and Mary Pierce (2004). Home favourite Michaela Krajicek thrilled the crowd when she captured the title in 2006, defeating future world no. 1 Dinara Safina in the final – and then recorded another milestone in ‘s-Hertogenbosch when ATP doubles player Martin Emmrich proposed to her on court during the 2014 tournament.

One of five WTA Tour events played on grass, WTA ‘s-Hertogenbosch was originally played the week before Wimbledon but with the expanded grass-court season in 2015, the calendar was reshuffled to allow three weeks of grass-court tennis between the French Open and Wimbledon. The Ricoh Open now follows the French Open immediately on the calendar, but its role as a crucial preparatory event for Wimbledon has not changed.

In recent years, several WTA Tour stars have claimed the title in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, including 2015 US Open runner-up Roberta Vinci in 2011, 2014 French Open runner-up Simona Halep in 2013 and big-hitting Coco Vandeweghe, who would go on to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals, in 2014. Hard-hitting Italian Camila Giorgi would claim her first grass-court title in 2015, beating Belinda Bencic in the final.

CoCo Vandeweghe, a semi-finalist at the Australian Open earlier in 2017, is the defending champion having defeated Kristina Mladenovic 7-5 7-5 in the 2016 final.
