When is the WTA Prague Open 2020?

The 2020 WTA Prague Open will be played from 10-16 August, and will be just the second WTA Tour event played since the first week of March.

WTA tennis has been suspended for the best part of five months, so top players are keen to get back to action and the entry list for the Prague Open is led by top-10 players Simona Halep and Belinda Bencic.

Qualifying for the Prague Open will be played 8-10 August, with main-draw women’s matches beginning on 10 August.

WTA Prague Open Players 2020

After a lengthy layoff, and with the French Open coming up fast, the WTA’s top players are eager to get back to action, as evidenced by the very strong field for the Prague Open.

Many of those who have signed up to play the Palermo Ladies Open the previous week will also be competing in Prague, led by world no. 2 Simona Halep.

The full entry list has not officially been made available but the players below are reliably expected to appear, and Halep and Bouchard have been officially confirmed.

Simona Halep

Romania’s Halep has won seven clay-court titles in her career including some of the biggest in the sport – Madrid (twice) and, of course, the French Open in 2018, her maiden major title. So it’s no surprise that the world no. 2 is prioritising clay-court tennis when it comes to her August schedule, signing up for the Palermo Ladies Open and now the Prague Open the following week.

The reigning Wimbledon champion has never played in Prague, and will be hoping to bring the strong form that saw her make a 10-2 start to the season, winning the Doha Open and reaching the semifinals of the Australian Open.

Belinda Bencic

Switzerland’s Bencic is expected to make her return from the hiatus at the Prague Open. The world no. 8 has already reached quarterfinals in Adelaide, St Petersburg and Doha in 2020.

A teenage phenom whose career looked like it might be derailed by back and foot injuries, Bencic started 2019 outside the top 50 and ended it inside the top 10, winning titles in Moscow and Dubai and reaching the semifinals of the US Open, Indian Wells and the WTA Finals Shenzhen.

Eugenie Bouchard

A former Wimbledon finalist joins the reigning Wimbledon champion in the Prague Open field with a wildcard granted to Canada’s Bouchard.

Once ranked as high as world no. 5, Bouchard finished runner-up to Petra Kvitova at Wimbledon in 2014 but struggles with injury and for form have seen her drop outside the top 300. Nevertheless, the Canadian will be a popular addition to the Prague Open field.

Marketa Vondrousova

The Czech Republic has become an exceptional force in women’s tennis, winning the Fed Cup seven of nine years between 2011 and 2018, and Marketa Vondrousova is the latest top player to come out of its rich tennis tradition.

The 21-year-old was the first teenager in a decade to reach a Grand Slam final when she finished runner-up to Ashleigh Barty at the French Open in 2019, and won the $80k in Prague in 2017, as well as reaching two WTA Tour clay-court finals in 2019.

About the Prague Open

The Czech Republic has become a huge force in women’s tennis, with Petra Kvitova, Karolina Pliskova, Lucie Safarova and Marketa Vondrousova among the Grand Slam champions and finalists it has produced over the last couple of decades. Backed up by the likes of Barbora Strycova, the Czechs have won the Fed Cup seven times between 2011 and 2018, underlining their extraordinary strength in depth.

So it’s only fitting that the Prague Open, an ITF tournament between 2010 and 2014, was upgraded to a WTA Tour International tournament from 2015 and continues to be a popular part of the European clay-court tournament.

Uusally played in early May before the big back-to-back tournaments in Madrid and Rome, the Prague Open has been moved to August in 2020, and will be the second WTA Tour event to be played since top-level tennis was suspended in early March due to the global health crisis.

The Prague Open, usually known as the J&T Banka Prague Open, is played at the TK Sparta Praha, a tennis club founded in 1905 (which makes it the third oldest in the Czech Republic). As an International-level event, it offers 280 ranking points to the winner.

Five of the champions of the Prague Open so far have been Czech players. Lucie Hradecka (2010) and Lucie Safarova (2012-13) won it while it was still an ITF event, and Safarova would go on to win it as a WTA Tour event in 2016, the year after she reached the final of the French Open.

Karolina Pliskova, the first woman from the Czech Republic to be ranked world no. 1, won the Prague Open in 2015. But the most emotional victory undoubtedly belonged to two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, who won the title in 2018 – around 18 months after a knife attack during a robbery at her home left her with career-threatening injuries to her hand.

Only once in nine years has the final of the Prague Open not featured a Czech player. Karolina Muchova, who went on to make a storming run to the Wimbledon quarterfinals that summer, finished runner-up to Jil Teichmann of Switzerland at the 2019 Prague Open.
