Vogue Athens Open 2009 Women's Tennis Tournament
The ITF Women's Circuit will be held for a second year running in Athens. This time it will take place at the Olympic Stadium Tennis Courts from 26 September to 4 October, when women tennis players from all over the world will compete in the Vogue Athens Open 2009 tournament on the state-of-the-art tennis courts in Athens.
The tournament, staged by Liberis Publications and the Hellenic Tennis Federation, is the most important tennis event women tennis players have ever seen in Greece and it holds great importance in Greek athletic events overall.
The entries of athletes in the ITF $100,000 "Vogue Athens Open 2009" professional tennis tournament were clearly above expectations.
The ITF list showcases 20 top-100 athletes. The tournament has an excellent reputation among players, evidenced by the fact that 21 of the 22 players accepted in the Main Draw declared the Vogue Athens Open 2009 as their first priority among all the tournaments of this particular week. At the same time, 24 of the 26 players accepted for the Qualifying Draw set Vogue Athens Open 2009 as their first priority.
Athens will be hosting some of the most important stars of women's tennis at the Olympic Stadium. The brightest among them certainly is Jelena Dokic, the Australian who in 2002 reached No. 4 in the World Rankings and has finished two seasons in the top-10. Only 26 years of age, she has already been playing professionally for 11 years and chalked up career earnings that exceed $4,000,000.
Last year's winner, Lourdes Dominguez Lino from Spain, will attempt to defend her Vogue Athens Open 2008 title, which was her 13th title in ITF tournaments. She also has 22 more titles in doubles and three titles in WTA tournaments.
The tournament will begin on 26 September with the qualifying matches and will conclude on 4 October with the finals. It should be noted that the matches will continue under the floodlights.
