WTA Dallas will provide crucial preparation for some of the world's leading players ahead of the US Open and once again you can watch the Texas Tennis Open live for free online.
Top German duo Angelique Kerber and Sabine Lisicki head the Dallas field along with Jelena Jankovic and French Open quarter-finalist Yaroslava Shvedova.
In total, there will be 11 players in the draw ranked inside the world's top 50. “We are extremely pleased to add Jelena Jankovic to our already outstanding player field this early in the commitment process,” tournament director Chris Giordano said earlier this year. “Jelena is a phenomenal player, with a fantastic history on the WTA Tour. Her addition to our event, along with the other players already committed including last year’s champion Sabine Lisicki, will provide an outstanding opportunity for tennis fans to experience world-class professional tennis in North Texas.”
Shvedova could be the main threat to Kerber and Lisicki. The big hitting Kazakhstani has been returning from injury this year and she was hugely impressive at the French Open and Wimbledon.
At the All England Club she recorded just the second ever Golden Set in tennis history, winning all 24 points of the first set of her third round match against French Open finalist Sara Errani.
