The Sony Swedish Open will return in 2013 for another week of top quality tennis, and all of the biggest matches will be watchable via bet365’s live streaming (click on the link above for more information). The competition has been one of Scandinavia’s most prominent sporting events ever since its inaugural year in 2009.
Although the tournament runs simultaneously with the US Open hardcourt swing, we’ve seen some great matches here and some talented players, including former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki. The competition remains particularly popular with players who are at home on clay.
2012’s event was a memorable one, with Mathilde Johansson and Polona Hercog making the final despite being unseeded. It had looked like the home nation would have plenty to cheer about but Hercog pulled off a superb comeback to claim a 0-6, 6-4, 7-5 victory.
