The Korea Open was established in 2004 and looks set to remain a recurring feature on the WTA calendar. The event has been well supported and is being pushed to become one of the most important tournaments on the schedule.
“The tournament is being promoted with a prize money increase and a title change,” announced Tournament Director Lee Jin-Soo ahead of the 2012 competition. The name has been changed from the Hansol Korea Open, to simply the Korea Open, and prize money has been raised to $500,000 overall.
“This is the stepping stone to going from an International-level tournament to Premier-level,” continued Jin-Soo. “We plan to make it the No.1 international sports event in Korea.”
With this kind of backing it looks like we can expect some exciting tournaments here in years to come. The facilities at the Seoul Olympic Park Tennis Center are ideal for this event, which should work in favour of the bid to upgrade the tournament.
The Korea Open is already developing an interesting history. Past winners here include Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams and Kimiko Date-Krumm. Date-Krumm’s success was particularly outstanding given that she was only one day away from her 39th birthday when she won the title, making her the second-oldest Open Era WTA title winner of all time, just behind Billie Jean King.
