WTA Lausanne tournament schedule

WTA Lausanne players 2019

A great field has assembled in the Swiss city of Lausanne on the shores of Lake Geneva for the latest edition of the Swiss Open.

Despite Wimbledon just finishing up on the weekend, some leading WTA stars have decided to switch briefly back to clay before heading over to North America for the summer hardcourt season.

Alize Cornet is the defending champion having claimed the title in Gstaad - where the tournament used to be held - last year, with the Frenchwoman joined in the draw by former top 10 stars Julia Goerges and Caroline Garcia, both of whom demonstrated great form in the lead-in tournaments on grass before crashing out early at Wimbledon.

Mihaela Buzarnescu, Tatjana Maria, Daria Gavrilova and Eugenie Bouchard are among the other seeds, while there’s immense clay experience amongst the unseeded players, including former French Open runner-up Sam Stosur and former Roland Garros semi-finalist (and Swiss star) Timea Bacsinszky.

About WTA Lausanne

Starting just a couple of days after Wimbledon finishes, the Ladies Open in Lausanne is one of the final stops on European clay for the year, offering clay courters one last opportunity to rack up valuable ranking points and perhaps win a WTA title before embarking on the American summer hardcourt swing throughout August and September.

The Ladies Open has been played at a number of different locations throughout it’s near 50-year history, beginning in Gstaad from 1969 to 1978 before moving over to Lugano between 1981 and 1986. The event would then cross to Geneva for five years and then Lucerne for three seasons until 1994, when the tournament was scrapped.

Gstaad would play host to the WTA International tournament once more after it returned to the WTA calendar through 2016-18, but the tournament has switched again from 2019, with Lausanne now playing host for the foreseeable future.

Chris Evert and Manuela Maleeva-Fragniere own the record for the most tournament victories with three apiece, with Lindsay Davenport, Francoise Durr and Barbara Paulus each winning twice. Homegrown star Viktoria Golubic became just the second woman from Switzerland to win the Gstaad title when the tournament returned, conquering Kiki Bertens in three sets in the final.

However, the Dutchwoman wasn’t to be denied a second time as Bertens returned in 2017 and powered her way to the title, defeating Anett Kontaveit in three sets to claim the silverware. Alize Cornet is the defending champion, having defeated Mandy Minella in straight sets in the 2018 final.
