The BBVA Open Internacional de Valencia begins its third edition at the Sporting Club de Tenis, where it will welcome some of the best players on the WTA circuit after their time at Roland Garros.
Up to eleven of these players are already in the Top 100 ranking, making them candidates for the title that will be played in the capital of the Turia among the most outstanding players in the world.
The headliner, Sara Sorribes, will be one of the most important rises, going from 155 to 82 after missing out on the quarterfinals in the Paris tournament.
Alongside her, Top50 player Mayar Sherif is emerging as one of the favorites in the main draw, where she will be joined by Roland Garros finalist Sara Errani, Katerina Bandl, Emma Navarro, Julia Grabher, Panna Udvardy, Nadia Podoroska, Carolina Dolehide, Elina Avanesian and Clara Tauson.
These names will also become the references of the champions of the future, where once again the best players of the Comunitat Valenciana will compete in the U14 tournament. As a result of this, Charo Esquiva, Spanish Junior Champion, winner of the ITF Junior of Valencia and the only Spanish player classified for Roland Garros Junior in 2023 at the age of 15, has been granted a wild card.
The BBVA Open Internacional de Valencia will be one of the most outstanding events at national level on the courts, but also with the numerous activities that will take place outside them.
Three clinics, two in reference clubs in the region and one on the 11th at the Sporting Club de Tenis facilities, will open a series of initiatives which will highlight the Women’s Day dedicated to highlighting the role of businesswomen in society, a Blind Tennis exhibition or the Sustainability Day, which will explain how the tournament completely offsets its carbon footprint.
