Texas Tennis Open

The Texas Tennis Open was a professional tennis tournament for women. After some contradictory statements,[1] the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) made it a late addition to the 2011 WTA Tour. It was played at the Hilton Lakes Tennis & Sports Club[2] in Grapevine (near Dallas), Texas in the USA. It was an International level event in August during the same week (the week before the US Open) as the New Haven Open at Yale.[3] In 2013, the event was cancelled from the WTA calendar due to economic reasons.[4]
