Guadalajara Open History and Previous Winners
The Guadalajara Open tournament was organized for the first time in 2021. The tournament was added to the WTA calendar after the suspension of the tournaments in China due to the Peng Shuai sexual assault and disappearance controversy and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The tournament is played on hard surface at the Panamerican Tennis Center. Despite the short history and the uncertainty of it’s future, Guadalajara Open already is in the 1000 series which makes it attractive for the top players on the tour.
The inaugural tournament was actually the 2021 WTA Finals, that should have taken place in Shenzen, China but was moved to Mexico, which was the first time this country to host such a big tennis event. Garbine Muguruza won the inaugural tournament in 2021 defeating Anett Kontaveit 6-3, 7-5 in the final.
In the doubles final, the Czech double Barbora Krejcikova / Katerina Sinaikova defeated Hsieh su-Wei and Elise Mertens 6-3, 6-4 in the finals.
Last year, Jessica Pegula won the title defeating Maria Sakkari in the final 6-2, 6-3. In the doubles competition, Storm Sanders and Luisa Stefani defeated Anna Danilina and Beatriz Haddad Maia 7-6, 6-7, 10-8.
