After 18,000 fans enjoyed Austin’s first Women’s Tennis Association tournament earlier this year, the ATX Open returns next February for more professional tennis in Austin.

The 32-player field already has three big names pledged to join the festivities. Sloane Stephens and Danielle Collins headlined last year’s slate, and Victoria Azarenka will play in Austin for the first time next year.

Stephens is best known for taking home the trophy at the 2017 U.S. Open, one of her seven titles. At last year’s tournament, Stephens, who made the quarterfinals in both singles and doubles, was given the 2023 Women’s Catalyst Award for her work with the Sloane Stephens Foundation.

Collins was a semifinalist at this year’s ATX Open as well as in San Diego later in the year. Her pinnacle thus far has been playing in the final at the 2022 Australian Open, which helped her reach a career high ranking of No. 7.

With 21 titles, Azarenka is easily the most decorated player thus far set to play the tournament. The two-time Australian Open champion has spent 51 weeks as the world’s No. 1 ranked player in her career. Her 2023 has been amazing, reaching the Australian Open semifinals and finishing in the Top 20 for the first time since giving birth to her son, Leo, in 2016.

While fans wait for more players to be added to the draw, one more will definitely be set next month. The winner of the DropShot Tournament Series H-E-B Women’s Pro Tennis Open will be awarded a wildcard slot at the ATX Open. Last year, Longhorn legend Peyton Stearns won the event and eventually made it all the way to the quarterfinals of the ATX Open. This year’s tournament will be held November 13-19 at the Texas Tennis Center.

The 2023 ATX Open saw the singles title captured by Marta Kostyuk, with doubles being taken by Erin Routliffe and Aldila Sutjiadi. The 2024 edition will be held once again at Westwood Country Club beginning February 24. Ticket information and more are available at
