WTA has officially announced what the tournament schedule will be for the first eight months of the 2023 calendar starting in January. Also this season there are several novelties developed by the federation with the suppression of some tournaments to the detriment of others that have been born.
As for the second part of the calendar, that is, starting in September, we will have to wait a little longer. In January, in the first month of the year, we will find the first great novelty of the season: the United Cup. This tournament will replace the ATP Cup and will be a mixed competition that will help athletes start programming in the best way possible.
After the stoppage due to the pandemic, Auckland and Hobart are back in style. After the first slam of the season, the 250 tournaments will be held in Huan Hin and another in Lyon.
Between changes and news in the new WTA calendar
February will also be a month of changes: the Linz 250 will be moved to the second month of the calendar, while this year there will be no tournament in St.
Petersburg due to the war between Russia and Ukraine. If March and April do not have appreciable changes compared to 2022, there is little to say even in May, although after the Italian Internationals there will be an opportunity to play the participation tournaments in Strasbourg and Rebat to get the best out of Roland Garros.
In the first summer month of the year, that is, June, we will play on grass again and there will be six possible tournaments that you can participate in, including Hertogenbosch, Nottingham, Berlin, Birmingham. The climax will come in July with the third Slam of the season, or Wimbledon.
The major will begin on July 3 and will last until the 16th. In August the WTA Washington will no longer be held, while the two 1000s in Montreal and Cincinnati will be confirmed. These two tournaments will also be preparation for the US Open that will begin on August 28 until September 10.
In 2023 the tennis players will try to hunt down the world number one Iga Swiatek who has widely dominated this season, leaving her opponents little or more. The women’s season ended last week with the WTA Finals which saw Garcia surprisingly triumph in the final against Sabalenka. CP by WTA Tour
