About WTA Budapest

WTA Budapest joins the St Petersburg Ladies Trophy as European tournaments held in the early spring, bolstering the WTA Tour’s presence in Europe at this time of the year and giving top players looking to tune up their games ahead of the major spring hard-court events at Indian Wells and Miami the opportunity to do so in glittering European cities. The Hungarian Ladies Open welcomes some of the WTA Tour’s finest as they battle for prize money, ranking points and prestige on the indoor hard courts of Budapest.
The historic and beautiful Hungarian capital of Budapest was formerly home to a WTA Tour event played on clay in the summer, a tournament which included Zina Garrison, Amanda Coetzer, Magdalena Maleeva, Jelena Jankovic, Hungary’s own Agnes Szavay and Simona Halep among its champions. The tournament was relocated to Bucharest in Romania in 2014-15 and Budapest hosted an ITF $100,000 event in 2016 before re-acquiring the International-level WTA Tour event in 2017.
Hungary’s tradition of female tennis players includes Agnes Szavay, who won four WTA Tour singles titles, reached the quarterfinals of the US Open and was ranked as high as world no. 13, as well as top-50 players Melinda Czink and Greta Arn, now retired. In recent years, Timea Babos, the inaugural Hungarian Ladies Open champion, has been ranked as high as world no. 25 and is an accomplished player in both doubles and singles, while Dalma Galfi was the ITF World Junior Champion after winning the US Open girls’ singles in 2015.
Played on indoor hard courts at the BOK Event Hall, which has hosted Fed Cup ties and Challenger Tour events and is part of the SYMA Event and Congress Centre, the Hungarian Ladies Open features a 32-player singles draw and a 16-team doubles draw and offers a prize money commitment of $250,000.
Belgium’s Alison Van Uytvanck became the third player in the tournament’s history after Anna Smashnova (2005-6) and Agnes Szavay (2009-10) to win back-to-back titles in Budapest in 2018-19. Van Utyvanck, a French Open quarterfinalist in 2015, defeated Dominika Cibulkova in three sets in the 2018 final before successfully defending her title in 2019, beating Marketa Vondrousova in the title match. Vondrousova would go on to reach the final of the French Open.
