Speaking to the sports newspaper Olé, the Rosario native said: “I’m already excited about the fact that the tournament is held, and that women’s tennis is being talked about again in Argentina. It is something very important for women’s tennis in general. I am very happy that Martin (Jaite) and all his people have opted for women’s tennis. Obviously, I’m very excited to go, I’m going to participate, it’s confirmed. I hope to arrive in the best way, that there is a lot of fans, and that many people can enjoy it. And above all that, there can be many Argentines in the draw”.
Regarding the development of women’s tennis in Argentina and in the region, Podoroska said: “That a WTA is made is something important.”
The event will distribute 115,000 dollars in prize money and the champion will obtain 160 points for the ranking. The Argentina Open will have a singles main draw of 32 players and 16 doubles pairs, and a classification of 8 tennis players in singles.
The WTA Tour added the date of the Argentina Open WTA 125k to its official calendar, which will take place between October 31 and November 7, at the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club.
The women’s tournament, like the men’s version of the ATP Tour, belongs to and is organized by Tennium, which also joins the women’s circuit with the Montevideo Open, another WTA 125k competition that will be held between November 7 and 15, in the Carrasco Lawn Tennis Club. Thus, Tennium has added two tournaments to the highest level of the international women’s circuit.
“It is very important for Tennium, as a global sports company, to add these two women events to our portfolio, in addition to the one that will be held in Valencia during this month. This shows the solidity of Tennium who adds these tournaments to the management of several of the best players in the world and promising figures, as well as Marta Marrero in paddle”, said Martín Hughes, partner and executive director of Tennium Latin America.
