    The Tournament:

    The WTA's Asia-Pacific presence has gotten stronger and stronger the last few years, and another example of that presence was the launch of the Tianjin Open, one of six WTA-level tournaments in China in 2014.

    The event is held at the Tianjin International Tennis Center, a state-of-the-art venue that has a 3,500-capacity center court, 12 outdoor courts with lights, four indoor courts and a tennis club.

    The largest coastal city in Northern China and a major seaport and gateway to the nation's capital, Tianjin is a hub of advanced industry and financial activity. It is also where Chinese star Peng Shuai resides. Src: WTA

    About Tianjin

    Tianjin is a major port city in northeastern China. Following the 1858 Treaties of Tianjin, several Western nations established concessions in Tianjin. The European-style houses, municipal buildings and churches in Wudadao (Five Great Avenues) are legacies of that period. Standing in contrast are the city’s many modern skyscrapers, including the iconic 415m-tall Tianjin Radio and Television Tower.
