February 9-16, 2014!
By setting the dates for the 26th Dow Corning Tennis Classic one week later to February 9-16, 2014, players have indicated it’s a better fit for their schedules to make the Midland women’s pro tournament.
“That means we have an opportunity to develop a strong field of ranked players,” said Mike Woody, executive director of the tournament, a USTA Pro Circuit Event.
Of course if you’re one of only two $100,000 events on the 90-city ITF/USTA Tour, it probably makes financial sense for the international field to go Midland!
For example, pros finishing the Australian Open January 13-26, 2014, would find the DCTC stop more convenient to plan.
“We’re already hearing from fans who’re marking their calendar for Michigan’s only professional tennis where six Grand Slam singles champions took their baby steps: Maria Sharapova, Justine Henin, Anastasia Myskina, Li Na, Mary Pierce, and Francesca Shiavone,” said Sharon Cleland, assistant director of the DCTC.
