Timea Bacsinszky shares her passion with future champions
Lausanne will host the first edition of the Ladies Open tennis tournament from 13 to 21 July 2019. The WTA tournament has been given the rating of an 'International' tournament and will take place at the Stade-Lausanne Tennis Club, located next to Lake Geneva. Spectators will have the chance to see some of the world's best female players, including the Lausanne 2020 ambassador Timea Bacsinszky.
The tournament organisers wanted to use the occasion of this WTA tournament to promote tennis in the Canton of Vaud. A key part of this will be the 'Timea Bacsinszky Challenge', a competition for female and male players under the age of 16 from 4 clubs in the region, with the winners winning the opportunity to meet Timea Bacsinszky. Yodli, the Lausanne 2020 mascot, will also be present for this meeting between the tennis star and the future tennis champions.
