WUHAN, China - The Wuhan Open - a Premier event starting in 2014 - held its official announcement on Saturday, August 17, officially launching a global campaign for its emblem, mascot and slogan.

Peter Johnston, Managing Director of the WTA Asia-Pacific, officially announced that Wuhan - the hometown of 2011 French Open champion Li Na - will be the host city for the Premier-level event.

As a key step in preparing for the event, the event operator - Wuhan Sports Developing Investment Ltd Co, or WSD - launched a campaign to attract global attention to the tournament. The winner of the competition will receive 100,000 RMB and a permanent and personalized free seat at the event.

The Wuhan Open will feature at least seven of 2013's year-end Top 10 players competing for more than $2.4 million in prize money, with 900 ranking points going to the winner. It's the first step in Wuhan's "Tennis City" goal, and WSD hopes to make it a world class event and exciting for the public.
