STANFORD, CA, USA - With Serena Williams' returning to the winners circle, the continuing good form of Andrea Petkovic and strong showings from several home hopes, there were plenty of good storylines at this year's Bank of the West Classic.

However, it was not only the women on the court that were creating an impression in Stanford. Behind the scenes, tournament organizers assembled a stellar line-up, including an all-female TV production crew and tournament staff.

Among the women helping make the tournament's 44th staging such a success were ESPN's Grand Slam winning trio of Chris Evert, Mary Joe Fernandez and Pam Shriver, as well as tournament director Kim Hall Uliasz, US Open Series project manager Gigi Longhini Stramm and the WTA's Pam Whytcross and Donna Kelso.
