Fans packed the stands all week for the first clay court event of 2013, the Copa Claro Colsanitas.
One of the biggest draws of the week was Jelena Jankovic, who posed here with some of the ballboys.
Another star attraction was Paula Ormachea, Argentina's No.1 and a first-time WTA finalist here.
There was another grrr-eat guest at the tournament, Tony the Tiger from Kellogg's Frosted Flakes.
There was a lot going on for the young ones, too, including this IMG Academy kids tennis clinic.
The Copa Claro Colsanitas player party was also a big event. Nina Bratchikova was among the guests.
Lourdes Domínguez Lino's two WTA titles both came in Bogotá, first in 2006 and second in 2011.
