Tournament Info

Tier: International
Prize Money: $250,000
Surface: Clay
Director: Sandra Reichel
The red clay of the tennis courts at the NÜRNBERGER Gastein Ladies is a sharp, yet beautiful contrast to the green of the surrounding forests and the white of the Alps mountain range.

Among the stars who won their maiden titles here are Francesca Schiavone, who captured the inaugural event in 2007, and 2009 champ Andrea Petkovic, who was victorious here again in 2014. With her first WTA title here in 2013, Yvonne Meusburger became Bad Gastein's first Austrian champion.

The Czech Republic's Lucie Hradecka was victorious with four different partners from 2007 to 2011, making her the fifth woman of the Open Era to win a doubles tournament at least five consecutive times.

Bad Gastein is a spa town in the Austrian state of Salzburg, situated at the northern rim of the Hohe Tauern national park. "Bad" means "spa", reflecting the town's history as a health resort. It also is famous for its winter sports. The townscape features historic multi-story hotel buildings erected on the steep slopes.
