SAN JOSÉ, CA, USA - With just one week to go until the start of the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic, the tournament has announced that two-time Grand Slam champion Garbiñe Muguruza will join the already star-studded player list.
“Garbiñe is incredibly talented and we are excited that she has chosen to play our event,” said Tournament Director Vickie Gunnarsson. “It is amazing to think that we now have four players that have won multiple Grand Slam singles titles and been ranked No.1 in the world competing in San José.
“Having this quality of a player field in our first event with our new title sponsor, and in this new venue, is truly special.”
Muguruza strengthens an already stellar lineup that includes 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams, seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams, two-time Grand Slam champion Victoria Azarenka, defending champion Madison Keys, 2017 singles finalist CoCo Vandeweghe and 2016 champion Johanna Konta.
Formerly known as the Bank of the West Classic in Palo Alto, the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic is a weeklong WTA Premier event scheduled for July 30-August 5 which will bring together the worlds of tennis and technology in a “festival of sports and entertainment.”
The new venue at San José State University will provide a high-end, family friendly atmosphere and will put fans close to the action as they watch their favorite stars compete.
