An exhibition match between Croatian Iva Majoli and former World No.1 Martina Hingis, which will be a repeat of the 1997 French Open final, will be one of the highlights of the 2017 WTA 125K Series Bol Open.
The WTA 125K Series Bol Open will take place from 5 – 11 June 2017 on Bol on the Croatian island of Brač.
Organisers today announced a strong field for the tournament now in its 13th year.
Local stars Ana Konjuh and Jana Fett were present today at the press conference in Zagreb and both announced they will be playing in Bol.
An added attraction will be a rematch of the 1997 French Open final at Roland Garros when Majoli takes on Hingis. Majoli won her first and only Grand Slam that year and the two friends will be going at it again 20 years later.
Prize money for the WTA event in Bol is $125,000. A full lineup of players who will take part in the tournament will be announced in May.
