The WTA Tour head to San Diego for the final WTA 500 tournament of the season. Here is all the information you need regarding WTA San Diego Open 2022.
Previously known as the Southern California Open, it is a prestigious tennis tournament contested on the outdoor hard court. This WTA 500 event is the last one for the season of 2022.
The WTA San Diego Open 2022 is scheduled to begin on the 10th of October at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego, United States. Many top female players have already reached the beautiful California town to play in this prestigious event. The top seeds consist of six of the top 10 players in the women’s ranking, including world no. 1, Iga Świątek.
No. 1 seed of the 2022 San Diego Open is the world no. 1 Iga Swiatek. The 21-year-old is having a phenomenal year. This year, she won a total of seven titles, including the French Open, the US Open, and four WTA 1000 championships.
The 2nd seed for the tournament is Paula Badosa. The 24-year-old is currently ranked 3rd in the world. Although the Spanish tennis star won only one title this year (Sydney Tennis Classic), her consistency has been impressive throughout the year.
Aryna Sabalenka is the 3rd seed of the San Diego Open 2022. The 24-year-old Russian has had an uneventful year as she dropped out of the top 5. Sabalenka reached a career high, world no. 2 in 2021. However, her form dipped this year as she failed to win a single title. The highlight of her year was making the semi-finals in the Cincinnati Open.
