WTA 250 Palermo Ladies Open

Place: Palermo, Italy
July 19 – July 25
Surface: Outdoor Clay
Financial Commitment: $235 238
Draw size: 32

Cirstea, Collins, Teichmann, Samsonova, Pera, and Golubic are favorites of this tournament in Sicily. I am not afraid of tennis with this lineup on hot Italian clay.

WTA 250 BNP Paribas Poland Open

Place: Gdynia, Poland
July 19 – July 25
Surface: Outdoor Clay
Financial Commitment: $235 238
Draw size: 32

The first tournament in Poland in a long time and everybody hoped that Iga Swiatek will play. However, the calendar collision with the Olympics canceled her attendance. That does not mean that the line-up will be subpar. We will see Putintseva and Zidansek in Gdynia plus the other seven players from WTA TOP 100.
