The stars of women's tennis will see changes when they arrive at the Pattaya Open, with new courts and higher prize money of US$250,000 for the week-long tournament from January 26 at the resort's Dusit Thani Hotel.



“With the event continuing in the same week following the Australian Open we can expect another strong field for the 2014 PTT Pattaya Open. On a recent visit to Wimbledon we discussed player commitment for the tournament and there was a lot of interest from top players and their representatives. We hope to have most of the key players on our list signed up by the end of the US Open,” said tournament director Geoffrey Rowe.
Now in its 23rd year, Pattaya is one of the oldest fixtures on the WTA Tour tennis calendar.
