Aloha! The Hawaii Open presented by the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority, a Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) tennis tournament, hosted its first-ever world class tennis tournament November 20 – November 27, 2016, at the Patsy T. Mink Central Oahu Regional Park in Waipahu, HI.
American CiCi Bellis won her first WTA title at the inaugural Hawaii Open, defeating top-seeded Zhang Shaui.
Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki, Nicole Gibbs, and other WTA players completed the draw that included a 32-player singles main draw, an 8-player qualifying draw and an 8-team doubles draw.
2016 Hawaii Open Champion CiCi Bellis and 2016 Runner-Up Zhang Shaui have committed to returning to Hawaii this November. The 2017 tournament will increase its doubles draw from an 8-team draw to a 16-team draw due to the crowd enthusiasm of doubles matches in 2016.
In addition to top-notch professional tennis, the Hawaii Open also features vendor booths and food and beverage options.
The Hawaii Open is the only WTA tournament held after the US Open in the United States and the only tournament held during Thanksgiving Week. It is the first WTA tournament held on Oahu.
