BRD Bucharest Open, July 7 – July 13, 2014 – First Edition
July 7, 2014 was the inaugural day for WTA tennis in Bucharest, since the first edition of BRD Bucharest Open started. The event is hosted by Arenele BNR which also hosted the ATP event in April.
The tournament, held for the first time in Romania, will have finals on July 13. For this event came to Bucharest 64 of the biggest names of world tennis, headlining Simona Halep, the best Romanian tennis player of all time and owner of 3rd place in the WTA rankings.
The most expected matches by the Romanian public are the ones of Simona Halep and this is the reason the BNR Arena was full for the first match of World No. 3, playing against Indy De Vroome. After winning the match (6-0, 6-4), S. Halep said to the press it was great to have the support of Romanian public.
On July 10, Simona Halep meets Aleksandra Krunic (155 on WTA ranking). I guess everyone wishes for a final between two Romanian players so we’ll come back with the news.
