In Carlsbad, Venus Williams is the tournament favorite at the Acura Classic. Williams, who made headlines earlier this summer when she captured her fourth Wimbledon crown, won the Acura Classic three years in a row (’00, ’01, ’02). Because of her long history and commitment to the San Diego event (she first played here in 1995), she was presented with the Acura Classic Loyalty Award in 2002. Her defeat of Marion Bartoli to win this year’s Wimbledon championship moved her back into the top 20 rankings on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour for the first time in a year. Currently #17 in the world, the former #1 ranked star has 35 career Tour singles tiles to her credit and is an Olympic Gold Medal holder in both singles and doubles.
Now in its 24th year, the Acura Classic is one of the premier events on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and one of the largest women’s tennis tournaments in the world.
