Jelena Ostapenko will play at the Tallinn Open WTA 250
The Latvian number one Jelena Ostapenko (WTA 17) confirmed her participation in the Tallinn Open WTA 250 tennis tournament.
“I have always enjoyed competing in front of Latvian tennis fans,” said Jelena Ostapenko. “Unfortunately, the Billie Jeane King Cup and the WTA tournament will not take place in Latvia this year, so I decided to participate in the Tallinn WTA 250 tournament. I am looking forward to meeting the top players in Estonia as well as all the other best players. I invite all Latvian tennis fans to Tallinn at the end of September to enjoy high-level tennis.”
Jelena Ostapenko is currently ranked 17th in the current WTA rankings. In 2017, she won the French Open women’s singles, becoming the first Latvian player to win a Grand Slam singles title. She is also the first unseeded player to win a Grand Slam singles title since 1933. Ostapenko’s highest WTA ranking in 2018 was 5th place. So far, Jelena Ostapenko has earned nearly 11.5 million euros in prize money.
“We are very happy that Jelena Ostapenko is participating in the Tallinn Open tournament,” said Tallinn Open WTA 250 tournament director Allar Hint. “Jelena is a world-class player, a Grand Slam winner, and also from our neighbouring country, which certainly creates a good symbiosis and also gives the Latvian audience the opportunity to visit our tournament to see their star-player compete.”
