STANFORD, CA – Six of the top 11 female tennis players have committed to play at the 2003 Bank of the West Classic, July 21-27, at Taube Family Tennis Stadium on the Stanford University campus.
Top-ranked Serena Williams headlines a field featuring two former world No. 1 ranked players, Lindsay Davenport and Jennifer Capriati, current world No. 2 Kim Clijsters, world No. 9 Daniela Hantuchova, and world No. 11 Jelena Dokic. Anna Kournikova, who did not play Wimbledon due to an injury, is also scheduled to play.
American players competing at the Bank of the West Classic include: Meghann Shaughnessy (No. 20), Lisa Raymond (No. 24), Alexandra Stevenson (No. 28), ex-Stanford star Laura Granville (No. 30), Ashley Harkleroad (No. 39), and Amy Frazier (No. 51).
The Bank of the West Classic is a WTA Tour Tier II event, featuring a 28-player singles draw and a 16-team doubles draw. Total prize money for the event is $635,000.
"As the first U.S. hard-court tournament leading up to the U.S. Open, we are really pleased to have a strong showing of American players," Tournament Director Peter Tatum said. "In addition to having three Americans among the top-four players entered, we also are able to showcase five or six other top-ranked Americans, against an ever-growing contingent of powerful foreign players who will be competing in the U.S. this summer."
