Grand Harbor Golf & Beach Club and the city of Vero Beach have a rich history in supporting professional tennis. The last time that the USTA Women’s Pro Circuit visited Vero Beach was in 2014 at the Vero Beach Tennis Club. The 2014 event featured six players that have so far gone on to achieve career-high world rankings of 58 or better and was won by Laura Seigemund of Germany, who reached a career-high of 27 in the world in 2016. The second round of qualifying in 2014 featured a 16-year-old Naomi Osaka of Japan, against a 15-year-old American, Sofia Kenin. Over the last 15 months, Osaka has gone on to achieve the World Number 1 Ranking, won the very dramatic 2018 US Open by beating Serena Williams, and triumphed at the 2019 Australian Open. Kenin has recently been voted the 2019 Most-Improved Player on the WTA Tour as she won three WTA Titles this season and competed as an alternate at the 2019 WTA Finals in Shenzhen, China, which prompted her to rise to a career-high number 12 in the world.
