Tournament Info
Launching in San Francisco in 1971 and moving to Oakland in 1979, the longest-running women's-only tennis event in the world finally settled in its current home of Stanford University at the Taube Family Tennis Center in 1997. Bank of the West has been the title sponsor of the event since 1992, making its commitment to tennis one of the strongest in the world.

Stanford serves as the first tournament of the US Open Series, the North American summer hardcourt schedule that begins after Wimbledon and leads up to the US Open.

Martina Navratilova has the event record with five titles. Other all-time greats who have won here include four-time champ Kim Clijsters, three-time champs Lindsay Davenport, Chris Evert and Billie Jean King, and Margaret Court, Martina Hingis, Hana Mandlikova, Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario, Monica Seles, Serena Williams and Venus Williams. Davenport has the most doubles titles with six - each of them coming alongside different partners.
