The first ever edition of WTA Chennai is expected to be played in the early part of 2020 if things go to plan. And if you are looking for all the possible options to watch the WTA Chennai live streaming, get the latest tips and predictions or buy tickets to this competition, we have all of that sorted here.
According to latest reports in Indian media, the Tamil Nadu Tennis Association president and former Indian tennis star and Davis Cup player Vijay Amritraj said they were looking to continue their talks with the WTA to try and bring a tennis tournament to the state in 2020.
Speaking to the media, Amritraj said:
“In the early part of 2020, we will try to do a WTA event in Chennai. I have already made the request. We are looking to do a similar kind of event that we did for the men.”
The men’s event that Amritraj is talking about is the ATP Chennai that was played in the city from 1997 after having been hosted for the first time in New Delhi. Players like Stan Wawrinka, Milos Raonic, Marin Cilic and Kevin Anderson have all played in the tournament which was later moved to Pune. It is now called the Tata Open because of sponsorship reasons.
Amritraj noted they had spoken to WTA who have shown keen interest to bring the tournament to Chennai. He also added the finances needed to organise a tournament of that magnitude would be INR 6-7 crore (1 USD = INR 70 approximately) and the state government has been involved in the discussion as well.
WTA Chennai Live Streaming Options:
Much like most of the other WTA tournaments, one can expect to watch the WTA Chennai with WTATV.com after paying a monthly subscription. You can also live stream the event live with bet365.com but there could be geo-restrictions and a pre-funded account is needed for it.
