From Adelaide to Wimbledon – WTA announce first half of 2022 calendar
The wait is over to find out where the world’s best female players will begin their 2022 campaign
The WTA have announced the schedule for the first part of their 2022 season.
As previously announced, the year will begin with a series of tournaments in Australia, beginning with a WTA 500 event in Adelaide and two WTA 250s in Melbourne ahead of the Australian Open from 17 to 30 January 2022.
The first WTA 1000 of the season will be held in March in Indian Wells – back in its usual slot after its venture into autumn for 2021 – followed by the second in Miami.
The clay court season begins in the USA with a WTA 500 in Charleston, USA, and a WTA 250 in Bogota, Colombia, from 4 to 10 April. Roland-Garros, the clay-court Slam, will take place from 22 May to 5 June 2022.
Finally, the players will play on grass for a month, with the traditional UK series of tournaments an option ahead of Wimbledon. This part of the season starts on 6 June in Nottingham or S’Hertogenbosch, two WTA 250s. Berlin (13-19 June) and Eastbourne (19-25) will host two WTA 500s before Wimbledon, which will take place from 27 June to 9 July.
