“Last year, we unveiled an updated tournament experience for attendees, complete with enhanced hospitality and new special events,” Bob Moran, Volvo Car Open Tournament Director, said. “It was one of our most successful tournaments to date and we’re building on that momentum for 2020. We are shaping up to have an outstanding player field competing in April and we want to carry the world-class experience throughout the event. Attendees can expect to see more on-site enhancements at the upcoming tournament, including additional food and beverage experiences and more opportunities for fans to interact with players and Tennis Channel talent.

Every year, we challenge ourselves to take the tournament to the next level and we’re confident that 2020 is going to be our best year yet.”
