This event has a long history and is considered to be one of the biggest junior tour tournaments in the world. It has long been a magnet for the best junior players, since tennis stars such as Ivan Lendl (1978) or Goran Ivanisevic (1988) are listed as former tournament champions. But also current Top 50 players, like Simona Halep (2008), Sloane Stephens (2009) or Alexander Zverev (2013), have already won the longest running Grade A tournament in ITF history!
