2016 Coleman Vision 75K Women's Event Update

July 13, 2016 10:39 AM




The Pro-Circuit motto, “Catch a Rising Star”, truly applies to the Coleman Vision Tennis Championships (“CVTC”).  2016 will be the 19th year that World Class tennis will be played in Albuquerque—again at Tanoan Country Club with a view of the Sandia Mountains.   

The 2013 Coleman Vision Tennis Singles Champion, Shelby Rogers, had her best finish in a major during the 2016 French Open.  Her Quarterfinal Singles’ loss was to the eventual champion, Garbine Muguruza. Going into the tournament, Rogers was ranked 108. Her ranking currently stands at 60.  

Taylor Townsend, a Doubles Finalist with Melanie Odin in 2013, played two Main Draw Singles' rounds.  Other CVTC alumnae in Doubles and Mixed on the clay at Roland Garos included Naomi Broady, Asia Muhammad, Irina Falconi, Sloane Stephens, and Madison Brengle.

CoCo Vandeweghe, the 2013 Coleman Vision Doubles Winner with Eleni Daniilidou, had a great run in Paris—advancing to the Second Round of Singles and to the Quarterfinals of the Mixed Doubles with partner Bob Bryan.  Vandeweghe also has done well on the grass courts of Wimbledon where this year she lost in the fourth round.

Other Coleman players with a good showing at Wimbledon include Sloane Stephen, who had a run into the third round of Singles and Naomi Broady , who also made it to the third round in mixed doubles. Vandeweghe played mixed doubles also, losing in the second round.  Over ten former CVTC players were in the first round.  CVTC Tournament Director Sue Jollensten said the Wimbledon draw almost looked like a CVTC draw with so many Coleman players in the first round.  Many of these players will be representing their home countries at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro where the matches begin August 6th. 

Fans can look forward to another great tournament this year.  Don’t miss a thing! Qualifying Singles matches begin at Tanoan on Sunday, September 18th, with the Singles and Doubles Finals to be played Sunday, September 25th. Tickets can be purchased using the printable ticket forms found on this site.  On-line purchasing and details of the event will be available soon on this website.
