Bay Area tennis fans have been waking up early to watch Wimbledon for the past two weeks. But when the women’s tennis world comes to San Jose in a month, they’ll see a grand slam-worthy field.

The 2022 edition of the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic will feature seven players currently ranked in the top 10 of the WTA, the most in the tournament since 1984.

In a press release announcing the field, tournament director Vickie Gunnarsson said, “The Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic has been featuring the world’s best tennis players for more than 50 years and this year’s player field elevates that tradition. From top to bottom this player list is loaded. Every session this year will have top-ranked talent which is great for fans.”

The top 10 players coming to San Jose State’s Spartan Tennis Complex are No. 2 Ons Jabeur, No. 4 Paula Badosa, No. 5 Maria Sakkari, No.6 Aryna Sabalenka, No. 7 Karolina Pliskova, No. 8 Danielle Collins and No. 10 Garbiñe Muguruza.

Notable tournament participants from outside the top 10 include Coco Gauff, the 18-year-old American phenom who reached the French Open final earlier this year, and Madison Keys, who won the Bay Area tournament in 2017. There is also Canadian Briana Andreescu, who won the 2019 U.S. Open.

Jabeur has been a rising star in the tennis world whose profile has grown exponentially in the past few weeks, especially after she played doubles with Serena Williams in a pre-Wimbledon tournament. From Tunisia, Jabeur has reached multiple Grand Slam quarterfinals before but advanced to the Wimbledon semifinals on Tuesday.

The Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic was founded by Billie Jean King and is the longest-running women-only professional tennis tournament in the world and is the first stop of the US Open Series. The WTA 500-level event will run from Aug. 1-7.
