The Monterrey Open, a WTA International event, is set to witness a star-studded extravaganza when the $226,750 tournament kicks-off on April 4 on the hard courts of Monterrey, Mexico.

Among the earliest players to have confirmed their participation are World No. 1 Angelique Kerber and former World No. 5 Eugenie Bouchard, the tournament organizers have revealed.

This will be Kerber’s third appearance here, having last played in 2013 where she made it to the final (lost to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova). Bouchard, meanwhile, will play for the first time here.

“I’m very happy to announce that I’ll be back in Monterrey again. I’m very excited to see my fans in Monterrey and Mexico, see you soon,” said Kerber, who won the Australian Open and US Open last year.

Bouchard also expressed excitement ahead of her maiden appearance. “I’ve been to Mexico a few times and I love it there, I’m looking forward to playing good tennis and enjoying a good week,” she said.
