As many as 2,000 fans will be able to attend a new WTA event in Prague set to take place from August 10-15, organisers said on Sunday. One of the first WTA tournaments to take place after the coronavirus suspension, the Prague Open will be played on the Sparta Prague clay courts in the Czech capital. "We are already in talks with the top Czech players. We will prepare mobile stands with a capacity of 2,000 seats," said tournament director David Trunda. Tournament spokesman Karel Tejkal said the event is not a postponed version of May's Prague Open which did not take place because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
