Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic TicketsThe Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic brings the excitement of WTA tennis to the Bay Area. Featuring a fast, hard court surface, it is the longest-running women’s-only professional tennis tournament in the world. The tournament first began play in 1971 when it was constantly switching venues all around the Bay Area. However, in 1997, the Bank of the West Classic, as it was then known, found a long-lasting home at Stanford and stayed there for two decades. Due to a new prohibition on hosting corporate-sponsored events, the tournament moved from Stanford to San Jose in 2018. Past champions have included all-time greats Serena and Venus Williams, Monica Seles, Martina Navratilova, Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, Chris Evert, Margaret Court and Billie Jean King. Navratilova is the tournament record holder with six singles titles and two doubles titles while Davenport holds three singles titles and six doubles titles.
