FedEx is happy to announce the sponsorship of a new WTA tennis tournament, the BNP Paribas Fortis Diamond Games* that will be held from 7 to 15 February 2015 in Antwerp. Tournament Director Kim Clijsters herself proudly announced the re-launch of the Diamond Games at a press conference. "After seven years, world class tennis is coming back to Antwerp. The new Diamond Games will not only become a high level tennis event, but much more than that", said Clijsters.
The competition will involve some of the biggest stars in tennis and several players from the WTA top 20.
The trophy for the tournament will remain the traditional golden racket, covered with diamonds. The player who wins the tournament twice in three years' time becomes the owner of the racket.
