The Thailand Open in the district of Hua Hin returns for a second edition as a fully-fledged Tour-level tournament on the WTA tour.

Running from January 29th to February 4th, this WTA 250 tournament will welcome 32 players to compete for ranking points and a main tour title. As one of Thailand's top tourist destinations, Hua Hin will also be a major sporting attraction at the end of January.

Four of the world's Top 50 players have already committed to play in the event, which is held on outdoor hard courts at the True Arena in Hua Hin, including 2023 Australian Open semifinalist Magda Linette. Since its inception in 2019, the Thailand Open has crowned a new champion each season.

The Pole is the tournament's top seed and a former champion (2020) when the event was staged at an International level. China's Lin Zhu became the inaugural champion when the tournament was a freshly minted 250-level event last season.

Lin will return to defend her crown and be joined by Australia's Ajla Tomljanovic, who won her biggest WTA title late last season after a turbulent period with injuries. Tomljanovic will cash in on her Special Ranking of World No. 33.

Outside Lin, the Chinese contingent takes up most of the spots in the main draw. The likes of Xinyu Wang, Xiyu Wang, Yue Yuan, and Zhuoxuan Bai also feature. Former World No. 2 Paula Badosa will make her debut at the tournament in what will be her visit to Thailand.

There is an exciting mix of youngsters and experience in the lineup. The players with potential include Czech teenager Linda Fruhvirtova, French one-hander Diane Parry, and crafty Colombian Camila Osorio.

The veteran's list includes players such as Tatjana Maria, Laura Siegemund, Emina Bektas, and Viktorija Golubic, all of whom are at least 30 years of age. You can check the initial entry list of the 2024 Thailand Open down below.
