Well the mystery is solved over the TBA announced tournament to take place the week before the US Open.

Forest Hills has a Tier IV tournament with only $74,800 prize money and is a 16 draw singles only event.

Last year it was won by Likhovtseva who beat Benesova in the final.

Nice event for players to warm up in NY before Flushing Meadows.

Wonderful news. It's been years since they had a tournament there. :)

This is where Helen Wills won her 7 United States Championships. :)

Hard Court. But, Forest Hills has several clay and grass courts, so they host ITF Challengers on those surfaces.
