The Sparkassen Cup is a defunct WTA Tour affiliated tennis tournament played from 1990 to 2003. It was held in Leipzig in Germany and played on indoor carpet courts.
The inaugural event was held from 24-30 September 1990, shortly before the German reunification.
Steffi Graf won the first four titles and won the tournament again in 1998 to make her the most successful player at the event. Anke Huber, Jana Novotná and Kim Clijsters also won multiple singles titles at the event.
Famous quotes containing the word cup:
“In poorer lands
No one touches the water of life.
It has no taste
And though it refreshes absolutely
It is a cup that must also pass
Gets some advantage....”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
