The Zhengzhou Open is a tournament for professional female tennis players played on outdoor hardcourts. The venue is named Zhongyuan Tennis Training Base Management Center.
The event has been held in Zhengzhou, China, since 2014 as an ITF tournament and then as WTA 125 tournament in 2017 and 2018.
The event was subsequently upgraded and from 2019 onward it would be classified as a WTA Premier level tournament, replacing the Connecticut Open in the United States. Unluckely, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented it from happening.
As a WTA Premier level tournament, Czech athlete Karolina Pliskova was the first to win it in 2019. Unfortunately, due to injury, Pliskova will not be able to defend her title.
In 2023 Zheng Qinwen became the first home player to lift the trophy after coming back from one set down.
