Sept 10-16 marks the 2012 Bell Challenge in lovely and historic Quebec City. Canada's French-speaking province (where everyone is also fluent in English) will host tennis fans from around the globe, for this tournament, which offers a $220,000 purse.
The courts at the Bell Challenge are hard surface and are indoors, so the weather will not be a factor. Past champions at this respected tournament include Lindsay Davenport, Jennifer Capriati and Maria Sharapova. This particular tournament has eight times been named the WTA's International Tournament of the Year.
