Later last week, Paradorn Srichaphan, the co-director of Thailand Open 2020, scheduled to take place between February 8th to February 16th, had confirmed that the $275,000 WTA Tour events would boast pink courts in order to raise awareness about breast cancer.
Apart from that, a handsome chuck of ticket sales would be received by the Queen Sirikit Centre Breast Cancer Foundation, a charity founded, shepherded and fostered by Her Majesty, Queen Sikrit, the Queen mother of Thailand.
In factuality, breast cancer has been the most frequently observed carcinoma among women, while female with hereditary history of breast cancer or women in late-reproductive ages or post-menopausal period are more susceptible to breast cancer and every year more than 2.1 million new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed across the globe.

The courts look and play great and we know that they will see plenty of amazing tennis during the week…….We have some incredible players coming to Hua Hin to compete and it's going to be wonderful to see talented global stars like Elina (Svitolina) and Sam (Stosur) stepping onto our eye-catching pink courts………”
