Superheroes, Princesses and tennis matches at the Connecticut Open, Finals take place today!

Wednesday at the Connecticut Open tennis tournament was Super Hero and Princesses day for the day session and fans were treated to their favorite superhero walking around. Kids and families enjoyed the festivities along with some great tennis.

The weather was perfect and fans got to see some matches: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova defeated former world No.6 Carla Suarez Navarro 7-6(3), 6-0. Kirsten Flipkens continued on her journey from the qualifiers, defeating fellow qualifier Ana Bogdan. Shuai Zhang defeated Megda Linette and in an evening match Number 2 seed Dominika Cibulkova defeated Alize Cornet.

American fan favorite, Sloane Stephens stopped by New Haven to help promote a partnership between Connecticut Open and Soles4Souls. Fans coming to the tennis finals today can bring a pair of their own gently worn shoes to donate in boxes near the stadium, which will be recycled and redistributed to people in need.

Around 100 female high school athletes had the chance to get some great advice from former UConn Women’s Basketball star Rebecca Lobo, who said that she had great experiences in sports and away from sports but the experiences out of sports were because she had participated in sports.

There's still tickets available for today's final with Dominika Cibulkova taking on Australian Daria Gavrilova. Matches start at 12:30p. You can save 25% using code CO17SUMMERFUN.
