The Stanford Classic, currently sponsored by Bank of the West, is a week-long tennis tournament on the WTA Tour held on the campus of Stanford University in Stanford, California, United States. The 2014 event will be held on July 28 to August 3. Started in 1971, the tournament is the oldest women's-only tournament in the world and is played on outdoor hardcourts.[1] It is the first women's tournament in the annual US Open Series.

The tournament started out as the British Motor Cars Invitation in 1971 on the Virginia Slims circuit.[2] Martina Navratilova holds the record for the most singles titles: five (1979–1980, 1988, 1991, and 1993). It is currently owned and operated by IMG.

From 2014, the event will be scheduled a week after the normal collocation, in place of previous tournament Southern California Open[3]
