The Internazionali Femminili di Palermo is a women's tennis tournament in Palermo, Italy that is played on outdoor clay courts at the Country Time Club. The first two editions were part of the Satellite Circuit and since 1990 it was part of the WTA Tour. The tournament was categorized as either a WTA Tier IV or Tier V event from 1990 to 2008 and became an International Tournament in 2009. In 2014, the license for the event was sold for six years to Kuala Lumpur's Malaysian Open (contract for 3 years with an option for additional three).[1][2] The tournament is scheduled to return to Palermo in 2019 as a WTA International event, replacing Jiangxi International Women's Tennis Open which is now moved to autumn calendar as a part of China Open series.[3]
