The Toray Pan Pacific Open is an annual tennis tournament held in Tokyo, Japan. The 37th edition of the tournament will take place in 2022. The tournament is part of the WTA Tour and is one of the most prestigious events in Asia.

In September, the 37th season of the professional women’s tennis event Toray Pan Pacific Open 2022 will be held indoors on hard courts. It will be one of the WTA 500 events on the WTA Tour in 2022. It will be held at the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan, from September 19 to September 25. It will be the first event held since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which prevented it from taking place in 2020 and 2021.

The total prize money is $757,900. The Toray Pan Pacific Open is a yearly event on the WTA 500 tour for women’s tennis. The Pan Pacific Open debuted in 1984 after being known as the Sillook Open since 1976. This season saw 32 single draws and 16 double draws.

On the hard courts, singles and doubles matches are played in three sets. Singles are played over five rounds in a knockout style, while doubles are played over four. Despite being primarily an outdoor event, the Ariake Colosseum show court was among the first to have a retractable roof, allowing play to continue regardless of the weather.

Naomi Osaka is the reigning singles champion:

Naomi Osaka won the Toray Pan Pacific Open singles championship in 2019. She won the Pan Pacific Open in her hometown of Osaka by defeating Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the final. Two weeks later, she won the Premier Mandatory China Open. She won the tournament by defeating world No. 1 and defending French Open champion Ashleigh Barty in three sets after losing the first, as well as reigning US Open champion Bianca Andreescu in the quarterfinals. As the first Asian player in the women’s division, she is rated first in the world in singles (WTA).
