Simona Halep, Emma Raducanu headline scary good field in Transylvania
Cluj-Nepoca unveiled the entry list for its second 250 event of 2021 and is getting back to its spooky roots with a hilarious Halloween theme.

It’s officially Spooky Season, and what better way to celebrate than spending a week with the wickedly talented Simona Halep and Emma Raducanu in Transylvania?
A day trip away from Count Dracula’s infamous Bran Castle, Cluj-Nepoca will host a second WTA 250 tournament in 2021, following up its inaugural Winners Open earlier this summer. With its finals set to take place at the height of Halloweekend, it’s safe to say the tournament has embraced a comically eerie theme in promoting the event.
“Come to Transylvania for the vampires, stay for some amazing and inspirational athletes!” the tournament wrote on its official social media, noting fans are free to bring garlic to ward off any unsavory spirits.
The event will play host to a slew of groovy ghoulies: not only hometown hero Halep and US Open champ Raducanu—whose father is Romanian—but also Top 20 stalwart Elise Mertens, an on-fire Anett Kontaveit, and Roland Garros quarterfinalist Paula Badosa.
Check out the full entry list and get ready for some scary good tennis.
