Just weeks before the US Open, several of the top 20 tennis players competed at the Southern California Open at La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California. As the tournament’s official watch sponsor, Bulova awarded a pair of fans with his & her watch prizes.
Fifth-seeded Samantha Stosur (Australia) defeated top-seeded Victoria Azarenka (Bulgaria) in a 6-2, 6-3 upset in the finals for her first tournament victory since her stunning 2011 U.S. Open title against Serenea Williams.
