The WTA Paris Open tournament is to leave the French capital and relocate to Toulouse for the next five years, organisers announced on Thursday.
Next year's tournament will be held in the southwest city from February 7-15, retaining the same slot in the WTA calendar after the Australian Open.
This year's winner in Paris was Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who defeated Sara Errani of Italy 3-6, 6-2, 6-3.
