LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville International Open tennis tournament, scheduled for August of 2016, has been canceled.

The women's tournament was expected to bring some of the top 100 tennis players in the world to Louisville.

Organizers blame the cancellation on "unforeseen circumstances," but did not provide details on those circumstances.

Officials say the Women's Tennis Association has given Louisville an extension to launch the event in 2017.
