If you enjoy watching and playing in tournaments, now is the season. Here is an update on several going on at this time…
Pros at Stowe VT
Friends and I went up to Stowe VT on Wednesday to have a close-up view of young American Frances Tiafoe, Tommy Haas, and several other top players in the inaugural Stowe Mountain Lodge Classic – aiming to be a regular pre-Open exhibition warm-up.
$45 seats in the sixth row, baseline provided “up close and personal” view of the action. More information click HERE
National Grass Tournaments
This week also saw many familiar senior tennis names playing on grass at their National events. Jimmy Parker, Jody Rush & Co. played the 70s at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, with results HERE.
And Fred Drilling, Joe Bachmann and other 75s – as well as super 80s — played in Pontiac MI, with their results HERE
Naples Doubles Tournament?
Adding a doubles tournament to the curtailed January line-up in Naples is still a possibility! Stay tuned for further developments.
Two-weeks of TV coverage starts on Monday. In my humble opinion, watch for one of our favorite Old Guys (Nadal, Fed) to be in the mix at the end; and I like the looks of Spain’s Muguruza (in many ways) to be hanging around on the final weekend.
