Upcoming Tennis Events

From Davis Cup this weekend to Longboat Key in November/December, there is a lot coming up …

Davis Cup Semi Final Round

The US will have a tough challenge this weekend with both John Isner and Jack Sock NOT traveling with the team; and facing Croatia’s Cilic or Coric on their home turf.

Isner’s wife is due to deliver their first child and Sock injured his hip winning the US Open doubles title with Mike Bryan (whose brother Bob is recovering from hip replacement surgery).

The US team will be: Sam Querrey, Steve Johnson, Mike Bryan, Ryan Harrison and rookie Frances Tiafoe.  Spain and France meet in the other semifinal.  P.S. Have you seen ANYTHING in the news about this event?!

The TV schedule is below…

NSMTA Doubles Tournament

The National Senior Men’s Tennis Association (NSMTA) Senior Men’s Doubles Championship, a USTA National CAT III event, will take place September 28-30 on Martha’s Vineyard, MA.  For more information, signups, and draws (when out), click HERE.

John Newcombe’s Tennis Fantasies Camp

The Naples “Core Four” +1 (John Berry, Willy Hoffmann, Rich Tarantino, Tom Mackessy, and me) will be again flying AirBerry to the annual great tennis week on Newk’s tennis ranch in New Braunfels, Texas on Sunday, October 21st.

New “rookie Legends” at this year’s camp will include Johan Kriek, Mark Philippoussis, Wayne Ferreira, and Mikael Pernfors

Longboat Key Tournament

This excellent CAT II tournament will again take place at the end of November on picturesque Longboat Key near Sarasota, Florida.  With the support of the NSMTA, the tournament will utilize the new and popular round robin format for the doubles sections.

Doubles players will be guaranteed two main draw matches and often three in the round robin.   Because of large draws in LBK some doubles (32 draws) will start on Tuesday in order to finish by Sunday.

Any others that I missed??

  1. Supersenior team World Championships begin September 16 in Umag Croatia followed by the Individual World Championships the following week. Mark Vines of Naple’s World Tennis Club set a high standard last month in the Senior World Championships (60’s) winning both the team championships and the World Individual singles title.

    Winder, thanks for the addition. I know this one is difficult to follow online; but is there a link you would recommend? george

  2. It has been confirmed by an ITF spokeswoman that the (a?) chair umpire assigned to officiate the U.S. v Croatia Davis Cup semifinal is…wait for it…Carlos Ramos!

    Great! george

  3. Add USTA Florida Adult State to the lineup October 18-21 @ PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. All age divisions plus family events………

  4. You forgot to mention that our friend Ken Munson, longtime attendee at Tennis Fantasies, was invited by none other than Rod Laver himself to be Rocket’s personal photographer at the Laver Cup this week in Chicago. I understand Ken is already there.

    Marty, didn’t forget … didn’t know. That is great! george
