Tennis Glory

I was really moved reading this great article by David Waldstein on the struggles of life for tennis pros trying to make it in the lower tiers of professional tennis.

Thanks to Sharon Fichman (@Sharon_fichman) for retweeting it.

Knowing that such hardships and disparities exist in a sport known for its nobler and more luxurious and genteel traditions is heartbreaking. After reading that I wish every girl and boy with a dream of playing professional tennis could see their dream of making it to the top come true.

Kiick Wins Opener in Sumter

A week after making her return to tennis in Bethany Beach, Delaware after being sidelined for nearly two years due to a multitude of injuries, illnesses and operations, American Allie Kiick is safely into the second round of the USTA Pro Circuit Palmetto Pro Open in Sumter, South Carolina. Kiick defeated Ellen Perez 7-6 6-4 in Tuesday’s first round, setting up a second round clash with either Katherine Sebov of Canada, the tournament’s number 2 seed, or American Sophie Chang. Sebov and Chang will play Wednesday, with the second round to be played on Thursday.

Good luck to Kiick, as she continues her journey back to the top!

Entry List for Twelfth Annual Revolution Technologies Pro Tennis Classic Released

The preliminary entry list for the 2017 $80,000 Revolution Technologies Pro Tennis Classic, scheduled for April 9-16, at the Kiwi Tennis Club in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida, has been released, and Kristina Kucova of Slovakia, World Number 82, is tentatively the tournament’s top ranked entrant.

The Har-Tru clay court tournament kicks off the 2017 USTA Pro Circuit Wild Card Challenge, which will once again reward the American player who accumulates the most points from the best two of four results over a series of four consecutive weeks of clay court tournaments played in Indian Harbour Beach, Dothan, Alabama, Charlottesville, Virginia, and Charleston, South Carolina, with a spot in the main draw of the French Open.

The tournament always fields a highly competitive and talented entry, and with a purse increase to $80,000 for this year’s tournament, making the Revolution Technologies Pro Tennis Classic the richest prize of the Pro Circuit’s clay court season, and a schedule change so the event takes place three weeks earlier than usual, the tournament was rewarded with what so far appears to be the deepest field in the tournament’s history. If you’re in the area during tournament week, be sure to some out and support these hard working ladies on the Pro Circuit!
