This thread will cover the upcoming two weeks.
ATP has Estoril and Munich this week, then will start Madrid I believe on Sunday or Monday (main draw).
For the ladies, WTA Madrid is an almost two week event. Qualies will start on Tuesday, main draw on Thursday.
Bianca Andreescu won't be there (covid), neither will Serena Williams (Tiriac said mean things about her), but other than that all the top players will be there, yes even Naomi Osaka!
Blue clay will not return this year either :(

match point in the TB, RBA on serve with one MP (6*-5?). Market must have thought he won the point, I wasn't paying super attention to the actual match.

I have personally no time or interest for UTR, but i would think that if someone were to have a talk with them and list events in terms of size every week and give them a priority list of what to offer, (ie point out to them that Bulgaria UTR is bigger than 15k ITF) there's a good chance they would listen. Basically I think they just don't know the difference between events at these lower level events.

Yeah thought he did enough myself too. But the Ruski did rock him a few times was a really good fight. I forked out for the ppv 9.99Laugh was sort of worth it though in the end as it was a good fight.
