WTA qualies start on Monday, the main draw on Wednesday.

ATP qualies start Tuesday, main draw on Thursday.

Apart from Indian Wells there's the usual hipster tennis with challengers, women's ITFs and UTR this week.

Happy punting!

Bummer for local lad at the Santiago Challenger. Led 5-1 in the final set to get his first ever victory at challenger level, at home to boot, but never even got to another game or break point for the rest of the match.

what are those "UTR" events in Bucharest and Barcelona?

are they like futures?

They are tournaments that are staged outside the tours organised and sanctioned by the regular international tennis bodies (ITF, WTA, ATP). It instead has the backing of Oracle. Level is about M15, W15 on the ITF tours. Lots of really young players or locals compete in them. E.g. the Romanian women's one this week has 18 Romanians, one Czech, one Bulgarian.

They are staged by Universal Tennis (UTR stands for Universal Tennis Ranking) in a round robin format, i.e they play in groups from usually Sunday/Monday (depends) to Friday, followed by a two match knockout stage on the weekend to determine the final positions that their payout is then based on. Pay is relatively strong compared to what most of these players would earn on the ITF tour, but no "normal" ranking points are awarded. By normal ranking points I mean ITF, ATP or WTA ranking points. So folks only play for a UTR rating, which is only of use to get into UTR events, and the money (plus maybe practice/match play in convenient places).

It's all streamed (by bookies and YouTube) and also archived (on YouTube), although with some hiccups here and there. They've committed to staging UTR events until the end 2022 or 2023 in the least for now.

Indian Wells went strictly for men's and women's courts today. Don't see that often at combined events.

this day sucks. Just qualies for ATP. Seeds don't enter for WTA until Friday. And a depleted field to begin with.
