Battle of the Brits: Team Tennis coming up…

Damp squib this week…
That’s not been much doing for us this week.
The bookies seemed reluctant to give the Progress Tour Women’s Championships much coverage.
Our outsider pick Maia Lumsden ended up struggling with an arm problem, with a busy few days of competitive tennis taking its toll, after a long break. Lumsden had winning positions in both of her group matches, but ending up falling away at the end on both occasions.
The form women at the National Tennis Centre this week are the two pre-tournament favourites, Jodie Burrage and Katie Boulter. They meet in their last group match today. It’s looking odds-on that those two will end up playing out the final on Saturday, too.
Over in Germany, we ended up waiting all day for the players to take to court in Berlin for the latest round of Bett1 Aces exhibition play…
With rain delays wrecking the schedule, our pick Petra Kvitova never got out on the grass to face Elina Svitolina. They’re currently scheduled to try again on Friday with that match, but don’t be surprised if it ends up getting cancelled.
Not much to write home about at the moment then, but the end of the month will see things pick up for us significantly…
Battle of the Brits – and the Tours return…
On 27th July, Jamie Murray’s Battle of the Brits returns to the national venue at Roehampton. This time for a Team Tennis event, featuring both men & women.
If that’s anything like the first Battle of the Brits last month, it will be a well-bet and well-run tournament, compared to most ‘exhibition’ events in recent weeks.
That will take us in to August, when the official ATP & WTA Tours are due to resume, starting with women’s tournaments from 3rd August. Fingers crossed for that.
I’ll be back at the end of this week with one last look at the Progress Tour prices and match-ups. Then we’ll be turning attention to the end of the month & the start of August, when we can expect to start getting nice & busy once again.
Enjoy the tennis,
