Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Jan. 23, 2022 (final results)

The main event is in Australia.

But on the women’s side, unless you’re in Melbourne, there is absolutely nothing for you to play on the entire planet above the $25,000 ITF level.

The men, at least have a couple of Challengers to move on to. And many of the players who lost in qualifying last week have done just that.
