Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Cana-Kiwi Erin Routliffe and partner Alicja Rosolska, who had a low-key nice run in Paris, have switched to the grass and are in action Monday in Nottingham.

The grass-season officially gets under way on Monday with the first round of tournaments in Nottingham and s’-Hertogenbosch.

There was some grass at the (high) ITF level last week, but this is the real deal.

There also is a WTA 125 on clay, in Valencia where a year ago it was the Bol, Croatia tournament.
