MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

The Porsche-decorated Stuttgart tournament was all alone in its time slot a year ago, with a cutoff that meant if you weren’t top 30, you didn’t have a chance to get in.

But that has changed this year, as the Rouen tournament (a WTA 125 before this) not only upgraded to a 250 – but also invested in changing its indoor hard surface to indoor clay for the occasion.

As well, the beautiful Centralito in Portugal welcomes the women, in a joint ATP Challenger / WTA 125 event outdoors.

(Stuttgart and Rouen are 6 hours ahead of EDT; Oeiras is 5 hours ahead)
