Tennis-X Notes: Yet Another U.S. Event Leaving the Country?

MEMPHIS MOVING?: The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that a deal to sell the combined ATP/WTA event to keep it in the city fell through, and now the event could be sold to outside interests who could move the event (see: Middle East, Asia, the usual suspects — goodbye to another U.S. event).

If I’m wrong I’ll be the first one to stuff my high-heeled foot back in my mouth.

ATP Barcelona Blog — Day 3; Nadal Rolls, Blake Rolled

ATP Barcelona Blog

Whoever coined the phrase “Sunny Spain” must have been drinking a bit too much vino tinto. The weather today was a cloudy and damp 61 degrees.
