Grass season is finally here. It’s short and sweet. Six tournaments over three weeks in the lead-up to Wimbledon — almost no one plays more than two of the three weeks and everyone’s eyes are on the first week of July.
Estoril draws seven top 30 players this week despite being a tournament that is only four years old. Meanwhile Munich, always has a strong field, being in one of Germany’s most populous cities, the heart of a tennis playing nation.
Leg two of the Sunshine Double gets underway today. This will be short and sweet, because if you read last week’s preview of Indian Wells… well, it’s basically the same. A 96 person field and 95 of them played in Indian Wells.
