Wimbledon qualies start today but for those that don’t need them (or those who have chosen not to try for a spot this year), the third and final week of grass tournaments is here. Last week Feliciano Lopez made his second straight final and this time won at the prestigious Queen’s and Federer made short work of A. Zverev for his 9th title in Halle.
The first grass week has gone quickly and we managed to secure a small profit (Kontaveit won the tournament in Netherlands with odds of 11) and now the tournaments are getting bigger: 2 ATP World Tour 500 (instead of 250 last week) and 2 WTA (one Premier and one International). Let’s take a closer look:
With the French Open coming to a close, grass season is upon us. The first grass challenger has already started (Surbiton) and on Monday we’re looking at a total of 4 ATP and WTA grass tournaments starting, if the rain gods will allow it. Let’s attempt to make a recap of last year, a quick preview of this year and then specifically of next week’s tournaments.
