Barcelona Will be Loaded With Top Players

Andy Murray will challenge the home-grown clay superiority of six-time champion Rafael Nadal at next month's Barcelona clay event. Tournament director Alberto Costa was pleased to announce a high-profile field, headed as usual by king of clay Nadal, who is defending yet another title at the Real club de Tenis from April 21.

In addition to No. 2 Nadal and No. 4 Murray, three other Top 10 players will be on hand in the Catalan capital: three-time finalist David Ferrer, Czech Tomas Berdych and Serb Janko Tipsarevic. 

 

No Davis Cup TV Coverage for South African Fans 

South African tennis fans will have to suffer through the weekend's Davis Cup zonal tie with Slovenia in Soweto without any television coverage, with the national broadcasters declining to provide service.

 

Little Mo is Offering a New Event

A new event: The Nesquik "Little Mo" Internationals for boys and girls: 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 years old will be held this summer. The tournament will be held at the historic West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, New York from August 19-25 and it is open to any player worldwide. All matches will be played on clay courts with traditional yellow balls.

 

Bank of the West Classic to Bring in Legends

With the Olympics wreaking havoc on the summer schedule, the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford has made adjustments to its player field.

Traditionally in a terrific spot two weeks after Wimbledon, the tournament, which usually draws a slew of top 20 players, will be played the week following Wimbledon this year. Therefore, even though it has recruited defending champion Serena Williams to the tournament, the July 9-15 event is not counting on a lot of good Europeans to make the 12-hour flight from London to California and then return again two weeks later to participate in the Olympics at the All England Club, so it has secured US legends Pete Sampras, Jim Courier and Michael Chang to participate in a series of exhibition matches, July 11-13.
