There's been a positive test in Palermo. The tournament looks as though it's continuing, but I really can't see how the tours can continue this year. There are going to be withdrawals all over the pla

I think it'll be called. Let's see. Wimbledon set the precedent so it's easier for other Slams to follow if that's what they decide to do. The Ryder Cup golf was cancelled yesterday and I think that w

Serbian players are also quite busy these days trying to put tennis back on the map.

In his Tennis Academy Janko Tipsarevic will organize Eastern European Championship..now don't be fooled by the name of a event because there will be some participants from other parts of the Continent as well..
In the mens draw so far are confirmed players like Miomir Kecmanovic,Viktor Troicki,Laslo Djere,Damir Dzumhur,Dusan Lajovic,Nikoloz Basiashvili,Ricardas Berankis,Alejandro Davidovich Fokina..with Filip Krajinovic,Borna Coric and Marin Cilic are also expected to enter to venue.

As for the womens part..Dalila Jakupovic,Jana Fett,Irina Begu,Patricia Maria Tig,Danka Kovinic,Olga Danilovic,Jasmine Paolini,Tamara Zidansek are so far on the list..

Tournament will start on June,15 in Belgrade.


But..but that's not all folks. Even bigger event is coming in the organization of World number one,Novak Djokovic. It's called "Adria Tour" and it will last from June 13 to July 5. This event will take place in several places of the region: Novak's Tennis Center (Belgrade) 13/14 June,Zadar (Croatia) 21/22 June, Montenegro 27/28 June, Banjaluka (Bosnia and Hercegovina) 3/4 July,with one more exhibition match between Novak Djokovic and Damir Dzumhur in Sarajevo on 5th the July.
Except Novak Djokovic,who is going to play all this two-days tournaments,biggest names are Dominic Thiem and Grigor Dimitrov. Of course,a majority of the Serbian and Croatian players are expected to take part..and more players from Europe.


It's a shame that Janko and Novak didn't find a way to join forces and create one event,but there you go..we'll have two of them. And both of them will be televised.

This is shaping up to be quite interesting. With the ATP and WTA shut down until at least July, there's a chance to do things in a different way with these new tournaments springing up and different formats. As possession is nine tenths of the law, so to speak, and the ATP and WTA are in effect no longer in possession, I wonder if this period could be the beginning of a sea-change in tennis.

Yup...this really doesn't make sense.


If I undestand correctly they plan to insert Madrid and Rome Masters in between USO and RG. What this mean is that we will have 6 weeks of top tennis after a 5,6 months of break...not to mention changing continents and surfaces..of course there is possibility that all tournaments will be played, but the question is who will play them?

This is crazy i think..i hope there is someone who will say "stop this madness!"
