Your Call, July 15th

Tuesday, July 15, 2008 /by


Good morning. As usual, please use this space for discussing today's tennis, and for other general tennis-related talk. There are currently four ATP tournaments under way, as was the case last week - an unusual total, driven by the compression of the calendar due to the upcoming Olympics. Three are claycourt events - Amersfoort, Umag and Kitzbuhel. After these three are over, there will be no more events on clay until 2009. The US Hardcourt season begins this week, with Indianapolis.

In Kitzbuhel, Andreas Seppi is the number one seed. In Amersfoort, it's Marc Gicquel. Fernando Verdasco is seeded one in Umag. James Blake heads the list of seeds in Indianapolis.

There are currently two WTA events in progress - the last of the clay season, in Bad Gastein, and the first of the hardcourt season, in Stanford. Agnes Szavay and Alize Cornet head the seeds in Austria; Serena Williams and Anna Chakvetadze are the top seeds in Stanford.

Note: As always, "Your Call" is the daily thread specifically for the purpose of getting together on the cyber-sofa to discuss or call ongoing matches, or hot tennis topics of the day; It's the"Crisis Center" thread for those weeks when there are no Grand Slams, Masters, or Fed or Davis Cup in progress. You can go off-topic here if you like as well. This makes it easier for you to stay on-topic at "premium" posts. For going off-topic, you also have Monday Net Posts and Deuce Club on a regular basis.
