Place: Stuttgart, Germany
June 8 – June 13

Stuttgart grass tournament will be played during the second week of Roland Garros, so players who did not succeed at the first three rounds in Paris can travel to Stuttgart. Therefore it is hard to pick someone as a favorite because of the unknown list of contenders till the last moment.

Who to watch: Zverev, Sinner, De Minaur – if available

WTA 125 Bol

Place: Bol, Croatia
June 7 – June 12
