This week on courts 39/2021

The week before Indian Wells we need to find out who has form and who has not. Four tournaments this week will help us in a big way.

Tennis Week 39/2021

ATP 250 San Diego Open

Place: San Diego, USA
September 27 – October 3
Surface: Hard
Financial Commitment:
Draw size: 28

Rublev, Shapovalov, Ruud, Hurkacz, Schwartzman, Auger-Aliassime. That does not look like a 250 tournament. The last accepted player into the draw is 43rd in ATP ranking. That is a promise of excellent tennis.

ATP 250 Sofia Open

Place: Sofia, Bulgaria
September 27 – October 3
Surface: Indoor Hard
Financial Commitment:
Draw size: 28

Sinner, De Minaur, and Monfils are the highest-ranked players on the field. Surprisingly, the home boy Grigor Dimitrov chooses San Diego over Sofia Open but that does not mean the quality of the event will be lower.

WTA 500 Chicago Fall Tennis Classic
