Just wanted to throw out a plug for our friendly neighborhood tennis tournament. See this link for details:


This is the best tennis you're likely to see in the Pittsburgh area. The Futures circuit is roughly the equivalent of AA baseball (with the "Challengers Tour" being AAA). Most players in the tournament have world rankings of between 500 and 1500 but many are young, up and coming talents. Andy Roddick, Mardy Fish and Taylor Dent are all players that had their professional beginnings in the Futures Circuit. The purse for the tournament is $10,000. Also, running simultaneously, is the National Collegiate Clay Court Championships (NCCCC) which draws some of the top college woman players in the country.

The main draw for both tournaments begins tomorrow and runs through the weekend at the Mt. Lebanon Tennis Center. It's a great environment to watch world-class tennis up close. If you're in the Pittsburgh area, I encourage you to check it out.
