September 6, 2012 09:11 AM
Women's Tennis USTA Pro Circuit Wildcard Tournament in Gainesville
 
jonesville-pro-circuit-womenThe Women's USTA Pro Circuit Jonesville Tennis $10,000 Tournament will hold a pre-qualifying wildcard tournament on Sept. 14-16, 2012, with the winner of the wildcard event to receive a spot in the singles main draw of the USTA Pro Circuit tournament the week of Oct. 1, and the finalist to receive a spot in the qualifying draw.
 
The pre-qualifying event will be held on the claycourts of the Jonesville Tennis Center in Gainesville, Fla. Players must be 14 years old by the start of the event, and the entry fee is $50.
 
"Local players will be participating in order to qualify for the USTA Pro Circuit tournament," said event promoter Marissa Bressi. "The pre-qualifying tournament is a 32 draw, single-elimination format. It is the perfect opportunity for up-and-coming tennis players to establish a ranking, show off their talent, or work their way up the rankings to get into the qualifying draws of WTA Tour events."
 
The deadline to register for the pre-qualifying wildcard event is Sept. 12, 2012. For more information call the Jonesville Tennis Center at (352) 262-4905, or go to www.jonesvilletennis.com.
 
 
Isner, Fish and the Bryans Commit to 2013 Delray Beach ITC
 
NEW DelrayITC.jpgTop 10ers and U.S. Davis cup players John Isner, Mardy Fish and the Olympic gold medal winning Bryan Brothers will all be playing in the 2013 Delray Beach ITC.
 
Andy Roddick, who played his first professional match at the Delray Beach ITC, announced his retirement at the US Open. Roddick had initially committed to the event before his decision to end his 12-year playing career.
 
"I'm happy for Andy," said ITC Tournament Director Mark Baron, who gave a 17-year-old Roddick his first wildcard in 2000. "We've been close since giving him that first wildcard into an ATP event, and the rest is history. He brought as many new players and consumers to the game as any player has. As a fan and a tournament director, I'm grateful for his accomplishments and contributions to the game and I hope to see him stay involved in the sport."
 
Isner and Fish have both had outstanding results in 2012. Isner defended titles this year at both Newport on grass and Winston-Salem on hardcourts, and drove the U.S. to Davis Cup wins over Switzerland (beating Roger Federer) and France.
 
After defending his Newport title in July, reaching the Master Series Cincinnati semifinal and capturing the Winston-Salem title a week ago, the popular Isner has nine wins in his last 11 matches. The 27-year-old's Davis Cup win over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in April clinched a semifinal berth for the United States against Spain that will be played this month.
 
Fish became the 10th player in this year's US Open (a record) to complete a comeback after rallying from a 0-2 sets deficit. The 2009 Delray Beach ITC champion withdrew from the tournament because of a medical condition prior to a fourth-round meeting with Roger Federer. Fish still holds the distinction of being the only top seed in ITC tournament history to go on to win the title. The former Vero Beach resident has reached four semifinals in his eight Delray Beach appearances and owns a 19-7 record in the tournament.
 
The seven-time world No. 1 and 11-time Grand Slam champion Bryan brothers are fresh off their London Olympic gold medal win and already hold virtually every doubles record in tennis. The twins won ITC titles in 2009 and 2010, and in the 2010 ITC semifinals, became the only team in the Open era to win 600 career matches.
 
Fish and Isner will play their opening matches in Delray Beach on Tuesday (Feb. 26, 2013).  Fish will be playing the day session feature match with Isner, a 2012 Delray Beach ITC semifinalist, headlining the night session.  The Bryans will be featured on the Wednesday (Feb. 27) daytime ticket.
 
The ITC is continuing to offer an up-to-50% off ticket promotion during the US Open. Grandstand tickets are 50% off, Reserved tickets 15% off and Box seats 10% during the exclusive promotional window which ends Friday, Sept. 14, at 11:59 pm. For more info go to www.YellowTennisBall.com.
