This is one of those tournaments that is a little too big to be held in a week but not big enough to fill 2 weeks. So just like a Grand Slam event by the end of next week there won’t be many matches on each day. It will also mean some late nights so those of you who work during the day will have matches available when you get home and those of us who are lucky enough to do this full time will be going to bed in the early hours.
Today the qualifying rounds for the WTA event start and the ATP qualifiers start tomorrow. Main draw matches begin on Wednesday for WTA and Thursday for ATP.
I probably won’t be posting picks for the qualifying rounds as liquidity isn’t guaranteed. Being a big tournament we do have some decent players who have to qualify and these matches could well attract the traders’ money.
