What to look forward to:
Mixing it up with some singles and doubles from two MatchPlay locations, the evening is capped off by red-hot Brandon Nakashima taking on Ernesto Escobedo from Newport Beach.
It may be a lighter Tuesday than normal, but the morning begins with an intriguing match between Anna Kalinskaya and Frenchwoman Marine Partaud, who entered as a wildcard. Later in the evening, the youngest player in the 2019 US Open men’s Main Draw, Zachary Svajda, continues his run of form against Ernesto Escobedo.
The hits keep coming on Wednesday, with six matches across the country from 10 AM to 7 PM EDT. With many compelling matches throughout the day, we’ve got our eyes on the battle between the 18-year-old top-150 player Whitney Osuigwe and No. 80 Jessica Pegula in Orlando.
We’re excited to welcome world No. 62 Lauren Davis to the series as she takes on Katrina Scott from Columbus. Their match will be followed by another installment of the Torpegaard vs. Wolf saga, which has produced some of the highest quality tennis of the series.
We end the week with some compelling matches from Newport Beach, as we see Claire Liu and Coco Vandeweghe back at it in a SoCal battle. Later, Marcos Giron and Svajda, whose last match last week was decided in a third-set breaker, will send us into the weekend.

Caroline began playing tennis at age 5 in her hometown suburb of Chicago. Her debut on the WTA tour came in 2016. 2018 turned into a breakout year for her starting at the BNP. There, as a wild card into the main draw, she had a second-round victory over No. 30 Dominika Cibulkova. In the next round, she pushed world No. 1 Simona Halep to three sets. She also made it to the first round of Wimbledon and the US Open that year, as well as the second round of the French Open, her best result at a Grand Slam.
Caroline is currently ranked WTA 134, down from a career high of 102 after her banner year in 2018. Caroline is arguably as strong a doubles player, having advanced to the 2019 US Open semifinals.
Caroline has been a dominant force in our series and is currently third on our leaderboard with six matches completed. However, she is ranked first out of all qualified (5+ matches) players!
Caroline is competing from Orlando, FL.

A native of San Diego, Zach began playing tennis at age two. In the relatively short time since, he has made quite a splash on the tennis world.
His accolades include earning his first ATP World Tour ranking point at the age of 15. The following year he won the USTA Boys' 18s national championship, which earned the 16-year-old a wild card into the main draw of the 2019 US Open. He is the youngest player to play in the men's draw of the US Open since 2005.
Zach is currently ranked ATP No. 945, but we see that changing once the pro tournaments begin again.
Svajda has been a consistent and growing presence in our series, with four matches under his belt. Three of these went three sets against the likes of Sam Querrey (ATP 40) and Marcos Giron (ATP 102). Zach's first match this week is Tuesday at 6 PM EDT against Ernesto Escobedo (ATP 181).
Zach is playing in Newport Beach, CA at Palisades Tennis Club.
