What to look forward to:
Canadian veteran and Davis Cup player Peter Polansky joined the fun this week, going up against Mackenzie McDonald from Orlando.
A generally quiet day hosts an exciting evening match-up from Newport Beach, as young American Hanna Chang starts her MatchPlay run against former Australian Open semifinalist, Coco Vandeweghe.
Each meeting between world No. 55 Tennys Sandgren and Cleveland Open Challenger Tour title-winner Mikael Torpegaard has been a battle, and nothing suggests Wednesday’s match will be any different. From Columbus at 12 PM EDT.
Three out of four of Thursday’s singles players are inside the Top 100. First up: No. 39 and Delray Beach ATP Tour title-winner Reilly Opelka opening his MatchPlay 120 account in Boca against JC Aragone. Thursday also features a doubles match.
We wrap up the week with a night-session forward line-up, kicked off by Grace Min and Jamie Loeb at 4 PM from Orlando. At 6 PM EDT, we head to Newport Beach to watch rising WTA star Claire Liu take on Coco Vandeweghe, before No. 102 Marcos Giron takes on young stud Zachary Svajda in what has proven to be a very competitive match-up so far in the series.
