"The Clash of Continents was conceived with the vision of creating a long-term sustainable event, which presents an interesting unique concept and the ability to unite continents together in support of tennis.

The inaugural 2012 edition, to be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on November 24th & 25th features four world-class tennis stars representing the continents of Asia, Europe, North America and South America.

With prize money of US$520,000, the continental round-robin format will have the players compete over two days and battle for "Pride, Honor & Glory".

Alongside the event is the addition of a Tennis Festival at the Kallang Tennis Centre that aims to encourage communities from all walks of life to learn tennis and to lead a healthy active lifestyle through sport.

With continuous support and involvement of the tennis communities, we hope the Clash of Continents will become more than just an event but a platform for tennis enthusiasts to connect."

There's also one women's match between Daniela Hantuchova and Shuai Peng.

Interesting (if unncessarily "high-minded") concept. I don't know how Europe will enjoy being represented by Tipsarevic.

Garcia-Lopez. Monaco. Nieminen.

Berta. Dzumhur. Baluda. Fernandes.

FITD: Current: 42/178 (18.02.13). Peak: 23/178 (08.10.12).
Suicide Tennis: Current: 67/190 (17.03.13). Peak: 53/186 (08.10.12).
