Exhibition next week on grass

Next week there is a exhibition tournament on grass. Does somebody know where it's played at and who is playing?

Its a very good lineup by the looks of it, but I would guess nalbandian is almost surely out?

Murray is supposedly heading down there...he really should consider Nottingham as he could do with some genuine match practice and points...not $$$.

There again, the Notts field is strong so he probably won't last R2

There's no way Dave is missing out on competitive grass court tennis before Wimbledon.
There are no serious injuries to nurse, either.

Its not competitive though really, its just an exhibition.

As for murray, I am surprised he didnt choose the dutch tournament or nottingham He needs some wins in a tournament, not meaningless exhibitions.

Re: Exhibition next week on grass

There's another one this week in Liverpool (that might be at www.liverpooltennis.co.uk).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

he said in his interview earlier that he'll probably play the exhibition because then he is guaranteed 3 matches (I think). So it could be better because he could lose in the first round of nottingham and only get one. He might change his mind though.

The Boodles $$$ is very nice as well as playing on grass for the practice.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.
