Thumbs up NYC gets two new tournaments, including a Grass Challenger!

West Side Tennis Club gets two new tournaments

March 9, 2004
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- Two new pro tennis tournaments will be held this year at the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, the former home of the U.S. Open.

One event is a newly sanctioned WTA Tour hard-court tournament Aug. 23-28, leading into the U.S. Open.

A grass-court USTA Pro Circuit men's challenger June 7-13 will be added to a May 10-16 clay-court challenger that began last year.

The West Side Tennis Club hosted the U.S. Open and its predecessor from 1915-77. The Grand Slam tournament was played there on grass until 1974, then on clay the next three years.

It would be nice if the challenger was an ATP tournament

They had one of those years ago jose, there are enough tournaments in the USA.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
