My guess is that Janis and Martins reside in the US.
They have a place, where they are staying, when they are in the US. They are staying at some Latvian family, I am just not sure, if those are relatives or not. Probably they will schedule it differently in future, but currently they have these longer periods of time, when they leave to the US, stay there for some time and play some consecutive futures tournaments.
Good to see Mārtiņš, the more talented bro, being able to qualify
Of course, he must have done that with his qualifying draw. The main draw is not kind, but let's see, what he can do. I guess it will be streamed, which is excellent news for me. So far I have seen Podžus brothers playing only in Latvian national championships
But have never seen them playing international events.
I am only a bit puzzled, why they didn't sign up for doubles here, it has a rather weak list and not even 16 pairs in the draw
