Good news for Challenger circuit! Joăo Lagos (Portugal/Estoril Open manager) will creat the Portugal Open Series. It's like US Open Series but in small version. There'll be some Challengers before the Portugal Open. Amazing!
These ones were not even schedule to begin with But yeah, I will only believe it when I see it with my own eyes, even after being schedule. For now it's just Lagos intention, in order to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the tournament. Not anything confirmed or even close to be confirm. Needless to say, would be awesome for us portuguese tennis fans. Let's hope it becomes reallity, but I don't have any high expectations for that.
