    Speculation is this will be after the TMC at the end of the year.
    Looks like it will be November 22.

    I totally missed your post from a few weeks ago. I didn't know they were going to do an exhibition.

    The date is named in the last paragraph. Hopefully there will be a livestream!

    Re: Exhibitions

    So, this Liverpool Tennis International Tennis Tournament this week is apparently the biggest exhibition event in Europe.

    I'm trying to understand the format from their website (http://www.liverpooltennis.co.uk), but there seems no rhyme or reason to it. There's a men's, women's and (male) legends tournament, but I can't find any draws, and it seems Rusedski is playing both men's and legends

    David Ferrer is the highest ranked ATP player participating in it.

    The highlight so far would be that someone named Liz Thomas, who had to qualify into this and is ranked 718 in the world, beat Ashley Harkleroad in straight sets

    I think it's part of the "Hurlingham" exos. A friend of mine who lives in London usually goes. I'll ask her to give a report.

    I know nothing about Boodles.

    I'm assuming it was on grass.


    Glad Nicky beat Spadea. That must have been entertaining

    I believe that because of rain delays, some matches were 1 set. How fair is that....

    I wasn't sure where to put this since we haven't covered the tennis played at the Pan Am games at all.

    Venezuela's Milagros Sequera won the womens Gold Medal by beating Colombia's Mariana Duque 3-6, 7-6, 6-1.

    Congratulations Milagros!
