National Campus to host wild-card event

In the wake of the ITF’s controversial revamping of its Futures Tour, the USTA has added eight “wild card” tournaments this year.

The second will be at the national campus in Lake Nona, Fla. April 23-27.


The winner gets a wild card into a $15K tournament, and the finalist a wild card into the qualifying.

A 15K doubles wild card goes to the doubles winner. 

Meanwhile, two large ITF women’s events in North America have been cancelled: a $100,000 in Tampico, Mexico the week of March 25, and a $80,000 tournament in the U.S. (site never confirmed) the week of April 8.
