"With the tour being suspended for the foreseeable future, I am happy to have the chance to compete again. When the guys gave me the call, I didn’t have to think twice. I am looking forward to going out there doing what I love!"

"PlaySight is proud to be the technology partner of these events. The current situation demands for less man power, and using our fully automated streaming technology and smart scoreboard is a great way to minimise logistics but still deliver engaging content. I am all for the message this event is sending, that tennis can still be played in a responsible environment, but made available to fans who love to watch it."
PlaySight Managing Director Europe & UK
"I asked myself a simple question, ‘What can we do today that will help better serve our community’? Given all the negative sentiment regarding postponements and shut downs, I wanted to somehow bring the joy of tennis back to peoples lives, and that is how the event was born. I am fortunate that I work in an environment, where putting all the pieces of the puzzle together was quite simple, and luckily things fell into place. I can not wait for the tour to return to normality, but until then if we can help the players we will do whatever we can."
