Re: Is anyone playing on GLTA tour?

The 2014 Asia Pacific OutGames were just awarded to Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia - near where I live!! http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/...21/3507186.htm

There better be tennis! This is awesome news - we're a small city in northern Australia and hardly the centre of anything. Can't wait!

Re: Glta

Just entered into the Australian Gay and Lesbian Open in Sydney in Feb 2013. It's now a Masters event on the GLTA tour - one of five.

I have an A-grade SF result to defend. Eep!

Re: Glta

Good luck!

Mr.SerenaWilliams and I participated in the Gay & Lesbian US Open this year and we were both injured, played 20%, played like a top 500 junior and lost.

thanks. and :hugs: for you gurl for your results this year. was that the tournament that was streamed or something and you were talking about it on TF? I think I remember checking out your progress

I would love to play a few international events when I finally finish my PhD sometimes next year and give myself a bigass holiday. A good friend in NY is top on the list so I'll have to visit when a US Open is on - either the pro one or the GLTA one.

Re: Glta

If all goes well with my training this year I plan on entering:

Toronto, ON - Canada. (05/18/2013-05/20/2013)
Columbus, OH - USA. (07/19/2013-07/21/2013)
New Hope, PA - USA. (08/24/2013-08/26/2013)

...my only qualm is that I'm rated 3.5 USTA, but I went 2-8 (singles) and 3-1 (doubles) this season.
So ... the skills are there, but my mental game is SH!T, I'm not sure which bracket(s) I should aim for to play.

Thoughts?

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Yeah, the Gay & Lesbian US Open is played in Stanford at the Bank of the West Classic site and the school has there courts streamed online. It was tons of fun. Going back next year.

I think you should work your ass off for the next few months and play B's. That way we can play dubs as I have to play A or Open singles.

B's for singles, and A's for dubs? I can work towards that. I've actually won a couple 8.0 USTA Mixed Doubles and Doubles matches (each of the opponents were 4.0's) so that's a positive sign. It's my singles mental game that needs help, .
