Thanks, sounds like an interesting event. I dont really understand though, do the winners just get prize money? Why would players play this instead of WAT events?

By the way, just out of curiousity, what top men are competing?

Vincey!

heytennis: It's something like the Olympics, so they don't receive money. They play for their countries.

BTW, good luck Jozami, Garcia-Sokol and Cravero :bounce:

Yeah, you get gold, silver and bronze medals, just like in the Olympics ;) You play for your country, just like in Fed Cup as well ;) The mens list is also in the link at my first post. :wavey: BTW, there will be doubles as well :)

Estados Unidos da América. :)

Thanks for posting the list, it's a nice line-up for a non-WTA tournament. But is it organized within the ITF? I guess not since there's no prize money and no ranking points involved.

Kristi Miller as well. All three are NCAA players (with the exception of Cohen who was but just recently turned pro).

This is the equivalent of the Asian games or the European games, for those who asked.

Nice chance for Jorgelina. Hope she gets a good draw.
