Tennis East Coast is pleased to announce on-site coverage of the Charlottesville Challenger at the Boar’s Head Tennis Club in Charlottesville, Virginia. I’ll be live-tweeting and conducting player interviews during the final weekend of the event. This will be a first Challenger for me. Tennis East Coast’s Steen Kirby had such a good time at the 2012 Tallahassee Challenger that I thought I had better check this one out personally. I’m looking forward to providing commentary during the event and reviewing the vaunted venue itself.
On Monday night, event organizers announced that admission is free to this year’s event. Jesse Levine is expected to the #1 seed, followed by Alex Bogomolov, Jr. A PDF of the Player Acceptance List is available here.
