Summer Clay Court Season and Grass Court Conclusion

This week the summer clay court season began, and the grass court season sees its final tournament.

On the women’s side you have the tournaments in Bastad and Bucharest. Headlining the Bastad tournament is none other than Serena Williams, fresh of her fifth Wimbledon title. In Bucharest, the top seed is surprisingly not Simona Halep. She decided not to defend her title and instead the top seed is Sara Errani.

On the men’s side, the lone tournament is the final grass court tournament of year in Newport. Players ascend on the International Tennis Hall of Fame for this annual tournament and the induction of the new class of hall of famers. More on the hall of fame inductions to come.

There is still much to talk about with Wimbledon, and this week is a great one to conclude talk of grass and get back to the clay before the American hard court season resumes.
