Tinsley Pro Tennis Tournament Main Draw Starts Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

The Boyd Tinsley Pro Tennis Tournament begins Tuesday with the Main Draw.   Monday night the players gathered for the annual pre-tournament banquet at the Boar's Head Sports Club.

This is the 12th year for the Tinsley tennis tournament.  It is the third $50,000 USTA Pro Circuit clay court event of the 2013 season.

Coco Vandeweghe is the top seed in the tournament.  Former UVa standout Lindsey Hardenbergh is in the main draw as a wild card.   This will be her sixth professional tennis tournament since graduating from UVa last year.

Hardenbergh says,  "Home court advantage for sure, I couldn't ask for a better fan base, it really does feel like home it feels like family.... adjusting as been the biggest thing, learning what a pro life looks like, learning the routine, the adjustments I need to make tactically, its all inclusive."
