Recently, Patrick Mouratoglou, or better known as the coach of Serena Williams, has announced that he will start a professional tennis league.
This announcement was made Saturday, with the league name confirmed to be Ultimate Tennis Showdown, or UTS. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this league was formed to allow players a chance to play and earn money. The competitions will be hosted at his academy in Nice, France.
At this time, play is set to kick-off starting May 16, with 10 matches being live streamed every weekend over the span of 5 weekends from May to June. World No. 10 David Goffin and World No. 103 Alexei Popyrin are set to play the first match of the league. Interestingly enough, Popyrin’s father is the co-founder of the league.
The UTS has no intentions of interfering with any other leagues’ schedules and is only meant to be a short fix.
