The man in charge of organising this year’s International Tennis Federation-sanctioned Cayman Cup says the Federation decided to be a part of this year’s tournament again because of how well it was run in 2015.
Competition Director and former Davis Cup player Karl hale says the ITF looks at things like facilities, organisation and quality of play.
“The play of the boys and girls was much higher than we anticipated,” Hale said. “And this year’s will be even better. So we think it’ll be a great success and this year we’re adding a professional component. So we’re gonna have an exhibition. Jesse Levine, a former top-50 player who defeated Marat Safin, among others, is gonna play as well. So we have a great tournament this year.”
Levine also is expected to hold a clinic on the tournament’s final day.
