In case anyone is interested. Just found out about this tournament:

Non-USTA, but has some sponsors.
Here's the catch. Each match is best of FIVE sets.

Prize money will probably be at least $500.

I bet there are going to be a lot of matches where one of the
players has to retire in the middle of the match for various reasons.

wow, haven't played 5 sets for about 20 years.

Would be tough to get a court for that long let alone last 5 sets.

That's cool to get a chance at some big prizes.



I have been playing a few TennisTour matches. They are only 3 sets max. No payout unless you win a league.
