The waiting is almost over as next Friday (18 January) sees the opening tournament of the 2013 season of the ITF Beach Tennis Tour get underway.
Players will be chasing the first ranking points of the new year in the Chilean city of Coquimbo, a city which also played host in the opening month of last year and saw Eric Alvarez and Marcelo Guzman take the men’s title with Joana Cortez, who finished 2012 ranked joint seventh in the world, and Natalia Rojas triumphing in the women’s event.
National interest in this Grade 4 (G4) tournament is expected to be high following the recent success of the Chilean women’s team at the 2012 Bolivarian Games where they took the titles in the singles and doubles events.
