BRADENTON, FL, USA: Qualifying gets underway today in the singles event and one of the leading players looking to earn a spot in the main draw off this ITF Pro Circuit tournament is third seed Djordje Djokovic who is also certain to draw a lot of attention.

Whilst his eldest brother Novak, the world number one, is seeing action in London, England in the ATP’s World Tour Finals, 17-year old Djordje will be opening his account across the Atlantic hoping to reach the main draw.

His previous nine main draw appearances on the ITF Pro Circuit have all been courtesy of a wild card and should the teenager come through qualifying it’ll be his first main draw appearance outside of native Serbia.

You can follow his progress and that of his fellow competitors by visiting the tournament home page where results will be uploaded daily following close of play each day.
