INDIAN HARBOUR BEACH, FL, USA: The second week of June will see tennis fans in Florida flocking to the east coast of the American state where, for the third year running, a men’s tournament on the ITF Pro Circuit will be taking place in Brevard County.

This small city – at only two square miles – will be hosting top quality tennis action at the Kiwi Tennis Club where past champions have been Jesse Levine (2011) and Chase Buchanan (2012). Both Americans, although Levine now plays under the Canadian flag, won all-American finals in straight sets and are enjoying high ranking status with Levine currently at No. 94 whilst the defending champ, Buchanan, is at a new career high of No. 346.

Buchanan, who will be 22 come the start of this year’s tournament, is not yet confirmed to return and defend his crown but there is still time with the entry deadline set for 23 May 2013.
