NONTHABURI, THAILAND: This week the ITF Pro Circuit is back in the city of Nonthaburi for the first time since 2010 and men’s and women’s tournaments are being held simultaneously each with a prize money fund of $10,000.

The singles events have now reached the quarterfinals stage and with only four seeds having progressed in both the men’s and women’s events, picking a winner is not going to be an easy task for tennis fans. With Nungnadda Wannasuk, the last player in either draw to claim an ITF Pro Circuit title in this city back in October 2010, making a second round exit in the women’s event, new champions are now assured.

All four women’s doubles seeds are still going strong and, upon taking their places in the semifinals, are yet to drop a set between them.

The semifinalists are also now know for the men’s doubles event and, following the successive round eliminations of the fourth and then the third seeds, the event remains on course to see the title match fought out between the top seeded British pair, Lewis Burton and Marcus Willis, already three time finalists in 2014 (winning the title twice) and going for a ninth career title together and the number two seeds from Japan.

You can follow the progress of players here, and in all other tournaments this week, via the live scoring feature available on the ITF Pro Circuit homepage.
