Plexipave Selected for Three ATP Tournaments
March 2, 2010
The Regions Morgan Keegan Championships took place February 15 – February 20 at the Racquet Club of Memphis, Tennessee. This ATP World Tour 500 event is a combined men and women tournament hosting players such as Maria Sharapova and Andy Roddick. The Delray Beach International Tennis Championships, part of the ATP 250 events, took place February 22 – February 28. Both of these tournaments lead up to the first of nine ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events, the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells.
The BNP Paribas Open is the fifth most-attended tennis event next to the Grand Slams tournaments, and is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. The event is one of few that combine both men and women on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tours. This renowned tournament will take place March 8 – March 21 and will be held at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, the second largest stadium in the world. Competitors Roger Federer, the #1 world ranked player, and Rafael Nadal will both be competing in this event and may have another rematch opportunity. Nadal succeeded to win the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells last year and has captured a total of 15 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles, placing him just one title less than Federer. Indian Wells will be using the Plexipave surface for the twelfth consecutive year.
The 2010 tennis season began with the Plexicushion® Prestige surface at the Australian Open. The lead up events in Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Sydney, Hobart, and Brisbane also selected Plexicushion to provide the best in uniform and consistent conditions for the athletes as they prepared for the Grand Slam Tournament.
