Tennis Scotland Open Tour 2022 Masters
• 3 MINUTE READ
The best players from around the country will take to the indoor hard courts of Scotstoun Leisure Centre on Monday, 19 December, and Tuesday, 20 December to compete in the finals of the 2022 Tennis Scotland (TS) Open Tour.
Competing for two of Tennis Scotland’s most coveted pieces of silverware, the Derek and Allan Sword trophies, and a prize pool of £4,000, 28 players will compete to be crowned the 2022 TS Open Tour Masters champion.
The end-of-year event will be contested by the top 14 male and female singles players on the TS Open Tour leaderboard, made up of the players who accumulated the most points throughout the year. On Monday, Round 1 and quarter-finals will be played with the winners returning on Tuesday for the semi-finals and finals.
University of St Andrews’ Nick Rosenzweig will be the No.1 seed in the Men’s draw, with Giffnock’s Nicole Clarke heading up the field in the Women’s draw.
Last year’s female winner, Karen Lamb, will be looking to retain her title. In the men’s event a new winner will be crowned, bringing an end to Scott Duncan’s two-year reign following back-to-back victories.
Blane Dodds, Tennis Scotland Chief Executive, said: “The Tennis Scotland Open Tour Masters is a highlight in our competition calendar and an exciting tournament to end the year on.
“The Sword trophies are two of our most significant prizes on offer and we are looking forward to two days of competitive tennis at Scotstoun Leisure Centre.
“I would like to wish all players the best of luck at our final event which rounds off a very successful year of tennis in Scotland.”
The Derek and Allan Sword trophies honour two brothers who tragically passed away in 2001 and 2020. The former Broughty Ferry TC members embodied everything that’s good about the game and had the trophies named in their honour as a tribute to their passion for tennis.
