• 2 MINUTE READ
With the final TS Open Tour leaderboard event set to take place this weekend (3-5 November), several Scots will be looking to seize the opportunity and qualify for the TS Open Tour Finals in December.
After 18 events of the £80,000 tour, University of St Andrews’ Nicolas Rosenszweig tops the men’s leaderboard with 13,860 points and Northumberland’s Teodora Prisadnikova is the leading woman with 10,780 points.
Stewart Enters As Top Seed
In the men’s draw, Rosenzweig comes into the Scottish National Open Championships as the fourth seed in search of his sixth tour title of 2023. Hamish Stewart enters as the top seed, followed by Ewen Lumsden and Euan Moore.
Stewart, from The High School of Glasgow, is currently ranked #763 in the ATP rankings and has been enjoying a strong run of international form, having reached his first ITF pro singles final, as well as making at least the quarter-finals in his previous six ITF events.
He is joined by fellow ITF pro tour player and second seed Lumsden, who has also enjoyed success in recent TS Open Tour events, having been victorious at the West of Scotland Open, Scottish Grass Courts (Giffnock) and the Ayrshire Open.
Moore Has Reached Semi-Finals
Moore’s consistent form has seen the 25-year-old reach the semi-finals of every TS Open Tour event he’s played in this year, and he will be bidding for his third title of the season, having already won the University of Stirling Open and the East of Scotland Open.
TS Open Tour stalwart Cameron Fryer, who plays at David Lloyd Dundee, sits second on the leaderboard. Having played in 12 events this season, the 18-year-old has impressed, reaching two finals, with a highlight run at the University of Stirling Open where he finished runner-up to Moore.
Teodora Prisadnikova comes in as the top seed in the women’s draw, with Newlands LTC’s Heather Barlow the highest-seeded Scot.
Prisadnikova has won two titles this season with wins coming at the British Tour Stirling and Bridge of Allan Open. She recently finished runner-up at the Scottish Clay Court Championships and has reached at least the semi-finals in five of the six events she has played in.
Hannah Rylatt Enters The Fray
GB National Tennis Academy player and Junior Wimbledon 2023 debutant Hannah Rylatt enters the fray as the second seed. The 17-year-old made her SW19 debut this year in the Girls’ Doubles draw and picked up her first ITF pro singles points at the W25 Nottingham.
Barlow leads the Scots, entering as the third seed, and sits second in the leaderboard having picked up four titles this season at Whitecraigs Easter Tournament, East of Scotland Open, and the Ayrshire Open.
Scottish Clay Court winner Amelie Brooks has climbed to third on the leaderboard in just three events and will also head north for her fourth TS Open Tour event. After finishing as runner-up at the British Tour Glasgow, Brooks enters as the sixth seed.
Open Winner Anna McKnight
West of Scotland Open and East Lothian Open winner Anna McKnight looks to reap more senior success on the Tour as a standout junior player. Scottish 14U Four Nations representatives Hannah Augustynska and Aadya Iyer Chadalawada have both been granted wildcards into the event.
The Scottish National Open Championships will take place at the University of Stirling from 3-5 November and the winner will receive £1,250. Runners up get £750, semi-finalists £400 and quarterfinalists £250.
