The second edition will be played with a 12-man line-up featuring two groups in a round-robin format followed by a knock-out stage.
Successful inaugural Tennis Point Exhibitions Series
BASE Tennis director Ruben Herrera was pleased with the outcome of the inaugural Exo-Tennis event.
“There were many things to do but we are really happy that the first event went very well,” he told Andreas Thies and Florian Heer in the last episode of our tennis podcast “Challenger Corner”.
“Players were happy to return to the court for the first time after being sidelined for about two months. They also liked the format of the competition with short sets featuring games with no-ad scoring. Players were either able to go home after their matches or back the hotel, which is situated very close to the venue. That means even less people are at the BASE at the same time,” Herrera said.
The Tennis Point Exhibition Series 2 will be broadcast exclusively on the PlaySight Sports Network. Here you can follow the matches for free.
