Weintraub makes waves at ITF Futures

Away from the charm of the clay courts of Roland Garros and a far cry from the lawns of Wimbledon, for the past nine weeks in Israel men and women from 15 countries (including Israel) have been playing intensive and quite often excellent tennis at the ITF Futures tournaments in Herzliya, Ashkelon, Acre and most recently on the Kfar Maccabiah courts in Ramat Gan.

The ITF (International Tennis Federation) Futures circuit is played all year round at various sometimes testing venues, in more than 60 countries worldwide, ranging from Australia to Zimbabwe and Zanzibar to Austria.

The circuit is designed to give young professionals, and sometimes the not so young but still hopeful players, an opportunity to earn ranking points that will give them a coveted place on the ATP Challenger circuit.
