Stefanos Tsitsipas the latest tennis player to join Mouratoglou’s Ultimate Tennis Showdown event

·

Stefanos Tsitsipas is the latest professional tennis player, alongside Italian Matteo Berrettini, to join Patrick Mouratoglou’s Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS) event.

Announced in April this year, the event was organised by Greek-French tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou to entertain tennis fans with matches while under coronavirus restrictions.

The event is an international tennis showdown series, organising real competitive matches between ten of the world’s best tennis professionals.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Matteo Berrettini were the latest player’s to be announced for the event this morning.

The first five weekends of competitions will be taking place on-site at the Mouratoglou Academy in the South of France, with additional competition sites in other parts of the world to be announced soon.

10 matches will be streamed live every weekend for 5 weeks starting from June 13-14, accounting for a total of 50 matches through May and June.

UTS match winners will receive 70 percent of the showdown prize pool, while losers still receive 30 percent of that pool.

“While it’s a win-win for both players in this sense, there’s still a lot of money and pride at stake,” UTS organisers write on the official event page.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Patrick Mouratoglou also worked together this year to launch the “Beyond 100 Support” auction platform, supporting tennis players ranked outside the world’s top 100.

The funds raised through the platform contributed towards a broader approach by the ATP and WTA aimed at supporting lower ranked players during this challenging period.
