PWC Open is so compelling

The Cayman Islands Tennis Club is
hosting the 2010 PriceWaterhouseCoopers Cayman Islands Open Tennis Tournament
this week. 

This year’s PWC Open started on
Wednesday and goes on until 6 February and promises to be more exciting and
competitive than last year’s tournament, with the total sponsorship doubling to
$20,000. 

The total prize money for this
year’s PWC Open is $15,000 with the rest of the sponsorship going to a family
fun tennis day on Sunday for the juniors of Cayman at the Cayman Islands Tennis
Club.

This year’s tournament has the most
competitive field that has ever entered in the PriceWaterhouseCoopers Cayman
Islands Open. 

In the men’s open, Juan Rios is
defending his title from last year. He is a former world ranked inside 250. The
other pros coming in from overseas are Richard Henry from Barbados, Tony Mule
from North Carolina. 

The local pros competing are three
time winner, Eduardo Torres, along with Nigel Mitten, Rob Seward, Dale Avery
and Adam Bayley. 

This year’s tournament also
includes six top young players coming from Jamaica. 

The women’s draw also has more
players than last year’s tournament with a top player coming from the US as
well as Italy. 

Organiser Seward said: “There is no
charge to come out and watch some of the best tennis this Island has seen. The
round of 16 for the men’s open will begin next Tuesday 2 February along with
the women’s open division.

“We’re really grateful to
PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the main sponsor of the tournament. This is their
fourth year sponsoring the event and without them it would have been impossible
to stage a successful tournament. 

“We’re also very excited to introduce
two new sponsors for this year’s event; British Caymanian Insurance and Scotia
Bank.  These two new sponsors are the
main reason why the PWC Open is able to offer more prize money in hopes to
making an even more internationally competitive tournament.”
