Champions change

The Vale de Lobo Grand Champions ATP Tour tennis summer highlight has changed its dates for the first time in the nine years of its existence to the second week of August (11 to14).

The move was made to fit in with the preceding Graz tournament, saving non-European players a week of inactivity.

Tickets are now on sale for the 20th Estoril Open (May 12-20) and can be purchased at either at the AlgarveShopping or Portimao Arena, Fnac shops or online at www.estorilopen.net and www.blueticket.pt.
