UTR Pro Tennis Tour Recap: Horvit, Snitari Repeat as Champions

While the WTA and ATP tours were busy in Indian Wells and Miami, the UTR Pro Tennis Tour, or PTT, had events taking place in Japan, the United Arab Emirates, Croatia, the Czech Republic, and the United States.

Here’s a look at some of the champions.

Horvit Adds Title No. 6

Over in Boca Raton, Fla., another repeat winner found her way to the title. Mia Horvit, a former standout at the University of South Carolina, picked up her sixth PTT title and first since December 2022.

“I'm guaranteed matchplay and money, so it's a win-win on that end. Also you're prepping for other tournaments and you have so much matchplay, and you're dealing with different pressures,” Horvit told UTR Sports. “There's so many different benefits from it that are helpful.”

Familiar Faces Win in Dubai

In Dubai, Dmitry Vlasov won the first PTT $25K men’s event held during the week of March 4 and Ilya Snitari won the second one, a few weeks later. The win marked Vlasov’s first on the PTT but Snitari is well-acquainted with the winner’s check.

The 22-year-old Moldovan has won five PTT titles, including one of the first ever to be held in Dubai back in January 2022.
