UTR Pro Tennis Tour Recap: Macedonia Hosts Its First Event in May

During May, five UTR Pro Tennis Tour (PTT) tournaments took place in four different countries. Each PTT is a $25K professional event that offers aspiring pros guaranteed prize money and multiple matches, thanks to a unique round-robin format.

Let’s take a look at who took home first-place checks.

Julia Terziyska, a 28-year-old from Bulgaria, won the first-ever PTT event to take place in Macedonia. With the women’s $25K tournament, Macedonia becomes the 27th country to host PTT events since the tour was launched in 2021.

In Japan, Taketo Takamisawa won his first PTT crown and first-ever professional title. The 26-year-old didn’t drop a set en route to the title.

Newport Beach hosted a men’s and women’s PTT tournament across two weeks. Lui Maxted, a 20-year-old from Great Britain, snagged his first pro title. He just wrapped up his junior season at TCU, where the Horned Frogs won the NCAA team championship. Maxted helped TCU to the trophy by playing No. 3 doubles and No. 4 singles.

The women’s May Newport event was won by Ashley Kratzer, a 25-year-old American making her return to pro tennis.

And last but not least, Maciej Rajski, a veteran on the PTT tour, picked up the men’s $25K in Greece. Rajski has now won a whopping nine PTT titles.
