The bad, Saturday Jean-Julien Rojer announced he will be out for the season with a back injury. The good, Billie Jean King was in attendance for the opener.

She also says she's pleased with the growth of the sport in Springfield.

"It's because of the community you guys are coming out and supporting the team. That's what makes a difference over the years it's kept growing and growing and growing. This isn't just about Tennis, this is about community, this is about getting behind your team," said Billie Jean King.

And now to the match, here's the men's doubles. It's Michael Russell and Ross Hutchins taking on Frank Dancevic and Marcelo Melo. Great volley back and fourth and Hutchins puts it away with the forehand for the point.
