Earlier this year, the tennis tournaments were suspended nearly six months due to a pandemic. Nole added, “It’s been a strange year for all of us with a six months’ gap for all of us. We restarted the season in August, and I continued where I left off before lockdown and had a terrific run. I’m very pleased with the way things went.”
