ATP Tour: Feb. 4 final results

When there are three 250-level events in the same week, you’re going to see a lot of unfamiliar names.

That’s great for them, but it doesn’t make for much star power until at least the Wednesday night. Qualifiers vs. wild cards, stuff like that. And then you have withdrawals, like (we’re presuming) Gaël Monfils in the doubles, which is a shame for young partner Dorian Descloix.
