Twelve seeds were in action Tuesday in Winston-Salem.
Four went down, one didn’t even get on the court, and seven advanced.
While lucky losers Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Max Purcell, who did not sign in Sunday leaving Noah Rubin to play Andy Murray, did ink their names on the signup sheet Monday.
With two seeded players pulling out late, the two get byes into the second round. Canny move. And then they won their matches.
