MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

ATP Tour – Tuesday, Feb. 15, 2022 final results

It’s veteran’s night in Marseille as former top-10 French stars Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon meet.

There’s some poignancy to it. Both are in the twilight of their careers, and both needed a wild card to get into this 250 tournament.

Also – Andy Murray in Doha.

And a lot of Americans in Delray Beach.
