MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

ATP Tour – Thursday, Feb. 17, 2022 final results

Four days after his breakthrough title in Rotterdam, Félix Auger-Aliassime took on the veteran Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for the first time in their careers.

Tsonga beat another French veteran, Gilles Simon, in the first round Tuesday.

Every single match but one on the Marseille sked involves at least one Frenchman. Can’t beat that for the home crowd. Same for the Americans in Delray Beach.
