MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Friday, Feb. 25, 2022 final results

With the ouster of No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic by qualifier Jiri Vesely – a bit, strong, big-serving lefty – Denis Shapovalov has a different kind of challenge in the Dubai semifinals.

Shapovalov is a rather pedestrian 14-17 lifetime against fellow southpaws; only three of those loses have come against Rafael Nadal.

And in Acapulco, an early rematch of the Australian Open, featuring Rafael Nadal and … the new No. 1 on Monday, Daniil Medvedev. Nadal was in beast mode.
