Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Rain, rain and rain.

And so Denis Shapovalov finally played his opening singles match in Stuttgart, but went down in two tiebreaks against a good grass-court player in Oscar Otte.

He wasn’t able to get through his doubles quarterfinal because of rain and dark, and so might have a doubleheader on Friday.

Félix Auger-Aliassime also played two tiebreaks, against Tallon Griekspoor. But he managed to win them both and will play Karen Khachanov Friday.
