MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Simona Halep made her grass-court debut Monday in Birmingham, although not many of her activities over the last week looked much like grass-court practice. Turned out to be no problem.

And Bianca Andreescu was straight up, first day, and got through a tough three-setter against Katerina Siniakova.

As well, Canadians Gabriela Dabrowski and Erin Routliffe square off against each other in doubles, with the No. 2 seed and her Mexican partner prevailing.
