Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

They gave Hamburg champion Lorenzo Musetti as much time as they could in Umag – scheduling him for his first-round match for the latest possible slot, Tuesday night.

But that’s still a pretty quick turnaround after such a momentum, career-changing moment Sunday in Hamburg – not to mention the final against Carlos Alcaraz was a pretty exhausting one physically. But he got through, in three sets.

In Atlanta, you had a hot one in the Atlanta lunchtime heat and humidity between Jenson Brooksby and … Benoit Paire. Who now will drop out of the top 100 for the first time in seven years.

And an all-Aussie night session that turned out to be a serious disaster.
