Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

Both the singles and doubles final in Kitzbuhel, and the doubles final in Umag.

But everything else is semifinal time. And the Ram/Sock vs. Kokkinakis/Kyrgios – if it happens – have more than your average 250 doubles semifinal spice.

The Umag singles final is looking like Alcaraz vs Sinner. But as we’ve seen during these purgatory weeks, anything can happen.

As well, we’ve just arrived in D.C. for the Citi Open. So we’ll keep close tabs on the qualifying for that one as well.
