MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

Kitzbuhel is done and dusted, as Roberto Bautista Agut takes the honors.

All that’s left of the summer clay was a potentially boffo clash in Umag between No. 1 seed Carlos Alcaraz and No. 2 Jannik Sinner. Won by Sinner, going away.

In D.C. and Los Cabos, the final round of qualifying wrapped up.

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis only got two games in of their doubles semifinal in Atlanta Saturday night. So they and Ram and Sock had to complete that, with the Aussies playing the final in the evening. And winning it.

That should ensure Kyrgios arrives in D.C. in … fine form.
