MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

ATP Tour – Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2022 final results

WASHINGTON, D.C. – It was absolutely jam-packed on the men’s side Wednesday in D.C., as the seeds get into action.

And Eubanks v Tiafoe was an inspired choice for the night session, given the demographic and because Tiafoe remains a “local” kid.

And Kyrgios and Tommy Paul – great mates off court – was another competitive one.

(And we haven’t even gotten to the mostly-American Grandstand lineup).

Meanwhile, in Mexico: Félix Auger-Aliassime played a local wild card (and had a surprising amound of trouble). And No. 1 and No. 3 also played Wednesday night – Daniil Medvedev, for the first time since Mallorca in June. And both won.
