Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

The semifinalists at the Citi Open are going to be pretty worn out, with many having to double up on matches and some of the matches going late into the night.

But that’s why they pay them the big bucks.

In Los Cabos, with a smaller draw, they are already at the finals stage on Saturday, with No. 1 Daniil Medvedev looking to start his summer hard-court campaign with a title.

And in Montreal, the qualifying begins for the men’s event with a gaggle of Canadian men competing. They’re all long shots. But sometimes long shots come in.
