MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

The singles and doubles finals in Montreal, with more than a few surprises along the way, are somewhat unexpected. But it was a great day of tennis.

And in Cincinnati, along with the end of the qualifying, there were a few first-round singles and doubles matches.

Those included Canadian Denis Shapovalov, who is teamed with Karen Khachanov as he was in Montreal.

And for the third consecutive tournament, he faced his sometimes doubles partner and friend, Rohan Bopanna. This time, he won.
