MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

ATP Tour – Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022 final results

Daniil Medvedev, the No. 1 seed, suited up in Metz for the first time in awhile. And his opening opponent is no tomato can.

It was Stan Wawrinka, who has won two matches in qualifying and one in the main draw to get there. And won.

Also entering stage left is Denmark’s Holger Rune, the No. 4 seed.

Dominic Thiem, who defeated Richard Gasquet Wednesday, was the opening opponent for No. 2 seed Hubert Hurkacz who, despite being ranked No. 10 in the world and having two *ineligible* Russians ahead of him, doesn’t make the cut for Laver Cup’s Europe team.

In San Diego, top seeds Dan Evans and Jenson Brooksby also took the court.
