MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Homegirl Ons Jabeur didn’t get to the Monastir final. But the match between Alizé Cornet and Elise Mertens should have still been quality.

It wasn’t; Mertens was all over it.

In Ostrava, Iga Swiatek narrowly escaped it Saturday against Ekaterina Alexandrova. And it was the same for Barbora Krejcikova against Elena Rybakina. About what you’d expect with three Slam champions in the semis of a 500.

Two Roland Garros champions went at it Sunday in a marathon that may well go down as one of the matches of the season, when it’s all said and done.
