MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

It was the first official day of the 2023 season (not that the 2022 season ever ended), and the first day of the inaugural United Cup.

You have to look at the rules of engagement, to see that the No. 1 women and the No. 2 men on each team played the first day. OR DID THEY?

Sometimes it was the No. 1 men and the No. 2 women.

Anyway, it’s a two-day thing. And all but one of the six ties played ended at 2-0 for the obvious favorite.
