Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

A total of … 10 Frenchmen, a couple of them with double-headers, will grace the courts at the Open Sud de France Tuesday.

That’s a lot of local product to sell; it’s no surprise that the smaller events in France are among those, ATP-wide, that tend to be the most successful.

We’re looking at a the throwback serve-volley contest between Franco-American Maxime Cressy (that makes 11, technically) and his lefty doppelganger Antoine Bellier as a fast-paced, unusual type of match on the second court. It wasn’t all that competitive, but it’s about the process!
