Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Another match for No. 1 seed Carlos Alcaraz, who needed three sets to get through his season opener and faced the very capable qualifier Dusan Lajovic to try to get to the Buenos Aires semifinals. And he looked impressive.

In Rotterdam, No. 3 seed and defending champion Félix Auger-Aliassime took on No. 6 seed Daniil Medvedev in what could have been a pretty boffo quarterfinal.

Their last encounter, at the Australian Open last year, was … a lot of drama.

This one? Not so much.
