MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP – Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2023 final results

The 28-player draws in Doha and Marseille tend to backload the top players in the field.

And so, that’s why a player like Andy Murray is handy, as a good night-session draw on the Monday.

The No. 5, No. 6 and No. 8 seeds are somewhat less so. But they were the only seeds in action in Doha.

In Marseille, with a big contingent of French players, the situation was a little less dire.

And yes, for these purposes we’ll call Franco-American Maxime Cressy a local.

(Doha is eight hours ahead of ET, Marseille six hours ahead, and Rio two hours ahead)
