Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP – Thursday, Feb. 23, 2023 final results

The top four seeds in Marseille took the court – Hurkacz, Sinner, de Minaur and Dimitrov. Or were supposed to

Of notable mention was the match between Sinner and wild card Arthur Fils, who made a nice splash two weeks ago in Montpellier and is getting some pub as an 18-year-old on the rise in France. But he went straight through, after Sinner withdrew.

Félix Auger-Aliassime was impressive against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina – a former junior rival against whom he always has to effort pretty hard.

And the highlight match in Rio between Carlos Alcaraz and Fabio Fognini, although not pretty at times, had everything to give the crowd its money’s worth.

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