Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Dominic Thiem, who won a match on the clay in Estoril Monday in doubles, will try to transfer that to the singles court as he looks for a much needed victory against fellow Australian Sebastian Ofner, a qualifier.

Also on the Estoril is wild card Ben Shelton, who is the No. 8 seed and taking on his first clay-court campaign.

(Houston is one hour behind EDT; Marrakech is four hours ahead, and Estoril is five hours ahead).
