MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

The spring ATP clay-court season begins in earnest, with three tournament – a 500 in Barcelona, and 250s in Banja Luka, Bosnia (relocated from Belgrade this year) and Munich.

We’ll see if Monte Carlo champion Andrey Rublev and finalist Holger Rune make their dates. But Denis Shapovalov is back, making his clay start as the No. 14 seed in Barcelona.

(Barcelona, Munich and Banja Luka are six hours ahead of EDT).
