MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

No. 1 Novak Djokovic was in action in Banja Luka, along with No. 2 Andrey Rublev. But Djokovic went down to his countryman.

No. 1 seed Holger Rune in Munich prevailed without much trouble.

And eight seeds filled up all eight slots in the Barcelona quarterfinals.

In Munich, Dominic Thiem had come back in his second-round match, if he wanted to play in the quarterfinals. He did, but fell to Taylor Fritz in the quarterfinals.

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