MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

A couple of players who made some noise the last two weeks in Madrid are back at square one, in the qualifying in Rome.

Notably, that includes Daniel Altmaier, and Zhang Zhizhen. The former made it through, the latter dropped a tough three-setters.

Tennis is a pretty unforgiving sport.

Then again, 10 of the 24 matches (and one injury retirement by Nikoloz Basilashvili) were upsets on the day. Nearly half.

(Rome is six hours ahead of EDT).
