MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Roma – Sunday, May 14, 2023 final results

ROME – Novak Djokovic dropped the first set, but got through again.

He’s not playing his best – how could he, given how little he has played? – and he has some niggles. But champions get through most of the time anyway. And he has.

Of all the third-round matches, Djokovic was the only seeded player who met another seed (No. 26 Dimitrov)

Taylor Fritz is a bit of a shocker upset, as is No. 32 seed Jiri Lehecka. As was No. 21 seed Roberto Bautista Agut.

But Frances Tiafoe keeps rolling – in doubles and singles.

(Rome is six hours ahead of EDT).
