MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Kyrgios

The second installment of Comeback Week on the Grass gets under way Tuesday.

On Monday, it was the return of Milos Raonic.

Tuesday, it was the return of Nick Kyrgios.

(There was also the return of Venus Williams on the women’s side).

The latter two did not work out.

Canadian Denis Shapovalov made his grass-court debut against qualifier Marton Fucsovics. So no picnic as an opener, and indeed Fucsovics prevailed.

(‘s-Hertogenbosch and Stuttgart are six hours ahead of EDT).
