MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Three of the top four seeds made it to the ‘s-Hertogenbosch quarterfinals – all three of them, as it happens, are Russians.

There have been some issues with the Russians getting their visas approved to get into the U.K.

Which likely is a big reason they all opted to play in the Netherlands vs. in Great Britain, at Nottingham.

In Nottingham, not a single seed left. But three of the four who made it to the semifinals are Brits. So there’s that.

(Birmingham is five hours ahead of EDT; ‘s-Hertogenbosch is six hours ahead)
