Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

No. 1 seed Carlos Alcaraz got past Alex de Minaur in his first career grass-court final, in his third grass court event. He gets the No. 1 spot back on Monday.

In Halle, an intriguing battle between Alexander Bublik and Andrey Rublev, two players who, somewhat surprisingly, have their best results on grass without really being stereotypical “grass-court players” ended up a big win for Bublik.

In Mallorca, the first round of the main draw singles is already getting under way, with a projected Saturday final because of travel.

(Halle and Mallorca are six hours ahead of EDT; Queen’s Club is five hours ahead).
