MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Both Bianca Andreescu and Leylah Fernandez are in action in Bad Homburg on Monday, hoping to get wins to get some momentum for Wimbledon.

It’s the first grass-court tournament for Fernandez, who was due to play last week but postponed her start.

Andreescu won her opener against a Turkish player ranked outside the top 200 in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. But she lost her second round. And she lost her opener in Berlin to Marketa Vondrousova.

Also – Gabriela Dabrowski has another partner in Eastbourne – Aussie Daria Saville, who is coming back from a long-term injury after ripping her ACL last fall in Japan.

At Wimbledon she is to play with Aleksandra Krunic, who also is coming back from a knee injury and will play for the first time since last October in the Wimbledon qualifying.

(Bad Homburg is six hours ahead of EDT; Eastbourne is five hours ahead).
