MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

The Iasi final in Romania will be … all-Romania in singles, with one double finals team also an all-Romanian team.

It’s what you hope for when your top two singles seeds and top doubles seeds are local. But it doesn’t happen that often.

In Palermo, there was an Italian singles finalist and an Italian doubles finalist team. Neither won, but that worked out well.

The main draw in Hamburg also began, with the qualifying wrapping up. The site isn’t necessarily built to welcome a joint event, so the women are starting a day earlier.

(Palermo and Budapest six hours ahead of EDT; Iasi is seven hours ahead)
