MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Félix Auger-Aliassime, the No. 3 seed in D.C., finally made his debut after a first-round bye, to face Yosuke Watanuki of Japan. It didn’t go well; Auger-Aliassime’s struggles continue with another defeat, although he took the positive that he felt no pain in his knee.

Also in action was No. 1 seed Taylor Fritz, who just won the ATP 250 in Atlanta over the weekend. He got through

And a potential popcorn match between Gaël Monfils and No. 6 seed Alexander Bublik that ended up fairly one-sided on the Frenchman’s side.

In Los Cabos, lovebird Stefanos Tsitsipas entered the action, along with No. 3 seed Tommy Paul. All the seeds but Cameron Norrie advanced.

(Kitzbuhel is six hours ahead of EDT; Washington is on EDT; Los Cabos is three hours behind)
