MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The catchup from Thursday’s rain was complete, but some of the semifinalists will be tired fellas on Saturday for the semis. That might have affected No. 1 seed Taylor Fritz, added onto his long and successful week in Atlanta the previous week.

In Kitzbuhel, Dominic Thiem was into his first final in years. But it seemed that the journey to get there left him rather short on energy for the final.

In Los Cabos, the tennis was … late. As usual.

And in Toronto, five Canadians were vying for main draw spots at the qualifying begins. Only one got through.

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