MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Monday, Jan. 1, 2024 final results

BRISBANE, Aus. – The fellas gotbetter slots on the stadium Monday (even though it’s a lower-tier tournament than the WTA).

But they put out the big guns – No. 1 seed Holger Rune, No. 2 Grigor Dimitrov (against Andy Murray) and No. 3 Ben Shelton.

At least those matches managed to get through, because with all the rain they were the only ones that did.

(Perth and Hong Kong are 13 hours ahead of EST; Brisbane is 15 hours ahead and Sydney is 16 hours ahead).
