MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Thursday, Jan. 4, 2024 final results

SYDNEY, Australia – Andrey Rublev finally makes his 2024 debut in singles Thursday in Hong Kong, along with No. 4 seed Francisco Cerundolo.

In Brisbane, Rafael Nadal will attempt to back up an impressure return win over Dominic Thiem with a second-round match against the lower-level Aussie Jason Kubler.

Nadal looked tremendous against Thiem; but this is a new day and Kubler will have his fair share of support.

In United Cup – only one tie, a quarterfinal round between France and Norway.

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