Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

MELBOURNE, Australia – Disappointed in singles, teams like Haddad Maia & Townsend, and Garcia & Mladenovic will try to make a run in doubles.

And players who HAVE had good wins, like Marta Kostyuk and Adrian Mannarino, will be doing double-duty on their “days off”, in a sense.

The juniors also begin today. But there is only one Canadian, total, in the boys and girls’s draws.
