MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

MELBOURNE, Australia – Quietly building to the finish, the ageless Rohan Bopanna is into the men’s doubles semifinals.

He turns 44 in a month. Is arguably playing the best double of his life.

The other touchstone is the first doubles match featuring Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova on opposite sides of the net for the first time since … well, ages.
