Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

The Marseille final is somewhat of a surprise, as Borna Coric took a retirement by top seed Holger Rune into the final after basically being a ghost on Tour for quite awhile recently.

Coric did come in with a final in a Challenger in Belgium last week. But he didn’t play after losing in the first round of the US Open in 2023.

The ATP returns to full strength this week with three events: Marseille, Dallas and Cordoba outdoors on clay.

(Marseille is 6 hours ahead of EST, Cordoba two hours ahead, and Dallas an hour behind)
