No. 1 Hurkacz and No. 2 Dimitrov enter in Marseille. and Both go through.

In Dallas, No. 1 Tiafoe and No. 4 Mannarino do the same.

The 28-player draws at ATP 250 events mean the top guns often wait until Thursday to play.

Also in Marseille, Canadian Félix Auger-Aliassime lookws for a win over the exciting Chinese player Zhang Zhizhen to make his second consecutive quarterfinal. It didn’t go his way.

Cordoba’s sked was severely curtailed because of rain, as they look to catch up on Friday.
