Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Three of the top four seeds in Dallas made it to Saturday, the only exception being a rather shocking straight-set loss by Frances Tiafoe.

In Cordóba, they caught up from the rain and so all semifinals were played Saturday.

And in Marseille, the top four seeds have advanced to the semifinals. You can’t ask for more than that.

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