Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

A busy lineup in Rotterdam on Tuesday, pointing out how difficult it is to play tournaments at indoor events tht most often only have two match courts.

Five singles (and competitive ones) on the main court; six matches in all – two singles and four doubles, on the secondary court.

No Canadians in the lineup there, but Chilean-Canadian Alejandro Tabilo was in action in Buenos Aires and prevailed.

(Rotterdam is 6 hours ahead of ET, Buenos Aires two hours ahead, and Delray right on ET)
