MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Finally, on Thursday, awaited No. 1 seed Carlos Alcaraz makes his 2024 debut in Buenos Aires (along with No. 2 seed Cameron Norrie).

A year ago, Alcaraz was injured in the offseason and missed the Australian swing completely, starting his season on the South American play.

Needless to say, he has a few points to defend.

In Rotterdam, there’s Sinner v Monfils and a few other tasty potential matchups.

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