Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Late night in Rotterdam – but conveniently afternoon back home – Milos Raonic got an opportunity to play the recently crowned Australian Open champion for a spot in the Rotterdam semifinals.

Sinner didn’t look great in his match Wednesday – although, in context, it was his first match since holding up the trophy in Melbourne. Unfortunately for Raonic, his body let him down again.

Elsewhere, Sinner’s amigo Carlos Alcaraz played qualifier Andrea Vavassori in Buenos Aires and after a tough first set, rolled.

In Delray Beach, everybody’s All-American.

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