Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Rotterdam organizers will be happy at the turn of events this week – not only to do they have the reigning Australian Open champion and the super-popular Grigor Dimitrov, they also have one Dutchman in the singles semis (Griekspoor) AND three in the doubles semifinals.

In the end, an all-Dutch wild card doubles team is in Sunday’s final.

In Buenos Aires, Carlos Alcaraz is still rolling.

And in Delray, an all-American semifinal lineup.

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