Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2024 final results

All the … experience (😁) you can ask for on the stadium court in Doha on Tuesday.

There is Gaël Monfils. And there is Richard Gasquet. And there is Andy Murray.

Murray might have the most winnable match as he faces qualifier Alexandre Muller. But nothing is coming easy to the Scot these days.

Gasquet (who reached the final of a Challenger last week) and Monfils are both in on wild cards.

Who’s the eldest? Can you answer without cheating? (Meanwhile, they all won).

In Rio, without a first-round bye because of the full 32 draw, Carlos Alcaraz looks to defend his ATP 500 finals points from last year with an opener against sturdy Brazilian lefty Thiago Monteiro.

(Doha is 8 hours ahead of ET, Rio is two hours ahead and Los Cabos two hours behind)
