MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024 final results

As with the women in Dubai (although with one fewer round), the men were at the quarterfinal stage of both singles and doubles in Doha on Thursday.

All four top seeds have made the date, although their opponents were far from pushovers. And only one made it through, on a retirement.

In Los Cabos, by contrast, three of the four top seeds made it to the semifinals.

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