MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

A bit of a mix, with the only one of the three tournaments this week to have a Sunday final in Rio (Los Cabos and Doha are wrapped up), along with the qualifying at all three tournaments this week: Dubai, Acapulco and Santiago.

It’s a busy time on the ATP Tour because after this week, come the back-to-back Masters 1000s in Indian Wells and Miami.

(Dubai is 9 hours ahead of ET, Rio and Santiago two hours ahead, Acapulco one hour behind).
