MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

No. 1 seed Daniil Medvedev, the only one of the top four to see action this week, enters Dubai and meets the potentially trick Alexander Shevchenko in the first round.

Also on tap is an all-French clash between Gaël Monfils and lefty Ugo Humbert.

Czech teen Jakub Mensik, who made the Doha final last week, is into Dubai as a special exempt and squares off against Borna Coric of Croatia.

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