MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Saturday, March 9, 2024 final results

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. – Three Canadians in action on Saturday in the desert.

There was Milos Raonic, Montenegran born and Canada raised. There’s Denis Shapovalov – Israel born of Ukrainian and Russian parents, and Canada raised.

And there is also Alejandro Tabilo, Toronto born of Chilean parents, and now representing Chile.

If you want Canada in a nutshell, that’s pretty much it right there.

Unfortunately, none are left after the day.

In addition to that, Novak Djokovic took the court at Indian Wells for the first time in five years. It was touch and go at times, but he got through.

And Daniil Medvedev also gets his tournament under way, with a relatively routine win.

(Indian Wells is three hours behind ET)
