MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Not quite clay, but Har-Tru in Charleston, a great tournament that might not be getting the fields it once did in its “heyday”, but still offers a ton of interesting matchups in the draw.

Caroline Wozniacki is in the house, and Amanda Anisimova returns after having missed the Sunshine Double.

In Bogotá, young Canadian Marina Stakusic got more beginner’s luck as her opponent in the final round of qualifying retired after the first set.

She will play No. 6 seed and “local” Camila Osorio in the first round.

(Charleston is on EDT; Bogota is one hour behind)
