Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

The Barcelona tournament welcomed back Rafael Nadal, who won routinely Tuesday but had a thoroughly different customer Wednesday in Alex de Minaur.

Lots of other seeds in the house: Casper Ruud, Alex de Minaur, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Lorenzo Musetti and more as the second round wraps up.

In Munich, top seed and homey Alexander Zverev got under way, after a first-round bye. He had to wait through a long delay, but got it done.

But in Bucharest, Cana-Chilean Alejandro Tabilo, scheduled for double duty in singles and doubles, only got the singles done as the doubles was rained out. He’s in the quarterfinals, though.

(Barcelona and Munich are 6 hours ahead of EDT; Bucharest is 7 hours ahead).
