MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

A lot of doubling up in Bucharest, although the weather looks much better the next three days. Still, it was a lot of tennis for a lot of people.

In Munich, six of the eight seeds made it to the final – including Canadian Félix Auger-Aliassime, at No. 5.

He faced No. 4 Jan-Lennard Struff, but down a set and 3-1, they were suspended for darkness.

In Barcelona, plenty of upsets, with Monte Carlo finalists Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas the only top-five seeds remaining out of the original 16. Tsitsipa barely got through.

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