MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

The singles and doubles finals in Rome went Sunday.

And Alexander Zverev won Rome – his first big title. And now, his first since that gruesome ankle injury two years ago in Paris.

But also Sunday, the main draws began both in Lyon and Geneva.

Just a smidgen, though, as the qualifying wraps up, and the bigger names jump on board later in the week because of the four first-round byes.

(Rome, Geneva and Lyon are 6 hours ahead of EDT)
