MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

After some smaller events last week during Roland Garros, the grass-court season began in earnest with WTA 250s at ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Nottingham.

Bianca Andreescu, in on a wild card, is in the Netherlands but was rained out Monday.

Rebecca Marino is in the U.K. at Nottingham, having come through qualifying. She, too, was postponed to Tuesday.

Karolina Pliskova vs Alycia Parks in Nottingham was a … hard-hitting affair. But another loss for Parks.

(‘s-Hertogenbosch is 6 hours ahead of EDT; Nottingham is 5 hours)
