Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

A few matches were cancelled because of rain in ‘s-Hertogenbosch on Monday.

That included Bianca Andreescu’s 2024 grass debut. And as a result, she was bumped by the Stadium court to … Court 5.

To be fair, the replacements were No. 1 seed Jessica Pegula and Naomi Osaka.

So fair enough. Except the weather isn’t expected to be much better on Tuesday although they got nearly everything in.

In Nottingham, they had No. 1 Jabeur, No. 2 Kostyuk (ousted) and … wild card Emma Raducanu on the sked as well as Rebecca Marino’s postponed match from Monday.

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