And the results were mixed.
Andy Murray was beaten 6-1 1-6 6-4 by Lucas Pouille in the first round of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati yesterday.
Murray last played 11 days ago in a Citi Open third-round match, which took him three hours to win and ended at 3am. But this afternoon, opened and finished strong in his first career win over the Scot.
"I've played four three-set matches and a couple long ones in Washington, and although I didn't feel great, I managed to get through them", 2012 US Open victor Murray said via the Cincinnati Enquirer.
"I'm just going to continue to work hard, and hopefully I'll start winning more matches". "It's been good to me", Murray said. And Pouille hung on.
Omarosa allegedly has video, audio, texts to back up book claims
A source close to Manigault Newman revealed the existence of the "treasure trove" of materials to the AP. The president said Omarosa begged him for a job "with tears in her eyes".
"It was a really tough match", said Chung.
Williams looked rusty in the first set, struggling to handle the Czech's booming left-handed serve and never created a break-point opportunity. That adds a different twist to it. Feels nearly like I have had two careers, the one before and the one after. That's got to be the goal now after not having ideal, you know, situations the last couple of years there. I feel like he was a little bit sharper than me out there. "I maybe wasn't reacting as quickly to some shots I would have liked".
"The goal is now to recover from this match and take the positives".
The 20-time Grand Slam victor is the top seed following the withdrawal of Spaniard Rafael Nadal, who won the Rogers Cup in Toronto yesterday. "If I can improve by 10, 15 per cent, I turn a lot of those matches around".
Williams appeared to be in command when she broke Kvitova to start the deciding third set but the two-time Wimbledon champion elevated her service game and was defensively resolute to set up a third-round clash with Kristina Mladenovic.
