Defending champion Carlos Alcaraz faces a tough draw at the Cinch Championships, his first tournament since winning the Roland Garros title.

The No. 2 player in the PIF ATP Rankings will open his grass-court season against a Top 30 opponent in Argentine Francisco Cerundolo. They played in 2019 at an ITF World Tennis Tour event in Palmanova, Spain, when Alcaraz was 15, and Cerundolo triumphed 6-2, 6-4.

Should Alcaraz advance, his path will not get easier. The Spaniard would face Jack Draper, who could claim his first ATP Tour title Sunday in Stuttgart, or 2024 breakthrough star...

The Americans won three Match Tie-breaks to reach the championship match and battled through two tie-breaks to capture the crown.

“It was a hard-fought match all the way through. [It was] very typical grass-court tennis, serve games held the whole way,” Lammons said. “Happy to come up with some clutch shots, clutch moments there in both busters. It feels good to start the grass...

Matteo Berrettini is back in a big way.

In his first tournament since Monte-Carlo in April, the former No. 6 player in the PIF ATP Rankings is into the Stuttgart final. The Italian defeated countryman Lorenzo Musetti 6-4, 6-0 Saturday to reach the championship match of the BOSS OPEN.

“When you win like this, it's better,” Berrettini said of his 66-minute victory. “You just burn less energy. I think I played enough during the week. So today, it was really good to play an hour and six minutes.”

Alex de Minaur continues to climb to new heights.

The Australian defeated big-serving lefty Ugo Humbert 7-6(4), 6-3 on Saturday to reach the final of the Libema Open. By doing so, he is guaranteed to reach a career-high No. 8 in the PIF ATP Rankings on Monday.

“It was an interesting one that's for sure. I got off to a very good start playing some great tennis and then I maybe lost focus a little bit,” De Minaur said. “Ugo is an incredible competitor, he always fights 'til the end, so he made it very tricky. I was able to just sneak that first set and then happy with the break at the end and happy to be here. Happy it didn't rain and onto the final.”

The top seed lost five consecutive games to his French opponent from 4-0 up in...

Jack Draper continued to impress on the lawns in Stuttgart on Friday when he clawed past last year’s champion Frances Tiafoe 5-7, 6-4, 7-6(1) to reach the semi-finals at the BOSS OPEN.

The lefty, who is up seven spots to No. 33 in the PIF ATP Live Rankings, produced an explosive display on serve at the ATP 250 event. Draper fired 31 aces, according to Infosys ATP Stats, and backed up pinpoint deliveries with fierce groundstrokes to advance to his sixth tour-level semi-final after two hours and 13 minutes.

"I am incredibly happy," Draper said. "My last three tie-breaks in the third set I have lost them all, so to come through today is amazing and I am really proud of my level. I am really happy with how I served and it was a really high-quality...

The first tournament that participated in the 2024 ATP Doubles Trial was the Mutua Madrid Open. Now, the Cinch Championships at Queen’s Club will trial a set of changes — with some new tweaks — during next week’s ATP 500 event.

By trialing more changes, the ATP continues to innovate, with foci including in-match time reduction and creating an elevated on-site fan experience.

Changes at Queen’s Club will include less time between points, adjustments to time allowances during changeovers, the use of “time extensions” and more.

Tournament director Jamie Murray, the former No. 1 player in the PIF ATP Doubles Rankings, said: “I'm excited to see the ATP continue to try to test ways to figure out things to try to improve the doubles...

Jannik Sinner enters the 2024 grass-court season atop the PIF ATP Rankings for the first time. After winning his first Grand Slam title and debuting at World No. 1 last Monday, can he add his maiden grass-court title to his incredible calendar year?

The 22-year-old owns a 12-8 record on the surface, with his best result a Wimbledon semi-final run last season. He will begin his 2024 grass campaign at the Terra Wortmann Open in Halle, where he reached the quarter-finals last season in his tournament main-draw debut before retiring with an adductor muscle injury.

Five years ago, Sinner first played the ATP 500 event in the 2019 qualifying draw at the age of 17. While he did not pick up a win in the play-in tournament, he gained an invaluable...
