This thread will cover the upcoming two weeks.
ATP has Estoril and Munich this week, then will start Madrid later this week.
For the ladies, WTA Madrid is an almost two week event.
Bianca Andreescu will be there. Serena Williams won't (Tiriac said mean things about her and also sold the event), but other than most of the top players will be there, yes even Naomi Osaka!
Blue clay will not return this year either :(

Paula was super unlucky with the draw. I am concerned about her fitness though. Been playing so much and has had treatment for something in every tournament I've seen her lately. Could do with an early flop in Rome and a nice rest before Paris imo.

Whether you have to take a MTO or not entirely depends on how long the treatment takes. I didn't pay attention on whether it was done quickly enough to complete treatment during the changeover. If it was, there was no need to announce/take a MTO.
Report SamuelMertensBertens May 7, 2022 6:27 PM BST
iirc my example was when the doctor came out and gave a player a pill. That was super quick but still counted as an MTO.
