Kyle Edmund was runner-up in Marrakech last year.

Marrakech

ATP 250

Kyle Edmund is in action in Marrackech where he was runner up last year to Pablo Andujar who is back to defend his title. Alexander Zverev is the top seed.

Jamie Murray partners John Peers and they are top seeds, ahead of Dominic Inglot and Rohan Bopanna.

The tournament is on Tennis TV only with 24 matches covered although Edmund’s matches there last year were available for free on Facebook, so we’ll see if that’s the case again in 2019.


Lugano

WTA International, BT Sport

The WTA visits Lugano for a second year.

Top seed is Belinda Bencic; the title holder Elise Mertens is not playing this week.

Coverage is on BT Sport throughout the week but is expected to be disrupted by the weather just like last year.
