Take a deep breath because we have four events this week, two ATP World Tour 250s and two WTA International-level events. It's a nice, palate-cleansing interlude before Fed Cup semifinals next week (April 22-23) and after the Davis Cup quarterfinals.
The serious European clay-court season that leads into the French Open is almost upon us.
Here's what we're watching for this week:
Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men's Clay Court championships, Houston, Texas (outdoor clay)
Storylines: The top four seeds are, essentially, the U.S. Davis Cup team. They are committed to play, but they're coming off last week's 3-2 loss in Australia. Sock, who played two singles matches and a doubles match, might be a tad weary.
Of note: Tommy Haas, 39, has a protected ranking -- he's No. 825 among ATP players, but a dangerous floater here. Ernesto Escobedo, 20, is into the top 100 (No. 95) after qualifying and winning a match at Miami.
Grand Prix Hassan II, Marrakech, Morocco (outdoor clay)
Storylines: Similarly, how many of those playing Davis Cup last week will actually get to the line -- and play well? Ramos-Vinolas, Lorenzi and Paire are all scheduled to be in the field. Dimitrov, a late entry, would seem to have the measure of this draw.
Of note: Tommy Robredo, 34, is at No. 386 and also has a protected ranking.
Claro Open Colsanitas, Bogota, Colombia (outdoor clay)
Storylines: Arruabarrena bears watching here. A week ago, she knocked off Charleston No. 1 seed Madison Keys.
Of note: Bertens, the top seed, was a semifinalist at last year's French Open but is 4-9 this season.
Ladies Open Biel Bienne, Biel, Switzerland (indoor hard)
Storylines: Belinda Bencic, the year-end No. 14 in 2015, is No. 130 at the moment. The 20-year-old Swiss player has fought through injuries. She played an ITF event last week, losing in the quarterfinals.
