U.S. Men’s Clay Action Begins Monday

Kicking things off Monday at noon on Stadium Court will be a doubles match featuring American Nicolas Monroe. Odds are that he will be revved up in anticipation of watching Monday night’s National Championship game at NRG Stadium. Monroe played tennis for four years at North Carolina.
