Saturday/ midnight in Miami 🌴

It’s midnight in Miami, and there is still action on the tennis court at the 2024 Miami Open.

As I write this, Gaël Monfils (37, 🇫🇷 ) had just taken the second set, playing against Jordan Thompson (29, 🇦🇺) in the second round of the 2024 Miami Open. So they have to play a deciding set.
P.S. There are no bleary-eyed line judges. All line calls are by an electronic line-calling (ELC) system. These systems use a combination of cameras, computers, algorithms, and microphones to track and calculate the trajectory of the ball, and determine if it landed in or out of bounds.
The winner of this match will take on Carlos Alcaraz (20, 🇪🇸) in round three.
Update 3/24: Monfils won 7-6 6-1 6-2 and will play against Alcaraz on Monday.
