Rybakina returns, Humbert delivers and what is Holger Rune doing?

Catherine, David and Matt start with an eventful week in Abu Dhabi which saw Elena Rybakina lift her second trophy of the season, Daria Kasatkina impress, and injury concern for Ons Jabeur. 

Elsewhere there’s chat about Karolina Pliskova’s first title in four years, Ugo Humbert delivering on his immense talent by winning in Marseille, Tommy Paul’s title run in Dallas, and an all-qualifier final in Cordoba. 

There’s also a disqualification in UTS, coaching news for Holger Rune and Jessica Pegula, and a look ahead to this week as the tennis keeps coming.
