Competitors wait to be called for their matches in small, separated spaces. 

The new normal: masks for everyone. The event's top attraction, Dustin Brown, makes his way to the court. 

Thanks to the technology of PlaySight, remote cameras capture, and transmit, the action live to broadcasters like Tennis Channel International.

The court is as clean as it gets, with just a chair umpire overseeing the matches, which are played in a first to four games, best-of-three set format.

Fans are not present, though players, like Florian Broska, and those putting on the event can watch behind the glass.
