No. 2 seed Putintseva and No. 3 Alison Riske – one of the rare non-Europeans on this circuit this week – headlined Wednesday in Portoroz.

Where, it should be noted, it looks absolutely gorgeous.

Also noteworthy – just a few days after a massive win in women’s doubles at the US Open with Samantha Stosur – Zhang Shuai was back on court in singles and doubles, indoors in Luxembourg.

She dropped the singles in three sets to Marie Bouzkova. But came back a short time later and advanced in doubles with India’s Sania Mirza.
