MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Thursday, March 3, 2022 final results

Dayana Yastremska, who escaped Ukraine not even a week ago, returns to the court to try to get to the Lyon quarterfinals.

And her countrywoman Elina Svitolina will do the same in Monterrey, with both having night session matches (although in different time zones).

After all the adrenaline that must been expended in winning their first rounds, let’s see if they have any left to carry on in the tournament.

Both played qualifiers. Both prevailed.

Meanwhile, the British team of Alicia Barnett, 28 (who barely breached the top 400 in the junior ranks a decade ago) and Olivia Nicholls, 27 and with no playing record in the ITF juniors at all) – in their first career WTA event together, overcame a 0-6, 0-4 deficit to win and make the doubles final. They have been grinding it out for years – so kudos to them for their persistence.
