MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023 final results

ADELAIDE, Australia – The Fruhvirtova sisters didn’t exactly get draw luck in Auckland this week.

Older sister Linda gets … 2021 US Open champion Emma Raducanu.

They won’t forget this tournament for awhile.

In Adelaide, a big load of goodies.
