MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Friday, Jan. 6, 2023 final results

ADELAIDE, Australia – A couple of casualties in Auckland saw Venus Williams blow a 5-3 lead in the third set of a rain-delayed, outdoor-to-indoor match against Zhu Lin, and a tearful Emma Raducanu retire after two sets against Viktoria Kuzmova.

But that left Leylah Fernandez, the No. 3 seed, in a nice spot. She had two qualifiers and Karolina Muchova remaining in her half of the draw; she goit qualifier Ysaline Bonaventure (who defeated her friend and countrywoman Rebecca Marino Thursday) in Friday’s quarterfinals. And she lost in two sets.

As a consolation prize, she’s in the doubles final with Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

In Adelaide, the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds are still alive.

(Adelaide is 15 1/2 hours ahead of Eastern time; Auckland is 18 hours ahead).
