MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Friday, Feb. 10, 2023 final results

Six of the eight seeds remained to make the final eight in Abu Dhabi, which is pretty good considering the qualify of the field overall at the new WTA 500 tournament.

In Linz, four of the eight survived, but only one of the top four.

All four quarterfinals in Abu Dhabi looked like serious quality.

And look out for lucky loser Clara Tauson in Linz; she has missed a lot of time in the last year or more because of injury. Finally, it appears she’s back. And given a second chance, she made the most of it even though she eventual was taken down in the quarters.
