MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Roma – Thursday, May 11, 2023 final results

ROME – With the seeds coming into play today, some really intriguing matches on the women’s side, as the second round begins.

You’re got Jessica Pegula against Taylor Townsend, who has played really well this week in getting through qualifying and her first round. And played even better in pulling off a huge upset.

There’s Azarenka-Stephens.

There’s Gauff-Putintseva (Okay, maybe not that one so much, as it turns out).

And then there was Kenin against Sabalenka – the Madrid champion. Off the radar for quite awhile now, but showing signs here and there of getting back to the top level, Kenin takes her in straight sets.

(Rome is six hours ahead of EDT).
