MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Wednesday, May 24, 2023 final results

After getting past a lucky loser Tuesday, Canadian Leylah Fernandez looked to get past the hard-hitting American Peyton Stearns Wednesday in Rabat, Morocco.

She couldn’t get there, losing in three sets in her final tuneup before Roland Garros.

In Strasbourg, singles Cinderella story Erin Routliffe was to come up against a former top five player in Elina Svitolina.

But in the end, she couldn’t make the starting line and gave Svitolina a walkover.

Rabat is five hours ahead of EDT; Strasbourg is six hours ahead.
