MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA – Wednesday, June 21, 2023 results

An earlier start in Birmingham, to make up for a number of the matches they couldn’t get in Tuesday because of the late start.

That included Canadian Rebecca Marino, who played qualifier Wang Xiyu and gutted out a tough three setter.

Same situation for Bianca Andreescu, who was to take on Marketa Vondrousova at the end of the day Tuesday. Instead, they were first up on Wednesday and it … didn’t go well.

(Berlin is six hours ahead of EDT; Birmingham is five hours ahead).
