MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA – Thursday, June 22, 2023 final results

Venus Williams did have a day off to recover, after her marathon win over Camila Giorgi in the first round in Birmingham.

Her opponent Thursday, Jelena Ostapenko, is not a dissimilar type of player and so the positive was that the 43-year-old can expect there not to be too many rallies. But although Ostapenko faltered closing it out in the second, she came through in the end.

Also in action was Canadian Rebecca Marino, a lucky loser who got a qualifier in the first round, and got another one in Emina Bektas for a shot at the quarterfinals. She left it until the 11th hour, but she got through.

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