MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Monday, Sept. 25, 2023 final results

The longstanding WTA tournament in Tokyo – first edition was 50 years ago – has a solid field (although three Czechs – Vondrousova, Krejcikova and Muchova – were originally entered but didn’t make the date) and marks the return to action of Iga Swiatek.

It waa pretty quiet Monday, though, in terms of the OOP.

In Ningbo, which is holding a WTA event for the first time since … 2014 when it was a 125 tournament and a very young Magda Linette won it, No. 2 seed Petra Kvitova highlighted the first day of action.

(Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of ET; Ningbo is 12 hours ahead).
