MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Monday, Oct. 2, 2023 final results

A busy day on the WTA side in Beijing, as US Open champion Coco Gauff was back in action, as the No. 3 seed.

With last week’s events done, the 1000 is the only game in town on the women’s side.

And fresh Asian Games gold medalist Zheng Qinwen – who also had to deal with her coach just dumping her and going back to Team Osaka just as she arrives in her native land for the first time as a *big deal* – got a tough opener in Elena Rybakina and wasn’t up to the task.

As usual, plenty of drama on the women’s side.

(Beijing is 12 hours ahead of ET).
