MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Sunday, Oct. 1, 2023 final results

Ningbo done, the finals in Tokyo went Sunday.

And Veronika Kudermetova – who was a scalp for lower-ranked players for much of the last few months, comes up and wins the WTA 500 title.

Beijing qualifying is done, and so round of 16 matches took place and already there are some upsets.

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