MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2023 final results

The weather crushed Hong Kong for the second straight day, which means that only the first round of qualifying (which was Saturday), has been completed there so far.

They’re hoping to get that done Tuesday, and added a few matches to those postponed – including No. 1 seed Victoria Azarenka against Canadian Leylah Fernandez.

And they did get through it all – with Fernandez getting a little luck with an injury to Azarenka.

Meanwhile, wild card No. 1 seed Jessica Pegula (whose mother is Korean) and No. 2 Jelena Ostapenko get going on Seoul.

(Zhengzhou and Hong Kong are 12 hours ahead of ET; Seoul is 13 hours ahead).
