MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2023 final results

Maria Sakkari vs. Zheng Qinwen was the marquee matchup Wednesday night in Zhengzhou, which might be renamed ZhengQinwen if its namesake manages to win the tournament. Her win over the Greek star was a good start in that direction.

In Hong Kong, No. 2 seed Beatriz Haddad Maia swung into action and stuggled through, as the schedule is a little backed up with the qualifying finishing only on Tuesday.

In Seoul, No. 3 seed Ekaterina Alexandrova was the top name in action. But she’s out.

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