Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

A quiet day in Nanchang, where only No. 3 seed Marie Bouzkova and No. 8 Sara Sorribes Tormo were in action.

In Cluj-Napova, a fair few Romanians were still alive in both singles and doubles.

And in Monastir, an all-Italian matchup between Sara Errani and No. 6 seed Lucia Bronzetti led off the Wednesday action.

(Nanchang is 12 hours ahead of ET; Cluj-Napoca is seven hours ahead, and Monastir is five hours ahead).
