MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023 final results

CANCÚN, Mexico –  It was already pretty much survival time for Maria Sakkari, who got her butt handed to her by Aryna Sabalenka in her opener.

And, as she tries to get the train back on the track, ended up having to face … Elena Rybakina on Tuesday. It looked bad at first, she fought back – but still lost, and is already out of contention.

This is a tough tournament to win.

In Midland, Canadian Katherine Sebov gets into action and gets through.
