MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

CANCÚN, Mexico –  They had a suspended singles match (which determined a semifinalist) and a cancelled doubles match to make up, in addition to the regular schedule at the WTA Finals.

But Mother Nature may be even less kind to the tournament on Friday than it was on Thursday (which was not, very). So all to be discovered. They got … most of it done? Miracle.

In Midland, a rematch between Alycia Parks and Katherine Sebov that harkens back to their clash at a much smaller event in California a few years ago. But ended up being a different results.

It was an instant classic – though not necessarily for the right reasons!

(Cancún is an hour behind EDT; Midland is on EDT)
