MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2024 final results

There doesn’t seem to be a huge different in level between the WTA 250 in Thailand and the WTA 500 in Linz.

Except that Linz does have one of the returning Grand Slam champions, Angelique Kerber.

This feels like a week on the calendar that will offer great opportunities to unexpected players to bag a title.

(Linz is 6 hours ahead of EST; Hua Hin is 12 hours)
