MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2024 final results

The first round of singles wraps up and the second round beging at the WTA 500 in Linz and the 250 in Hua Hin, Thailand.

Looking at Paula Badosa as she continues her comeback. And wild card Dayana Yastremska, who played SO much tennis during the Australian Open, meets Erika Andreeva after a first-round bye.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who pulled out of the doubles in Melbourne after losing in singles, is back and playing Katie Boulter in Linz.

And Zheng Saisai, who returned this week after some 15 months away, didn’t get far. She lost her first-round singles qualifying match, 6-3, 7-5, to Tikhonova. But she has withdrawn from the doubles with a wrist injury. Tough.

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