MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Thursday, Feb. 1, 2024 final results

More quick turnarounds as No. 1 seed Jelena Ostapenko, who played the women’s doubles final in Melbourne on Sunday, is in action Thursday in Linz and barely pulled it out.

As well, Donna Vekic had a tough opener on paper as she faced Dayana Yastremska, who had a massive Australian Open in singles. It turned out to be quick and painless.

And China’s Wang Yafan, who also impressed in Melbourne, is looking for a quarterfinal berth in Hua Hin and made it.

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