MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Friday, Feb. 2, 2024 final results

The top five seeds (the first four of whic had first-round byes) are all in Friday’s singles quarterfinals.

And in Hua Hin, at long last, 35-year-old Arina Rodionova breaks the top-100 barrier and is into the quarterfinals.

Rodionova, who stood at No. 105 the week of the Australian Open but wasn’t awarded a wild card by Tennis Australia (she lost early in qualifying), has been a pretty intrepid foot soldier all these years.

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