MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024 final results

Ons Jabeur made her singles debut in Abu Dhabi, the first of three events in the Arab part of the world that will form such a part of her off-court marketing strategy.

Lots of stories already about her, including her new clothing sponsorship with a Saudi PIF-backed company, and her support of women’s tennis in the area in general.

Sakkari, Haddad Maia and Kasatkina also in action, with Sakkari going down in a hurry.

(Abu Dhabi is 9 hours ahead of EST; Cluj-Napoca is 7 hours)
