MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2024 final results

A lot of American content in Texas as Sloane Stephens, Danielle Collins and Peyton Stearns got the Stadium, while Alycia Parks and Taylor Townsend are on the Grandstand in a pretty busy day at the office.

Rebecca Marino, who got through qualifying, took on fellow qualifier Sachia Vickery but did not have a good day at the office.

In San Diego, a number of players, including Leylah Fernandez, were in action. Fernandez faced a throwback challenge against Tatjana Maria. But after a lengthy first set, her left shoulder said ‘No más’.

Shame for her, and for purists who were digging all the slicing and dicing.

(San Diego is 3 hours behind ET; Austin is one hour behind)
