MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Friday, March 1, 2024 final results

Four seeds into the singles quarterfinals in Austin, where No. 3 Danielle Collins (who overcame some back issues in her match Thursday) faced No. 6 seed Wang Xiyu and had to retire after the first set.

The San Diego singles quarters have some appealing players remaining – Donna Vekic, Katie Boulter, Daria Saville, Jessica Pegula and Marta Kostyuk among them.

The tournament, despite being a 500, was hurt by some player withdrawals and a fairly pedestrian quality of field.

But you can’t complain about the tennis. It’s been quality.

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