MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Monday, March 4, 2024 final results

The end of the first round of the women’s qualifying had one notable upset, although Alizé Cornet has definitely struggled to win matches so far in 2024.

But she was dismissed by young American Clervie Ngounoue in quick fashion.

And the No. 1 seed, Jaqueline Cristian was also dismissed – by doubles specialist Storm Hunter, who also is quite a handy singles player as well even if her ranking doesn’t necessarily reflect it.
