MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Tuesday, March 5, 2024 final results

Nao Hibino, who will get a lot of balls in play, is the first-round opponent for Venus Williams as the qualifying is complete at the BNP Paribas Open.

For Naomi Osaka, an epic and incongruous matchup against Sara Errani, who is at the polar opposite of the Haitian-Japanese-American in every conceivable way.

Wild card Emma Raducanu gets another qualifier, the big-hitting Spaniard Rebeka Masarova.

(Indian Wells is 3 hours behind ET)
