MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Wednesday, March 6, 2024 final results

No seeds in action on the first day of main-draw play on the women’s side.

But plenty of marquee names – an irony that isn’t lost on most people.

Grand Slam champion and former No. 1 Angelique Kerber, Grand Slam champion and former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki and … Grand Sland champion and former No. 1 Venus Williams were in action.

Or were supposed to be.

Only Kerber, first up at 11 a.m., got through. Wozniacki got through a set. Venus barely got started.

They’ll all have to come back on Thursday.

(Indian Wells is 3 hours behind ET)
