MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Miami – Saturday, March 23, 2024 final results

As with the men, there was some catching up to do on Saturday after Friday’s weather.

Although not quite as much; they managed to get a few more matches completed.

Leylah Fernandez was one of those who was rained out; she wasfirst up on Butch Buchholz Court vs. qualifier Emiliana Arango and despite some anxious moments, prevailed.

But look at the seeds that were lost. And, the thing of it is that not many – if any – of those upsets were shockers.
