MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Monday, May 20, 2024 final results

A few opening matches failed to finish on Sunday because of weather.

So had to make those up on Monday in Strasbourg where Samsonova v Krejcikova was a first-round match, and a lengthy one, with Samsonova (the No. 5 seed) prevailing to take on Leylah Fernandez on Tuesday.

It’s a tough field; Emma Navarro, Sloane Stephens and Krejcikova are all unseeded this week.

And in Paris, the Roland Garros qualifying begins.

(Strasbourg is 6 hours ahead of EDT; Rabat is 5 hours)
