MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Thursday, May 23, 2024 final results

Five of the eight seeds made it to quarterfinal day in Strasbourg, which is great for the tournament as it includes the top four.

And after upsetting the No. 1 seeds in their opener, Cana-Kiwis Leylah Fernandez and Erin Routliffe were looking at a less-daunting task in the quarterfinals.

Until the rain.

In Rabat, notable that American Peyton Stearns trailed Lucia Bronzetti 5-0, 40-30 in the third set. And came back and won.

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