MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Wednesday, June 26, 2024 final results

Defending champion Madison Keys finally began her grass-court campaign, as she faced Anhelina Kalinina in the second round of Eastbourne and won.

Also on tap: Berlin champion Jessica Pegula – one of the rare players who went deep last week not to withdraw this week – had a fascinating opener against British It girl Emma Raducanu. That Pegula didn’t bail was already a win. That Raducanu ended up winning … well, it won’t quiet things down going into Wimbledon.

Canadian Leylah Fernandez booked a quarterfinal spot in surprisingly routine fashion against hard-hitting young American Ashlyn Krueger.

In Bad Homburg, the tournament is feeling the withdrawals as the biggest names are No. 3 seed Emma Navarro and No. 4 Beatriz Haddad Maia (who didn’t get to finish).

Plus Caroline Wozniacki. Who made quick work of Veronika Kudermetova.

(Bad Homburg is 6 hours ahead of EDT; Eastbourne is 5 hours ahead)
