Gaby last tournament of the season, will try to make the cut off for AO Q.
She is supposed to play $25K Tucson the following week also.
If she intented to secure the AO qualifying she should have played those $25K in Florida on clay instead of going to hardcourts.

I thought maybe after reading their website they were going to have a legit 2-match night session each night, but it looks like, at least on Monday, it's just a single match on Court 1 that has a "not before 5 PM" start. I wouldn't call that a night session, but that is still approximately 2 more hours of tennis than they scheduled any day last year if I'm not mistaken.

I really don't think there's a need to have a night session, although the latest match I saw last year was at night with Nicole Gibbs and I think that got started after 6 pm.
There's not really that big of a draw and most of the fans leave before 4 pm to beat the traffic as most folks in Houston live in the suburbs.

With the rain delay going on right now that might push some matches back, but there's plenty of courts to push players onto rather than have them stay later in the day or night.

Kayla Day career high of 122, what went wrong?

Simply not good enough?

Remember watching a AO qualifier and not really being impressed.

Oh Osuigwe, what in the world is going on? After the clay season, she was on the verge of flying into the Top 100.... but now?! Just a terrible second half of the year. And what’s with the 16 UE?!

It's now 7°C (45°F) and raining in Houston. Can they move indoors? Even if the rain stops, conditions will be horrible.

Falconi into the SF here.... wondering if she still has ambitions to be #1, or if that ship has sailed. I know she had some injury issues, but her confidence in her abilities always seemed to exceed her actual level.

Not that I needed another reason to like Falconi, but she greatly exceeded my expectations in this tournament. What a badass.
