It’s quarterfinal day for the women. And while there are some surprises, it’s not a shock to see Belinda Bencic in the final eight, the way she’s been playing in Tokyo.

If she was disappointed at not getting to play mixed doubles with Roger Federer, she has more than poured that into both singles and doubles.

As well on Wednesday, the mixed doubles begins with Canada having one last chance to stay in the Olympic tennis competition. Unfortunately, it was not to be.
