ATP Tour – Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021 final results

Jannik Sinner faced a less-accomplished but currently extremely dangerous fellow 19-year-old in the Citi Open semifinals, and took him down.

And in Toronto, the National Bank Open (née the Rogers Cup) is back after two years, as the qualifying begins with Draxl, Polansky, Schnur and Diez in the lineup.

Polansky and Schnur posted upset wins over very good players that will do them a world of good.
