WTA Tour – Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2021 final results

An absolutely off-the-charts order of play graces Mason, Ohio on Wednesday with Osaka-Gauff and Jabeur-Swiatek just a couple of the appetizers.

Ashleigh Barty swings into action. And Bianca Andreescu faces a tough one in the multi-talented Karolina Muchova.

And that’s just a small portion of it. Fire.
