WTA Tour – Friday, Aug. 20, 2021 final results

Ashleigh Barty vs Barbora Krejcikova is a battle of the last two Grand Slam champions – in the quarterfinals of a WTA 1000.

That’s pretty high level. Even if in the end, it was no contest.

As well, Canadian Gabriela Dabrowski and new partner Luisa Stefani continue their big summer run as they aim for the Cincinnati finals. And they make with a big win over the Olympic gold medalists.
