ATP Tour – Sunday, Aug. 22, 2021 final results

The big upset of Daniil Medvedev at the hands of Andrey Rublev Saturday sets up a fascinating final either way.

But it didn’t end up too dramatic as Alexander Zverev was all over Rublev.

But … HOLD THE PHONE!!!! Late wild card Andy Murray was to play his pal Nick Kyrgios in the first round of Winston-Salem Sunday evening.

Full house. And then Kyrgios pulled out at the 11th hour leaving Noah Rubin – who had just served for the match against Lucas Pouille and lost in the final round of qualifying, had to step in with an empty tank.
