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

A lot going on in women’s tennis on this Sunday – notably world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty trying to take the Cincinnati title against unseeded Jil Teichmann.

Which she did, routinely.

But two new WTA events also begin their main draw action, because of the US Open coming up right behind this week.

So in Cleveland, there’s a new tournament. And in Chicago, there are two – the singles final of the 125K event that’s been going on all week. And also the start of the main draw of the new 250 tournament.

That event is using the license that belongs to the now-defunct Quebec City WTA event, which was much beloved in its day but fell victim to scheduling woes and other issues.

There are two Canadians in action in the Chicago 250 main draw: Françoise Abanda and Katherine Sebov. Abanda posted a solid win over Danka Kovinic of Montenegro.
