WTA Tour – Sunday, Sept. 19, 2021 final results

A pair of No. 3 seeds – Jelena Ostapenko in Luxembourg, Alison Riske in Portoroz –went for titles today.

Neither came away with the trophy. Clara Tauson, who is slowly and steadily climbing up the rankings without the fanfare other junior Grand Slam champions (AO 2019, vs. Leylah Fernandez in the final) get, beat Ostapenko.

Riske lost to the Italian Jasmine Paolini, who is a little older but also on the rise.

This is the time of the season when these things are most likely to happen, and it keeps things lively.
