WTA Tour – Monday, Sept. 20, 2021 results

Ostrava

The second edition of the Ostrava tournament – which stepped into the breach admirably a year ago in October when the WTA’s entire Asian swing had to be scrapped – begins.

The cast of characters looks significantly different from a year ago. And late withdrawals from home Czechs Karolina Pliskova, Barbora Krejcikova and Karolina Muchova definitely not helpful.

In Columbus, at a 125K there, Rebecca Marino hung tough, but went down to Brit Harriet Dart.
