WTA Tour – Monday, Sept. 27, 2021 final results

The cancellation of the Asian swing for the second straight season because the pandemic has led to a couple of last-minute tournaments being put on.

It’s a plus, as it offers playing opportunities. And in the case of the Chicago 500, a quality tournament to play before the rescheduled Indian Wells event in two weeks.

And … Kim Clijsters is back. She gave Hsieh Su-Wei a tough time Monday in a singles loss, but is back for doubles Tuesday.
