WTA Tour – Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2021 final results

Seven of the eight seeds survived the first round and live to play on, as the Astana Open in Nur-Sultan continues.

As well, Canadian Bianca Andreescu made her first appearance since the US Open, as the No. 8 seed in Chicago. She met Shelby Rogers. And the player who is (all things considered) having the better season won.
That wasn’t Andreescu.

Andreescu, No. 1 Elina Svitolina and No. 4 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova – all with first-round byes – were up against it with tough opponents in their openers. Only Svitolina lived to play another day.
