WTA Tour – Friday, Oct. 1, 2021 final results

Semi-final day in Nur-Sultan, where home-country top seed Yulia Putintseva is looking good to take the title. But there’s some work to be done.

In Chicago, qualifier Mai Hontama – about as obscure as they come at a 500 – benefited from a walkover from Anett Kontaveit in the second round. And on Thursday, she benefited (perhaps) from a little “just beat a Grand Slam champion” hangover from Shelby Rogers.

By the time she got to Garbiñe Muguruza on Friday, she was a little out of gas. Still, the 6-3, 6-2 score doesn’t accurately reflect how much of a fight she put up.
