MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Indian Wells – Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021 final results

Finally, Canadian Bianca Andreescu gets to take the court in defence of her Indian Wells title.

That the title came … all the way back in 2019, some 2 1/2 years ago, is as crazy as it is a sign of the times.

She faces Alison Riske, who breezed through her first-round match.

Meanwhile, the schedulers are doing most of Canada no favours at all – both Andreescu and Leylah Fernandez (in doubles with Coco Gauff) won’t start before … 11 p.m. EDT.
