MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021 final results

Aryna Sabalenka, whose Indian Wells was over before it began after she tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in the desert, took a wild card into Moscow.

She ended up being the No. 1 seed. Hopefully there are no lingering effects as she got through three sets in a tough opener against Aussie Ajla Tomljanovic.
