MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Dubai – Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022 final results

Two unseeded players in the Dubai final – with Jelena Ostapenko perhaps the less surprising of the two.

Veronika Kudermetova got a free pass, after opponent Marketa Vondrousova, the former French Open finalist who came out of the qualifying, gave her a walkover.

With 500 points for the winner, it’s a great week for Ostapenko.
