MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Six of the eight seeds in the Berlin field have made the quarterfinals, which is fairly impressive.

And two Canadians are in the doubles semifinals – with Gabriela Dabrowski in action Friday (in a losing cause), and Bianca Andreescu playing on Saturday.

Four seeds left in Birmingham, the highest being No. 2 Simona Halep.

She gets the hot player of the spring – Beatriz Haddad Maia.
