MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Can Bianca Andreescu make the final after only a handful of grass-court tournaments in her entire pro career?

Sure she can. And did. Halep did not make the date because of a neck injury (these things take on significantly more importance a few days before a major).

Another Canadian, Caledon, Ont.’s own Erin Routliffe, was looking for the final in the doubles but was rained out.

In Eastbourne, even though the four semifinalists are lower seeds, it was still a fine final four that includes a pair of former Grand Slam champions.
