MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

WTA Tour – Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2022 final results

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Emma Raducanu and Victoria Azarenka (who had a birthday two days ago) headlined the women’s side for the second day of the Citi Open. And both got through.

Bianca Andreescu, Naomi Osaka and Coco Gauff were all on the San Jose sked. But Andreescu, improbably and unfortunately, came up with a back injury and lost to Shelby Rogers.

Cana-Kiwi Erin Routliffe is paired up with top-10 player and Roland Garros doubles finalist Jessica Pegula this week. And their first-rounder was pretty routine.

Osaka needed three sets to get past Zheng Qinwen.
