MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

WTA Tour – Thursday, Aug. 4, 2022 results

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Emma Raducanu (against Camila Osorio) and Victoria Azarenka (against Tereza Martincova) are the two big names in action as the second round is completed in D.C.

Cana-Kiwi Erin Routliffe looks for a semifinal spot in the doubles with Jessica Pegula – who was also the No. 1 seed in singles but went out early.

On the positive side, at least she’ll have more energy for doubles, with the temperature set to hit 97F Thursday.

And that’s not even the on-court temperature, which will be significantly higher.

In San Jose, Aryna Sabalenka (who has been MIA for reasons we know) and Maria Sakkari enter the fray.

And then there’s Coco vs. Osaka. Popcorn.
