MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

WTA Tour – Friday, Aug. 5, 2022 final results

Six of the eight seeds survived to the quarterfinals in San Jose. And all of the matches could turn out to be pretty delectable.

Meanwhile, in D.C., there was a bit of catchup that needs to be done – but not as much as the men, who were in the third round with a 48 draw and had a lot more matches scheduled.

Meanwhile, Rebecca Marino had a shot at her first career WTA Tour semifinal as she takes on unseeded Daria Saville. Saville upset No. 1 seed Jessica Pegula in the second round. She caught a break when she was almost down and out and the rains came. And she was much more competitive when play resumed.

But it wasn’t enough to take out Saville.
