Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

WTA Tour – Monday, Aug. 8, 2022 final results

A day and night stadium sked that has BOTH Serena and Venus Williams, and top Canadian Leylah Fernandez, and a battle of struggling former Grand Slam champions in Sloane Stephens and Sofia Kenin, is a pretty good day.

For the first day of the tournament.

It the reigning Wimbledon champion, and a two-time former Wimbledon champion relegated to the second court.

There was some rain, sure. But a lot happened – including Fernandez’s first career win at her home-country tournament.
