MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Thursday, Aug. 18, 2022 final results

Aryna Sabalenka provided the most drama, finally seeing off Shelby Rogers at 12:30 a.m., to book a spot in the quarterfinals against Zhang Shuai.

But the shocker was Madison Keys, who took care of world No. 1 Iga Swiatek in straight sets – even if she came close to throwing away a 5-0 lead in the second set, serving for the match twice – unsuccessfully.

But she got it done.
