MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

WTA Tour – Friday, Sept. 23, 2022 final results

Gabriela Dabrowski and Giuliana Olmos, No. 2 in the race to Fort Worth, looked for a semifinal berth in Tokyo on Friday. And got it.

If they can win the tournament, they would eke past current No. 1s Krejcikova and Siniakova by … four points.

In Seoul, six of the eight seeds made it to the quarterfinals – twice as many as made the final eight at the bigger event in Tokyo.
