It was the first day of play at the 2022 WTA Finals, with the prize money once again reduced from China levels to a still-tasty $5 million in total.

Jessica Pegula had double-duty – first, a rematch of last week’s Guadalajara Open final against Maria Sakkari.

And then doubles with Coco Gauff. She ended up 0-for-2

Concurrently, the WTA 125 in Midland, Michigan – a long-standing tournament that was held as an ITF in the wintertime until this year – features plenty of Americans and two Canadians: Genie Bouchard and Carol Zhao.

Katherine Sebov got through the final round of qualifying on Monday.
