MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA – Monday, Feb. 20, 2023 final results

A big challenge for Canadian Bianca Andreescu Tuesday, as she took on No. 9 seed and Australian Open finalist Elena Rybakina.

They played once before, at Wimbledon last year (we remember that one pretty well, actually). And Rybakina took it 6-4, 7-6 (5) on the way to her unexpected title.

For Andreescu, it was a second-round defeat. In Dubai, it’s a first-round loss.

Also – Leylah Fernandez and Bethanie Mattek-Sands teamed up again, as they did earlier in the season, to face Anna Danilina and Luisa Stefani in doubles. And pulled off the comeback win.

(Dubai is nine hours ahead of ET, 12 hours ahead of PT; Merida is one hour behind)
