MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Coco Gauff v Maria Sakkari was a pretty great outcome for the first 500-level edition of the WTA in Washington, D.C.

Gauff winning would be huge for the event (and the fans, who came out in droves to cheer her on Saturday).

And it was a great day for her, the biggest tournament title of her career.

In Prague, the semifinalists WERE to double up to get their tournament done, as play was completely washed out Saturday.

That didn’t happen. They got one semi done, and almost another. But are still being held over to Montreal which is tough for finalist Linda Noskova, who is due in Montreal.

In Montreal, the final round of qualifying, after all the Canadians in the draw were eliminated on Saturday.


(Prague is six hours ahead of EDT; Washington and Montreal are on EDT)
