MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Saturday, Aug. 12, 2023 final results

(Tennis Canada/Patrice Lapointe).

Some of the players had to double up on Friday, which didn’t give them much help in navigating the semifinals on Saturday.

And in the end, only one semifinal was completed – but it was a big one, as No. 1 Iga Swiatek was upset.

In the Cincinnati qualifying, Rebecca Marino outlasted Camila Giorgi, who retired down 0-3 in the third set.
