MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Saturday, Aug. 19, 2023 final results

Excellent women’s singles semifinals Saturday – intriguing, potentially great. Both went the distance; both were upsets.

And in doubles, the American team of Taylor Townsend and Alycia Parks cut a swath through three seeded teams to win the title.

It’s been an odd week, but very, very good players there at the end.
