Open Court


WTA Tour – Saturday, Sept. 16, 2023 final results

A fairly rare Saturday final in San Diego, with the WTA 1000 in Guadalajara starting on the Sunday.

And somewhat of a surprise, with No. 4 seed Barbora Krejcikova, who had a wild card into the tournament, facing wild card Sofia Kenin.

Then again, both are former Grand Slam champions.

In Osaka, young American Ashlyn Krueger – whose coach, Michael Joyce, also worked with Kenin last spring – is into the final there after a routine victory Saturday.

(Osaka is 13 hours ahead of ET; San Diego is three hours behind).
