MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Five of the eight singles seeds made it to the quarterfinals in singles in Guangzhou, with No. 1 Magda Linette v No. 5 Rebeka Masarova being the most intriguing matchup for Thursday’s sked.

Tatjana Maria v Yulia Putintseva also was likely to have all but the kitchen sink, in terms of court craft. It had potential to be one of those little hidden-gem matches, if you like all the variety. Turned out to be so – at least for the first two sets.

In Guadalajara, the unseeded matchup between Leylah Fernandez and Sofia Kenin led the quarterfinal day, but there will be no Canadian content in the semis.

As well, plenty of Canadian content in the dubs.

(Guangzhou is 12 hours ahead of ET; Guadalajara is two hours behind).
