MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Friday, Oct. 6, 2023 final results

(Tennis Canada/Mathieu Bélanger)

Quarterfinal time in Beijing, with some super matchups in store including Coco Gauff vs. Maria Sakkari.

Iga Swiatek vs Caroline Garcia led it off, with Swiatek holding a 2-1 head-to-head (Garcia’s victory came on home turf for Swiatek, in Warsaw last year).

But they hadn’t played each other in nearly a year.

Garcia was two points away from winning it – after coming back from two breaks down and 0-4 down in the second-set tiebreak. In the end, she couldn’t get it done as Swiatek ran away in the third.

(Beijing is 12 hours ahead of ET).
