MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Daria Kasatkina got a free pass into the Zhengzhou semifinals, as Ons Jabeur, who defeated Lucia Bronzetti in the second round Thursday, withdrew.

But tournament namesake Zheng Qinwen is still in, and the crowd favorite to take it all after getting through the quarters on Friday

In Hong Kong, 21-year-old Leylah Fernandez battled a second consecutive teenager, 18-year-old Linda Fruhvirtova, for a spot in the semifinals. And was just as impressive.

And in Seoul, No. 1 Jessica Pegula is still in the hunt; No. 4 Bouzkova is out.

(Zhengzhou and Hong Kong are 12 hours ahead of ET; Seoul is 13 hours ahead).
