MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Great Sunday of tennis in store on the WTA side – whether you’re a fan of Canadian tennis, or just tennis.

In Guangzhou, Cana-Kiwis Erin Routliffe and Gabriela Dabrowski go for the title, and with it qualification to the WTA Finals in Cancun. And put up a terrific match in doing so.

In Hong Kong, Leylah Fernandez pulled off the singles title against fellow unseeded player Katerina Siniakova in a great clash.

In Seoul, half-Korean Jessica Pegula went for the win in her mom’s homeland, and got it easily for her. It was her second of the season – after Montreal in August – and fourth overall in her career.

And in Zhengzhou, Zheng Qinwen pulled off a hugely popular victory.

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