MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Double headers for half the remaining singles field on Friday, after a rainout Thursday meant that only doubles was played, indoors.

Canadian Leylah Fernandez got past qualifier You Xiaodi in the early afternoon; she then met – and beat Aliaksandra Sasnovich late into the evening for a spot in the semifinals.

In Monastir, the immortal Sara Errani is into the doubles final with countrywoman Jasmine Paolini.

(Nanchang is 12 hours ahead of ET; Cluj-Napoca is seven hours ahead, and Monastir is five hours ahead).
