MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Saturday, April 20, 2024 final results

Before Friday in Stuttgart, there was a possibility that the top four players in the world would be there for today’s semifinals.

But only No. 1 Iga Swiatek and No. 4 Elena Rybakina – both surer values week in and week out – made the date.

No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka and No. 3 Coco Gauff (whose game is so full of woe at the moment), did not.

The two who did will face off in one semi, and the winner will be the favorite to win it all.

And in Rouen, two players who opted for the smaller event to make some headway instead of Stuttgart, Sloane Stephens is having a WEEK. She easily disposes of Caroline Garcia and is onto the final.

(Stuttgart and Rouen are 6 hours ahead of EDT; Oeiras is 5 hours ahead)
