MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

A little unfinished business in Berlin, where they got through … most of a rain-delayed double dose Saturday – with the help of a bunch of injury retirements. Which was unfortunate.

Jessica Pegula went to sleep Saturday night knowing she was four points away from beating top seed Coco Gauff and moving onto the final.

In the end, it took five. And in the end, she had to save match points before finally prevailing over Anna Kalinskaya and denying the Russian her first career title.

In Birmingham, a … shocked Yulia Putintseva won her first grass-court title.

(Berlin and Bad Homburg are 6 hours ahead of EDT; Birmingham and Eastbourne are 5 hours ahead)
