WTA Tour – Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2020 results

.

The order of play on the Centre Court in Lexington – on a Tuesday, at a 250-level WTA event – is completely off the charts.

Serena. Venus v Vika. Coco. And Sloane Stephens against young Canadian Leylah Annie Fernandez – who defeated the 2017 US Open champion just a week before the sport shut down in March. That came down at the Acapulco tournament.  And then, on the second court, you have Anisimova vs. Bellis.

If feels like a lot of things will be … revealed by the end of the day. The downside? There are thunderstorms in the forecast.
