Top 5 Photos, August 21: Teichmann through to biggest final; Zverev denies Tsitsipas


World No. 1 Ash Barty has not dropped a set en route to the Western & Southern Open final. On Saturday, she bested Angelique Kerber, 6-2, 7-5, in a replay of July’s Wimbledon semifinals.


In the second set of his semifinal clash, 2019 Cincinnati champion Daniil Medvedev knocked over a TV camera after attempting to chase down a shot from Andrey Rublev.


Rublev, who fell to 0-11 in sets against the world No. 2 after dropping their opener, ultimately reversed his past misfortunes to prevail, 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.


If she hadn’t it proven enough already, Jil Teichmann showed her Cincinnati wild card was more than justified when she swept past No. 5 seed Karolina Pliskova, 6-2, 6-4, to reach the biggest final of her career.


With No. 2 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas serving for the spot in the final at 5-4 in the third set, No. 3 seed Alexander Zverev dug in to eke out a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (4) victory.
