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.
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.
