Yesterday was finals day in both Stanford and Washington. I’ll try to catch up the finals with WTA TV but here’s a roundup also covering final qualifying action in Toronto.
I didn’t expect myself to be writing this, but it’s going to be an All American final in the Bank Of The West Classic with Madison Keys taking on CoCo Vandeweghe for the championship.
All the top eight seeds in Stanford have proceeded to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2004 in a WTA event! This provides a blockbuster line-up for the last eight matches and we have a fun one ahead of us in the first match of the day featuring top seed Garbine Muguruza against Ana Konjuh.
This post covers all that has happened in the first three days of the tournaments in Stanford and Washington DC, where the headlines acts involved Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza and Maria Sharapova. I didn’t get to watch much tennis at all so most of them are about tweets!
It’s shaping up to be an intriguing contest as the No.43 and 44 ranked players, Catherine Bellis and Alize Cornet respectively meet in the first round of the Bank Of The West Classic in Stanford.
