While the Rogers Cup was at its semifinal stage, a lot of players already gathered in Cincinnati to play the first round of qualifying or simply get accustomed to the environment of the Western & Southern Open Premier 5 tournament.
Our Jimmie48 attended the practice sessions of Caroline Wozniacki, Donna Vekic, Julia Goerges, Maria Sharapova, Carla Suarez Navarro, Daria Kasatkina, and Jelena Ostapenko. A number of these players also took part in a WTA video shoot and our photographer was right there as well. Donna Vekic’s busy Saturday included an autograph signing session.
When it comes to qualifying, our gallery includes photos of Kristyna Pliskova’s victory over Zhang Shuai, Lauren Davis’ three-set win over fellow American Kristie Ahn, and Iga Swiatek’s win over Kateryna Kozlova.
