Simona Halep managed to subdue Elena Rybakina in a three-set battle, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5) to win her second career Dubai title. The win marks the Romanian's 20th WTA title, and her first of the 2020 season.
Rybakina has been skyrocketing up the rankings. She started 2020 by reaching four finals in five events, including her second career title win in Hobart. The 20-year-old was up a set as well as by a break at 3-1 in the third set, before letting the WTA Premier trophy slip away.
Dominic Thiem was unceremoniously dumped out of the Rio quarterfinals by qualifier Gianluca Mager, 7-6 (4), 7-5. Thiem was the top seed, and was coming in from his strong finalist finish in Melbourne.
Mager is a 25-year-old ranked No. 128. He had a 2-3 career ATP record going into the ATP 500 in Brazil, and has only ever played in eight ATP events (losing in qualifying five times). He'll face lucky loser Attila Balazs if rain ever allows play to continue.
In Delray Beach, Yoshihito Nishioka has made his way to the semifinals. The 24-year-old is seeking his second career ATP title, having won his first one in Shenzhen in 2018. He has already won this week as he was the fastest in the DBO Kart race against Mario (Jordan Thompson) and Luigi (Steve Johnson).
