All seven Russian tennis players have been cleared to compete at the Rio Olympics, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) said on Sunday. "The seven Russian tennis players who have been nominated to compete in Rio have been subject to a rigorous anti-doping testing program outside Russia," the ITF said in a statement. "The ITF believes that this is sufficient for the seven Russian tennis players to meet the relevant requirement of today’s decision of the IOC Executive Board." The International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided on Sunday not to impose a blanket ban on Russia competing at the Rio Games, leaving decisions on the participation of athletes to individual sports federations.
Yanina Wickmayer beat Lauren Davis 6-4, 6-2 in the Citi Open final Sunday to win the fifth WTA title of her career. "It's such a great feeling to win titles and to hold that trophy at the end of the week," said Wickmayer, who entered with a ranking of 44th. In her only other appearance in Washington, in 2013, Wickmayer lost in the first round.
