As the singles quarterfinals and doubles semifinals wrap-up, the sheer talent of the remaining players is unmatched. Four singles matches happened earlier in the day under a cloud covered sky. Tensions were high as the tough competition brewed. Osuigwe vs. Inoue showed just how passionate these players are to make it to the next round. Victoria Osuigwe has had an impressive showing throughout the tournament, but this match specifically brought out a frustrated spirit as she was unable to keep up with her opponent, ultimately losing the match 6-4, 7-5.
Another action-packed match was Mia Yamakita vs. Live Hovde . Hovde as mentioned previously, has won semifinals of the 2022 Australian Open girls' singles, the quarterfinals of the 2022 French Open girls' singles, and won the 2022 Wimbledon girls' singles championship. Winning this tournament would be another notch to add to her championship belt. At only 17 years old, all eyes were on her, and she did not disappoint as she won her quarterfinals match 6-2, 6-2.
The popularly talked about wildcard team from University of Delaware, Adel-Byanu Abidullina and Eliza Askarova, played later on in the day when the sun was shining and the conditions could not have been better. They put up a hard fight, but lost their match against Gabriella Broadfoot and Victoria Osuigwe 6-3, 6-4.
