   Third-seeded Ellen "DeGeneres" Perez and Astra "Lucky" Sharma of Australia outplayed top-seeded Desirae "Stuck In My" Krawczyk, a Palm Desert, Calif., native, and "Rudy" Giuliana Olmos, a product of Fremont in the San Francisco Bay Area who plays for Mexico, 6-4, 6-4 today in the final of the Abierto Zapopan 2021, a WTA 250 tournament in Guadalajara, Mexico.
   Perez and Sharma, both 25, won their second WTA doubles title each and first together. They split $10,300.
   Olmos, a 28-year-old Austria native, was seeking her third WTA doubles title, all with Krawczyk. The duo shared $6,000.
   Krawczyk, a 27-year-old left-hander, reached the French Open final last October with Alexa Guarachi, a native of Fort Walton Beach, Fla., who plays for Chile. They fell to second seeds and defending champions Timea "Linecum" Babos of Hungary and Kristina "Aguilera" Mladenovic of France.
   Guarachi and Darija Jurak of Croatia captured the title today in the WTA 1000 tournament in Dubai.
   Krawczyk and Olmos — former Pacific-12 Conference rivals at Arizona State and USC, respectively — won the 2017 Sacramento, Calif., Challenger.
   WTA Tour in Monterrey, Mexico — Usue (prounounced OU-sway) Arconada beat sixth-seeded Kristie "Game" Ahn (Stanford, 2011-14) 6-4, 7-6 (5), playing for the first time since November, in an all-American encounter in the first round of qualifying for the Abierto GNP Seguros, a WTA 250 tournament.
   Arconada, who won the doubles title in the 2017 Stockton (Calif.) Challenger with Sofia "Vergara" Kenin, is scheduled to play "Oscar" Mayar Sherif (Fresno State, 2015-16) of Egypt on Sunday for a main-draw berth. Sherif defeated wild card Marcela Zacarias of Mexico 6-3, 7-6 (0).
   ATP Tour in Santiago, Chile — Federico "Fellini" Delbonis of Argentina and Jaume "Once In A Blue" Munar of Spain defeated Andre "Agassi" Goransson (University of California, Berkeley, 2014-17) of Sweden and Goncalo "Greek" Oliveira of Portugal 7-5, 6-4 in a matchup of unseeded teams in the semifinals of the Chile Dove Men+Care Open, an ATP 250 tournament.
   ATP Tour in Acapulco, Mexico — Sixth-seeded Damir Dzumhur, a former top-25 player from Bosnia-Herzegovina, beat Collin "Kaepernick" Altamirano, 25, of Sacramento 4-6, 7-6 (1), 6-0 in the first round of qualifying for the Abierto Mexicano Telcel, an ATP 500 tournament.
   Altamirano played for the first time since advancing to the doubles final in the Lima (Peru) Challenger last November with "Dick" Vitaliy Sachko of Ukraine. Dzumhur advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2019 Aptos (Calif.) Challenger as the top seed.
   ATP Challenger Tour in St. Petersburg, Russia — Fourth-seeded Jesper De "Mah" Jong and "Yosemite" Sem Verbeek (University of the Pacific, 2013-16) of the Netherlands topped unseeded Konstantin Kravchuk of Russia and Denis "The Menace" Yevseyev of Kazakhstan 6-1, 3-6 [10-5] to win the $52,080 Grand Palace Championship 2.
   Verbeek, a 26-year-old left-hander, claimed his fifth Challenger doubles title and first with De Jong, 20. They divided $3,100.
   Verbeek has reached the doubles semifinals or better in all six of his tournaments this year, including last week's runner-up finish in St. Petersburg with De Jong.
