The summer hard-court swing got under way in August, when the Hologic WTA Tour moved on to North America. Our eighth video roundup encompasses Prague, Washington, Montreal, Cincinnati and Cleveland.

Tour stalwarts Alizé Cornet and Kaia Kanepi turned the clock back, going toe-to-toe for over 3 hours in a classic Prague encounter. Jessica Pegula found a new gear to win her second career WTA 1000 title in Montreal.

Spectacular reflexes from Petra Martic and Iga Swiatek, and sensational defense from Mayar Sherif, were also highlights of August. But it was Danielle Collins' combination of defense and offense during her Montreal quarterfinal run which provided the most thrilling rallies of the month.
