US Open Day 1 – Women’s singles final results

Both Canadian women, Leylah Fernandez and qualifier Rebecca Marino, play on the same day.

Which is pretty much par for the course with the roll of the scheduling dice at the US Open.

Feels like feast or famine, every year.

(We’re joking – mostly).

Fernandez pulled through, but Marino came up against a tall order.
