’23 Australian Open – Day 1 women’s final results

Andreescu at the 2023 Australian Open

MELBOURNE, Australia – Two of the Canadian women were in action Monday in the first round of the 2023 Australian Open.

Two more will come Tuesday, with qualifier Katherine Sebov and 2021 US Open finalist Leylah Fernandez competing the set.

On Monday, Bianca Andreescu had a tough task against No. 25 seed Marie Bouzkova. But she actually made it look pretty routine.

And later in the day, Rebecca Marino went up against Zhu Lin of China, a player she felt she could beat. But she wasn’t able to pull the trigger.

As for the rest, only one (not entirely unexpected) upset as Marta Kostyuk took out Amanda Anisimova (in addition to Andreescu taking out Bouzkova).

Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of Eastern time.
