’23 Australian Open – Day 4 women’s results

MELBOURNE, Australia – The Canadian women can thank No. 4 seed Caroline Garcia for getting them primo slots on Rod Laver Arena this week.

First came qualifier Katherine Sebov on Tuesday.

On Thursday, Leylah Fernandez will attempt to do what Sebov could not, which is to upset the No. 4 seed.

If she can do it, it would make a pretty big statement in this early blush of the season.

Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of Eastern time.
