MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

IW ’23 – Saturday, March 11, 2023 WTA final results

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. – The two remaining Canadian women in singles, both seeded with a first-round bye, will play their openers Saturday.

Finally.

Bianca Andreescu gets Stadium 3 against American wild card Peyton Stearns. It’s listed as “not before 5 p.m.”, but a realistic start time is more like 6:30 p.m. or so.

For Leylah Fernandez, who has a rematch of her Roland Garros girls’ singles final from a few years ago, it’ll likely be around 1 p.m. PT, or shortly after that, on Stadium 4.

(Indian Wells, Calif. is on PT, three hours behind ET)
