MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Miami – Friday, March 24, 2023 women’s final results

MIAMI, Fla. – The Canadians were able to get by good opponents in their first-round matches.

Now, it got serious as Bianca Andreescu played No. 7 seed Maria Sakkari, and later Leylah Fernandez met No. 9 seed Belinda Bencic.

And a lot of other good matches in store, including veteran Czech Petra Kvitova vs. Czech teen Linda Noskova.

Vondrousova vs Kudermetova also might shape up nicely, although the slower courts in Indian Wells definitely favour Vondrousova more than the quicker ones in Miami.
