MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Madrid – Wednesday, April 26, 2023 final results

Canadian Leylah Fernandez led off the action on Stadium 3, playing against Mirra Andreeva, who doesn’t turn 16 until the end of the week and comes in having won her only two pro events of 2023: back-to-back $60K ITFs in Switzerland the last two weeks.

She qualified in the first one as well, so that’s 13 straight wins against decent qualify opposition. It didn’t go well for Fernandez.

Genie Bouchard drew fellow qualifier Dayana Yastremska, which was a good outcome. And she prevailed in a topsy-turvy, error-filled match after losing the first set. She’ll play Martina Trevisan in the second round.
