US Open ’23: Women’s Day 1 final results

FLUSHING MEADOWS, NY – No Canadian women in action Monday on the first day of the 2023 US Open.

And you know what that means: all the women will play Tuesday.

Can’t even blame the schedulers; they all ended up in the same half of the draw.

Top most is world No. 1 Iga Swiatek, who will begin her quest for a two-peat against Swede Rebecca Peterson on Arthur Ashe.

As for Caroline Wozniacki, who got a great first-round draw and is returning to the Grand Slam level for the first time in her unretirement, she gets to follow Tsitsipas vs Raonic on Louis Armstrong.

She wore a … Taylor Townsend vintage body suit, and came out wearing a black sort of Dracula cape/wrap.
