AO 2024 – Day 3 women’s final results

MELBOURNE, Australia – Matchup-wise, this might be the best day of the three for the women.

Swiatek v Kenin. Azarenka v Giorgi. Raducanu v Rogers.

Rybakina v Pliskova. All of the favorites did come through, though.

And Jessica Pegula against Canadian qualifier Rebecca Marino, who could have had a better draw, to be sure. But who was looking forward to the opportunity even if, in the end, she didn’t have the leve.
