MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

RG ’24 – Day 2 women’s singles final results

ROLAND GARROS – Rough Canadian day – in the sense of it being non-stop Canadian content – on Tuesday.

On the women’s side, it was Leylah Fernandez and the returning Bianca Andreescu.

Both had winnable matches. And both impressed in victory

Also – No. 1 Iga Swiatek and No. 3 Coco Gauff – last year’s final – had no trouble advancing.

But popular seeds Maria Sakkari and Beatriz Haddad Maia went out – Haddad Maia to newly-minted Frenchwoman Varvaraga Gracheva. Who has barely won a match all season.
