Second-round match from the top half of the women’s draw played out at the US Open on Wednesday.
Major news is that Day 3 defined two third-round blockbusters, the all-Williams match and Sloane Stephens vs. Victoria Azarenka. Also, Garbine Muguruza, who switched from her Adidas Fall Barricade Shorts to a black skirt from the new collection, fell to world No.202 Karolina Muchova.
Our Jimmie48 covered the victories of the Williams sisters (including Serena’s husband Alexis Ohanian), as well as those of Sloane Stephens, Victoria Azarenka, Elina Svitolina, Ekaterina Makarova, Karolina Pliskova, Rebecca Peterson, Kaia Kanepi, and Sofia Kenin. Moreover, we have pics of Alize Cornet’s press conference, when the Frenchwoman discussed her code violation for taking her shirt off.
