LEYLAH FERNANDEZ

Canadian Leylah Fernandez won her opening women’s singles match at the Miami Open on Saturday.
Fernandez, of Laval, Que., dispatched Colombia’s Emiliana Arango 6-4, 6-2 to advance to the third round. The two were slated to play Friday but rain and wind suspended play before the two could get on to the court.

Leylah Fernandez had no aces and four double faults while winning 70 per cent of her first serves. But she was especially effective in breaking her opponent, converting on all six chances she got in the match.
Montreal’s Felix Auger-Aliassime lost his second-round match in straight sets 6-2, 6-4 to fourth-seeded German Alexander Zverev later Saturday night.

Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., defeated 10th-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece 6-2, 6-4 to reach the round of 32.

The Canadian will next take on Matteo Arnaldi of Italy.
