After yesterday’s No. 2 blockade in the world, Simona Halep from Markéta Vondroušová, and No. 1, Naomi Osaka was defeated by Belinda Bencic with 6-3, 6-1 and greeted the tournament from the round of 16. Last year’s champion was not on a good day and could not react to any point in the game losing relatively easily from Bencic, which played very well throughout the game.
In the rest of the games that completed Round 4, Angelique Kerber and Karolína Plíšková took three sets to bend the resistance of Aryna Sabalenka and Anett Kontaveit respectively. Finally, Venus Williams remembered something of her glorious past dominating Mona Barthel with 6-4, 6-4.
