Third-round draw was defined on Saturday at the BNP Paribas Open, as the busy day delivered 16 women’s singles matches in the second round. The most talked about encounters were defending champion Naomi Osaka‘s revenge against Kristina Mladenovic and Venus Williams‘ elimination of Petra Kvitova.
Our Jimmie48 is bringing us photos from these two, as well as from a great deal of other Saturday’s matches, including Mona Barthel‘s upset of seed No.17 Madison Keys, Angelique Kerber‘s quick victory over Yulia Putintseva, Karolina Pliskova‘s three-setter against Misaki Doi, Belinda Bencic‘s progress past Alison Van Uytvanck, Anett Kontaveit‘s defeat of Monica Puig, and more.
