Rafael Nadal cruises through in US Open first round

Rafael Nadal cruises through in US Open first round

She came out last night and dominated the first and third sets, sending Halep home in the Round of 128, and leaving the door open for an unbelievable and unpredictable US Open.

Federer managed to break Tiafoe to go up 3-1, and the pair traded games holding serve until Federer was up 5-3 and serving to finish things up.

Federer played under the closed roof at Arthur Ashe Stadium for the first time.

Third seed Roger Federer is due to play his first-round match against American Frances Tiafoe in the second night session match on Arthur Ashe.

Keys reached the U.S. Open's fourth round each of the past two years.

6-2, 6-2 win over Serbia's Dusan Lajovic.

Rafa makes quite the fashion statement at the US Open.

Sharapova is facing Timea Babos of Hungary in a second-round match that she advanced to with a 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 victory over No. 2 seed Simona Halep on Monday night.

Federer finished the match with a whopping 56 unforced errors against 41 winners.

Helping The Displaced Pets Of Hurricane Harvey
Animal Friends in Ohio Township is ready to help, according to Kathlen Beaver, the organization's chief operating officer. During Hurricane Katrina a lot of people refused to evacuate without their pets - that is now happening in Houston , too.

It's a long way from the days when cash-strapped Tiafoe practised with his twin brother Franklin at the College Park Tennis Club. But, yes, it's a different part of life, different part of my tennis career. "It's obvious, no? I am not that way".

"I'd hit against the wall by myself, mimicking techniques I had seen older boys at the academy do". When he withdrew on Saturday, he was very clear: "I obviously spoke to a lot of hip specialists".

He has also already faced Federer, losing in two tight sets at Miami in March this year where "the ground shook", the American teenager remembered.

While many junior prodigies have come and gone, Tiafoe's unique background and work ethic set him apart from the rest.

"So I don't know".

It will ask still more when the second stage of Flushing Meadows Louis Armstrong Stadium, will be equipped to turn a retractable roof from 2018. I think when the crowd really got into it, it was really cool. "He was playing well, not making many mistakes. Great show", tweeted the Wall Street Journal's Jason Gay.

"It was more than a test, it was a good one". "When things connect for him, he's a great player, he's going to have a great future ahead of himself". "I got the break back and after that, everything changed", Nadal said following the match. He will need to better his previous best showing of a 4th Round finish at the US Open to set up a potential clash with Federer, but if that was to happen, Federer wouldn't be all too pleased!

That victory handed the Swiss a record eighth Wimbledon singles title, and his 19th major overall.

His win over Paul was his first at the US Open after his only other appearance at the tourmanent ended in a first-round exit in 2014. Nadal is on fire this year, but has not been able to beat his rival, Roger Federer. The Latvian won the French Open in June.
