Federer, Djokovic headline day two at Flushing Meadows

Zverev needs mindset change to make Slam breakthrough say pundits

Top seed Rafael Nadal moved into the second-round of the US Open after countryman David Ferrer was forced to retire with a left calf injury midway through the second set.

Women's first round: No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki beat Samantha Stosur 6-3, 6-2; No. 5 Petra Kvitova beat Yanina Wickmayer 6-1, 6-4; No. 10 Jelena Ostapenko beat Andrea Petkovic 6-4, 4-6, 7-5; No. 20 Naomi Osaka beat Laura Siegemund 6-3, 6-2; Kirsten Flipkens beat No. 24 CoCo Vandeweghe 6-3, 7-6 (3).

While being interviewed on the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium following the match, he told the crowd that he had played the final Grand Slam match of his career.

"I'm so sorry because I can't finish the match, but anyway, thanks a lot".

Man of the moment Stefanos Tsitsipas won his first main-draw match at Flushing Meadows, beating veteran qualifier Tommy Robredo 6-3 7-6 (7/1) 6-4, while there was an emphatic 6-0 6-3 6-4 victory over Donald Young for third seed Juan Martin del Potro.

The Brit leads head to head meetings 13-2, Verdasco only beat him at 2003 Segovia Challenger and 2009 Australian Open.

Wawrinka, the 2016 champion, swept to a 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 victory on Arthur Ashe Stadium to repeat his opening round triumph over Dimitrov at Wimbledon.

0 - Number of No. 1-seeded women who had lost in the first round of the U.S. Open in the professional era until Halep did Monday.

"But I started to get into the return games, stood back a little more and that gave me more time to get in the rallies and find my range with my ground strokes". Cilic was also finalist at Wimbledon previous year while del Potro was a semifinalist in 2013.

"She played her best when I was up", said Williams after the almost three-hour match.

The 21-year-old has yet to get past the quarter-final of a Slam while his last two visits to NY have seen second-round exits.

Young American Frances Tiafoe finally has his first U.S. Open win on his fourth try - and he eliminated a seeded player, to boot.

Since turning pro in 2000, Ferrer has won 726 matches, including 27 titles.

Auger-Aliassime, making his slam debut after coming through qualifying, had needed a medical timeout for an irregular heartbeat in the third set.

At 3hr and 17min on the new Louis Armstrong Stadium, it was Murray's longest match since his comeback in a reassuring indication of his fitness.

Wawrinka, the former world No 3, now down at 101, shrugged off having to take a medical time-out early in the third set.

The 31-year-old has not played at a Slam since Wimbledon in 2017 and there remain serious doubts over whether or not he can last two weeks of intense best-of-five sets in NY.

In one of the more intriguing matches, Canadian teens Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime clashed for a first time and Shapovalov took via the worst way, the Auger-Aliassime in tears after retiring down 7-5, 5-7, 4-1 due to an irregular heartbeat.
