How to Watch Roger Federer vs. Frances Tiafoe

Posted September 01, 2017

He now has 52 aces in the tournament, more than any other player.

The truth is with only one roof, the scheduling will always be unfair, but shouldn't Taro vs Paul have been at least first up on a court if the winner's second round opponent was on the main court, given the weather forecast? She made it to the round of 16 at the Australian Open in January.

Sharapova grabbed the second set by a 6-4 score.

Osaka is comfortable around the grounds at Flushing Meadows, where she has been spending time, and even occasionally practicing, since she was a kid: She was born in Osaka, Japan, so represents that country, but moved to the USA when she was 3, has dual citizenship, and used to live on Long Island. The five-time major champion upset No. 2 seed Simona Halep in the first round at Flushing Meadows.

All-in-all, with no day off to record from a five-set battle, Daniel looks bagel fodder for Nadal, giving us a nice first-set 14/1 (Betfair, Paddy Power) side bet to tuck into. Babos reacted with a loud yell.

For those unfamiliar, the 19 Grand Slam title victor is often referred to as the G.O.A.T which stands for Greatest of All Time.

Nick Kyrgios couldn't overcome problems with his shoulder or countryman John Millman.

Rogers next faces No. 4-seeded Elina Svitolina. With the sudden surprise loss of Alexander Zverev in the second round last night, we are left in a unique situation where there isn't a top six player left in the bottom half of the draw and only one top 14 player. The Maryland teen ran away with the fourth set, going up 2-1 before breezing to an easy 6-1 win. Kyrgios pleaded that he hadn't said anything improper, but Ramos said a linesperson had reported to him. "You are not able to hear the ball when you are hitting". In 2017, his only notable performance came at the Chennai Open, in which he reached the quarter-final.

One of the great rivalries in sport, Federer, a five-times US Open victor and Nadal, twice champion, have clashed 37 times over the years, but never have they stood across the net on Flushing Meadows' hardcourts.

How do they match up?

Federer ended up winning that game, but seemed lost throughout the set.

Nadal and long-time rival Roger Federer are hot favourites for the title at Flushing Meadows with Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka all missing.

No. 24 Juan Martin del Potro, another former U.S. Open champion, swept past Spanish qualifier Adrian Menendez-Maceiras 6-2, 6-3, 7-6 (3), but No. 15 Tomas Berdych was beaten by Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov, 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 (5), 6-2. His first serve was a force in the first set, and he won 68 percent of his points on it for the match.

After his opening-round victory over Frances Tiafoe, the player was asked about his nickname, the "Goat" - which stands for Greatest Of All Time. Play resumed on Wednesday and the first round has been wrapped up, so Thursday's action will feature only second-round play in the singles brackets. But Nadal finally converted a break point on his sixth try of the match in the next game to get to 2-all and began to calibrate his big forehand better.

Federer tied Andre Agassi with his 79th career victory at the U.S. Open.

A number of players will be on the court for a second straight day Thursday after nearly all of Tuesday's action was postponed by rain.

Federer capitalised on his first opportunity in the decider, a backhand victor down the line after a poor Tiafoe drop shot giving him a break and 3-1 lead.
