Nadal eager to move up gears after slow US Open start

The late-night crowd grew ever-more vocal as the match wore on, cheering on the young American as he snatched points from Federer.

Sharapova is sporting a different look from that night, when she was wearing a black dress under the lights.

On the other hand, Nadal had a relatively easier first round outing during his straight sets win over Dusan Lajovic of Serbia. Moreover, Nick Kyrgios was part of the upsets' wind of yesterday.

Sugita will face Argentine lucky loser Leonardo Mayer, who downed French 26th seed Richard Gasquet 3-6, 6-2, 6-4, 6-2 for a place in the last 32.

"I didn't play very well but I will work hard to find better feelings because I know I can do much better", he said. "It took a while to get used to it". "You see other sports where suspensions aren't almost as long, so I think she's paid her dues and I think the sport, especially on the women's side, needs her back, especially with Serena missing". The American dropped a heartbreaking five-setter to John Isner in the first round at NY last season.

Federer survived a first round scare from Frances Tiafoe as the Swiss ground out a 4-6, 6-2, 6-1, 1-6, 6-4 victory over the American teenager before a raucous crowd at the US Open on Tuesday.

Because of rain much of the day, most U.S. Open matches are being postponed.

"I was a set and a break against but I felt in the first set I had a lot of opportunities".

Lankans fold for 183, to follow-on v India
While bowling, off the twelfth ball India bowled, Upul Tharanga hit a well-struck flick straight at KL Rahul at short leg. The 30-year-old confessed India gave away plenty of runs in the second innings which they should have ideally stopped.

Former champions Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal battled into the US Open last 32 while the women's draw lost the fifth seed from its top eight.

"It was tough at the beginning", Nadal said afterwards.

"I always thought that he was going to play if he was here practising", Nadal said, as quoted on Metro.

Peter Bodo has been covering tennis for over 35 years, mostly recently for ESPN.

The No. 6 seed wrapped up a 6-4, 6-1, 6-1 rout of Australian Alex di Minaur, not long after they returned to the Grandstand. Youzhny earned a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Moscow in 2011, which might help him deal with the bleak prospect of facing Federer, who has won each of the 16 times they've met. She'll meet US qualifier Nicole Gibbs, while No. 15 Madison Keys faces Tatjana Maria and No. 20 CoCo Vandeweghe plays Ons Jabeur.

To make matter worse, Daniel's first-round match was interrupted by rain on Tuesday and was only completed on Wednesday, August 30, robbing the youngster of a day's rest.

Kerber and Osaka had the stage to themselves after play was suspended on all courts other than Arthur Ashe Stadium, which has a retractable roof that was closed midway through No. 1 Karolina Pliskova's 6-2, 6-1 victory over Magda Linette of Poland.

The weather shouldn't be a problem Wednesday, with sunny skies and almost flawless conditions.
