Teenager Carlos Alcaraz fended off a late push from veteran Argentine Federico Coria to emerge with a 6-2 6-1 7-5 win on Thursday to reach the U.S. Open third round where he will face American Jenson Brooksby. The young Spaniard used his all-court speed and punishing forehand to win the final 10 points of the first set and broke Coria’s serve to open the second to cruise to a 2-0 sets lead.
Coria refused to go down without a fight and pushed Alcaraz in a marathon game at 4-4 in the third set. Next up, Alcaraz is a meeting with Brooksby who beat Cincinnati Open champion and 25th seed Borna Coric 6-4 7-6(10) 6-1 earlier in the day.
Rafael Nadal vs Fabio Fognini
Rafael Nadal faced a scare in the opening round contest of the US Open against wildcard entrant Rinky Hijikata as he lost the first set to the Australian.
However Nadal soon found his footing in the game as he won the next three sets quite easily to enter the second round where he faces Italy’s Fabio Fognini.
Nadal is aiming for his third grand slam title this year having won the Australian Open and French Open titles. Meanwhile, Fabio Fognini enters the second round after defeating Aslan Karatsev in a five-setter in the opening round.
Fognini has made it to the second round at the Flushing Meadows after 2018. Nadal enters the contest as the favourite and is expected to advance to the third round.
Iga Swiatek beat Sloane Stephens 6-3, 6-2
World number one Iga Swiatek cruised into the third round of the US Open on Thursday with a comfortable straight sets win over former champion Sloane Stephens. Swiatek, who has never gone further than the fourth round in three previous appearances in New York, was in control throughout a 6-3, 6-2 win on the Arthur Ashe Stadium court. The 21-year-old from Poland will face American Lauren Davis for a place in the last 16.
