Rafael Nadal vs Rinky Hijikata

Rinky Hijikata has so far had a good debut in the main draw of the Grand Slam as is putting on a great fight against Rafael Nadal. The match started with both the players holding their respective service games as the score reads 3-3. Hijikata never allowed Nadal to settle as he kept on challenging the Spaniard and finally broke his serve in the seventh game to take 4-3 lead. He then held on to his serve as he won the first set 6-4.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Sebastian Baez

Leading an entertaining US Open matchup against Sebastian Baez 7-5, 7-5, 2-0 on Tuesday, Carlos Alcaraz advanced to the second round at the final Grand Slam of the year when his opponent was retired due to a leg injury.

The 19-year-old Spaniard had prevailed in two scintillating sets on Arthur Ashe Stadium against the World No. 37 Baez. Both players produced plenty of high-quality all-court tennis, but it was the 2021 quarter-finalist Alcaraz who had found something extra to clinch a crucial break of serve in the 12th game of both sets.

Cameron Norrie vs Benoit Paire

Norrie claimed the first and third sets of his second tour-level meeting with Paire in just 18 minutes and 15 minutes, respectively, as his consistency overwhelmed his opponent. He also held firm in a far tighter second set during which former World No. 18 Paire let slip the opportunity to level the first-round match when serving at 5-3.

Norrie fired 24 winners, including nine aces, to capitalise on a wayward performance by Paire, who reached the fourth round in New York in 2015. The win represented a comprehensive start for the Briton as he seeks to back up his run to his maiden Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon in July.

Iga Swiatek vs Jasmine Paolini

World No.1 Iga Swiatek clinched an emphatic 67-minute win against Jasmine Paolini in the first round at the US Open and it was a reminder that, even out of her comfort zone, the 21-year-old can still be a destructive force. Swiatek smacked 14 winners to Paolini’s five, and was ruthless in converting seven of nine break points.

The No.56-ranked Italian battled hard, breaking back twice in the first set and then winning the point of the match in the second with a backhand winner after going toe to toe with Swiatek for 27 shots. But it wasn’t enough to halt Swiatek’s momentum as the World No.1 powered to her 18th bagel set of the year.

Clara Burel vs Elena Rybakina 

Frenchwoman Clara Burel joined the growing list of giant-killing qualifiers at this year’s U.S. Open as she toppled Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina 6-4 6-4 in the first round. Hot on the heels of Ukrainian Daria Snigur’s win over twice Grand Slam winner Simona Halep and Colombian Daniel Galan’s triumph over fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, the 131st ranked Burel produced an assured display to eliminate Rybakina.

Venus Williams vs Alison van Uytvanck 

Venus Williams, 42, was making her Open Era record 91st Grand Slam main-draw appearance. But unlike sister Serena, there won’t be a Round 2 for the elder sibling as she lost the first-round match, 6-1, 7-6 (5), to Alison Van Uytvanck. The first question in her post-match press conference was about her future plans. “Right now I’m just focused on the doubles,” she said. She did not elaborate. Venus is 0-4 in matches since coming back earlier this month in Washington, D.C. from a nearly one-year layoff.

Emma Raducanu vs Alizeh Cornet 

Defending Champion Emma Raducanu faces a tough first round contest against Alize Cornet. Cornet recently defeated World No.1 Iga Swiatek in straight sets in the third round of Wimbledon. Cornet will look to clinch another upset victory over the 11th seeded Raducanu. Raducanu meanwhile has had a injury plagued season and has not been in great touch. She enters US Open after a third round defeat at Cincinnati Masters.
