Osaka sinks Kerber as rain causes havoc at US Open

Roger Federer believes he will find consistency at the US Open after being pushed to five sets once again in the second round.

The five-time Flushing Meadows victor lost the first set 4-6 to his 18-year-old opponent.

"I always wanted to play the best in the world, and I hoped I would be ready for it and give my best stuff no matter who I was against", Tiafoe said (via the New York Post ) after his five-set thriller against Federer in the first round of the U.S. Open.

The 36-year-old Swiss, who won this year's Wimbledon and Australian Open crowns, took the US Open titles from 2004-2008.

Federer now boasts a ideal 17-0 record against the former world number eight from Russian Federation, whose ranking had slumped to 101 before today's encounter. "Then towards the end of the second set, Youzhny changed his game and hit harder and Federer was caught off guard", Swede Wilander, at Flushing Meadows as an analyst for Eurosport, said in his daily chat with Reuters.

"We've played a bunch of times and this was probably our best match".

Rublev won in three straight sets: 7-5, 7-6 (3), 6-3.

The 19-time Grand Slam champion squandered two opportunities to bagel the Russian, but he sealed the opening set a game later after just 27 minutes.

"It's an awesome feeling".

"I was quite up and down", Federer said, acknowledging that he was cautious with his footwork and had some trouble seeing the ball properly.

Thiem saved 16 of 18 break points he faced in a stalwart defensive display.

"Obviously, Jay Z definitely got my attention", Tiafoe told the New York Times in 2015.

Belgian ninth seed David Goffin saw off Guido Pella of Argentina 3-6, 7-6 (7/5), 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 in a marathon 4hr 12min match. "Extremely well, I wasn't here a year ago".

After needing five sets to move past rising American talent Francis Tiafoe in the first round, the Swiss maestro found himself in another dogfight with Mikhail Youzhny.

The US hasn't produced a men's singles champion at the majors since Andy Roddick in 2003, and many fans and sportswriters are hoping that the young Tiafoe can build on his remarkable five-set loss to take up the mantle. Both matches were decided on third-set tie-breakers.

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko led 6-2, 1-6, 3-1 when play had been suspended a few hours earlier.

Kerber is the third top seed to go out in the first round after No.2 Simona Halep and seventh-seeded Johanna Konta lost Monday.

"My focus has been more on the back, making sure I can play the tournament rather than being well-prepared".

Ukraine's Svitolina reached the last 32 for a third successive year by breezing past Russia's Evgeniya Rodina 6-4, 6-4.

4-6, 6-4, 6-2 in front of a perplexed and often concerned audience on the main court, Arthur Ashe, but he hardly erased the unpalatable memory of almost losing to the American Frances Tiafoe over the same distance in the first round. He's looking for his 1116th match win, whereas Tiafoe has just 7 total career wins.
