Teams for the Laver Cup have been announced.
Yeah, Roger Federer’s playing. Yeah, so too is Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray as well. But this year’s US Open just feels more wide open than in the past. Sure you have 3 of the Big 4 as the favorites, but they just don’t feel like locks to win it. That’s because we’ve seen breakthroughs [...]
Karolina Pliskova is the top seed at a Grand Slam for the first time.
The last two times Rafael Nadal was the top seed at the US Open, he won the title!
Garbine Muguruza isn't focused on No. 1, but she's on her way there.
Rafael Nadal returns to No. 1. But can he keep it?
"Going to the [US] Open, it's for sure a lot of positivity with it, but the most important thing now is just to stay grounded, keep on doing the same work, believe in myself, and just prepare the best way that I can for the Open," Dimitrov said.
"I think today was my best performance of the tournament, because I felt like I played 20 hours in that court," Muguruza said. "I think I did few little mistakes and my shots were very [well] placed and I think I was doing almost everything right there."
The Cincinnati final is set between Grigor Dimitrov and the unseeded Nick Kyrgios.
Wildcards were awarded to Gulbis, Cyprus' Petros Chrysochos, Coric, and American Taylor Fritz...
"I just want to go tomorrow and play my game," Halep said, repeating perhaps the most overused statement in women's tennis. "If it's going to happen, great, but if not I will have more opportunities. Hopefully I can do it. I have the desire."
Tough starts for seeds (1) Radwanks vs. (WC) Bouchard, (5) Vesnina vs. (WC) Stephens, and (7) Strycova vs. the rising Russian Kasatkina...
Who'll win their first Cincinnati title this weekend?
"I think it was probably one of the best matches of the year," Muguruza said. "Because I felt like we both played very well. Especially in that third set, we were winning points and our serve was there."
Rain played havoc with the Thursday schedule in Cincinnati.
"The match felt quite tough -- it was not easy at all," Halep said. "I can say that I'm not playing my best tennis in this moment, but winning, even if I play less good, I think it's a big plus for me."
Roger Federer is still entered to take part in the US Open's Arthur Ashe Kids' Day event. Good sign for his recovery from a back injury?
A loss in Cincinnati isn't worrying to Alexander Zverev.
Victoria Azarenka may have to choose: US Open or be with her baby.
Alexander Zverev is happy to get some rest.
