Today’s matches, full schedule and how to watch on TV

Post date:



Andy Murray headlined a superb day for British players in New York by beating Frenchman Corentin Moutet to win 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 in an excellent first-round clash.

Murray’s match was the first to featurs tennis’s new video review system – the only problem was the new sytem did not work 

There were wins also for Katie Boulter and Jodie Burrage, both of whom claimed their first US Open victories, while Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans and Jack Draper all progressed without dropping a set. 

Those successes followed the first-round victory of qualifier Lily Miyazaki on Monday. 

The evening was not so kind to two-time US Open winner Venus Williams, who was eliminated 6-1, 6-1 by Belgian qualifier Greet Minnen in a lopsided clash on Arthur Ashe. 

Day three is headlined by Novak Djokovic, who steps out second on Arthur Ashe to face Bernabe Zapata Miralles of Spain, while defending women’s champion Iga Swiatek is second on Louis Armstrong.

Elsewhere on day three:

  • Fan favourite and No 6 seed Coco Gauff is first on Ashe against teenage sensation Mirra Andreeva
  • British qualifier Lily Miyazaki faces Belinda Bencic of Switzerland – that match is first on Court 5.
  • Caroline Wozniacki faces her toughest test since her return to the professional game against No 11 seed Petra Kvitova.
