Can Djokovic Continue His Strong Comeback At the US Open?

Can Djokovic Continue His Strong Comeback At the US Open?

Rafael Nadal is hopeful David Ferrer will get the goodbye he deserves after his compatriot's final grand slam match was cut short by injury.

Nadal led 6-3, 3-4 in their round one tie before Ferrer retired due to a calf injury.

No. 12 Garbine Muguruza vs. Karolína Muchová: With No. 1 seed Simona Halep out of the way, Muguruza will look to make it to Week 2 of the tournament with thrashing wins in the first few rounds.

Ferrer, whose decision to retire brings the curtain down on his final appearance at a Grand Slam, said he had taken an injection before the match.

"I knew that it was impossible finish the match".

Nadal's potential semifinal opponent, Argentine third seed and 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro, reached the second round with a 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 win over U.S. qualifier Donald Young.

Other opening day winners in the men's draw were seeded Americans John Isner and Jack Sock, Canadian seeds Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov, Greek 15th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, Croatian 20th seed Borna Coric and veteran Spanish 31st seed Fernando Verdasco.

The item had more than 4 million views by Monday evening, when Williams beat Magda Linette 6-4, 6-0 in the first round of the U.S. Open.

Ending with the tag line, "It's only insane until you do it", the spot for her shoe and clothing sponsor shows video of Williams as a young girl, practicing with her father, interspersed with clips of her playing as an adult at Grand Slam tournaments.

If you recall, that was the site of Shapovalov's incredible win over Rafael Nadal, and Auger-Aliassime, and his mom and sister, were Shapovalov's biggest fans that week.

Prolific playwright Neil Simon dead at 91
He wrote more than 30 plays in total, and was also nominated for four different Oscars for his screenplays over the years. Simon's wife, Elaine Joyce Simon , was at the writer's bedside, along with Simon's daughters, Ellen and Nancy Simon .

Last year's runner-up Kevin Anderson was in deep trouble at two sets to one down to American Ryan Harrison and struggling with cramp but recovered to win 7-6 (7-4) 5-7 4-6 6-3 6-4.

"He is one of the greatest players we have had in our country".

"I'm improving tournament after tournament, match after match".

That cover was not needed to protect from rain on Day 1 at the year's last major tournament — although some protection from the bright sun and its 90-degree (33-degree Celsius) heat might have been in order.

Others offered other words of praise, including 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, who said after winning his first-round match Monday that Ferrer "was the kind of player no one wanted to face".

Auger-Aliassime, making his slam debut after coming through qualifying, had needed a medical timeout for an irregular heartbeat in the third set.

Novak Djokovic engaged "survival mode" as he battled past Marton Fucsovics in brutally hot and humid conditions at the US Open.

Djokovic could face a quarterfinal matchup with Federer, the five-time champion who meets Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan in a night match.

Wawrinka, the former world No. 3, now down at 101, shrugged off having to take a medical time-out early in the third set.

At 3hr and 17min on the new Louis Armstrong Stadium, it was Murray's longest match since his comeback in a reassuring indication of his fitness.
