While you were sleeping 21/8
A perfect day for the Aussies on day 2 of qualifying at the US Open and the announcement of the women's seeds all happened while you were sleeping.
More good news from the US Open qualifying where Olivia Rogowska, Anastasia Rodionova (yes, that’s both Rodionovas into the second round), Ashleigh Barty and Daria Gavrilova all progressed to the second round.
They join James Duckworth, Thanasi Kokkinakis and Arina Rodionova who all won their first-up matches on Day 1 of US Open qualifying.
The women’s seeds have been announced and, unlike in the top 32 men, we have two women flying the flag. Sam Stosur, no stranger to NY having won the title there in 2011, is seeded 24, while Casey Dellacqua makes her Grand Slam seeding debut at No.29.
The top 10 women’s seeds are Serena Williams, Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, Agnieszka Radwanska, Maria Sharapova, Angelique Kerber, Eugenie Bouchard, Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic and Caroline Wozniacki.
