While you were sleeping 4/9
Another seed crashes on the women's side, Vika shows that singing is not her talent and Gilles Simon takes it to the ballkids.
Aussie junior Marc Polmans lost his second-round singles match overnight, leaving Omar Jasika to fly the flag for the Aussies in the junior singles championships. He faces third seed Jared Donaldson in the third round.
The US Open’s most endangered species, otherwise known as the “female seed” was dealt another blow with Ekaterina Makarova toppling two-time Australian Open champ and former No.1 Victoria Azarenka. Admittedly Makarova is seeded 17th to Azarenka’s 16th, so it’s not an upset on paper, but it still feels like the women’s draw has lost yet another star.
Petra Kvitova’s conqueror Aleksandr Krunic has admitted that having a sponsor early on may have stalled her progress.
Victoria Azarenka‘s awkward attempt at singing happy birthday to Gael Monfils (which Caroline Wozniacki later ridicules) is a must-watch.
He may not have made it to the US Open but you can still check out what Rafa would have worn.
And spare a thought for this ball girl who was hit in the face by a Gilles Simon serve.
