Aussies in action: US Open Day 2
Nick Kyrgios and John Millman will feature in the prime time action under lights on Tuesday as the US Open continues at Flushing Meadows.
Nick Kyrgios and John Millman will play under lights on the second day of the US Open, with the Australian duo to feature on the tournament’s two biggest courts.
Kyrgios, the 28th seed and highest-ranked Australian man, takes on Steve Johnson at Louis Armstrong Stadium as John Millman — a quarterfinalist in New York last year — faces world No.2 Rafael Nadal at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Five more Aussies — Jordan Thompson, Alexei Popyrin, Thanasi Kokkinakis, Ajla Tomljanovic and Astra Sharma — will also play their first-round matches on Tuesday, hoping to join compatriots Ash Barty and Alex de Minaur in the second round.
