New York, USA, 6 September 2023 | Leigh Rogers

In their US Open debuts, both have progressed to the second round in the junior doubles competitions.

The 15-year-old Emerson is partnering Spain’s Charo Esquiva Banul in the girls’ doubles event. While her older brother, 17-year-old Hayden, is playing alongside American Alexander Razeghi in the boys’ doubles competition.

Pavle Marinkov is another rising star in action on day 10 at Flushing Meadows.

The 17-year-old from Sydney is attempting to become the first Aussie to reach a boys’ singles quarterfinal in New York in eight years.

Heath Davidson also features in the quarterfinals of the quad wheelchair doubles competition.

The 36-year-old Aussie has advanced to two Grand Slam doubles finals alongside Canadian partner Robert Shaw this year.

“We’re doing alright. We’re sick of losing finals, but we’re keeping ourselves in the hunt,” World No.4 Davidson said.

Davidson and world No.3 Shaw face Brit Andy Lapthorne and South Africa’s Donald Ramphadi in a rematch of the Roland Garros 2023 final.

The US Open is broadcast in Australia on the Nine Network and Stan Sport, with coverage starting from 2am AEST.
