2022 US Open: Who plays today Aug. 31? Match times for Serena Williams, Coco Gauff, Madison Keys

Serena Williams will aim to keep her run going at the US Open against world number two Anett Kontaveit with 2017 finalist Madison Keys also in action.

Serena Williams back as US women highlight Day 3

Day 2 of the US Open saw some big names crash out at the first hurdle, chief among them in the women’s draw reigning champion Emma Raducanu, who was beaten in straight sets by in-form veteran Alizé Cornet. The Frenchwomen reached the quarters at the Australian Open and the fourth round at Wimbledon, where she ended Iga Swiatek’s 37-game winning streak, and was too much for the 2021 singles winner. Two-time US Open champion Naomi Osaka was also handed a tough opening game against 19th seed and Australian Open finalist Danielle Collins, who overpowered the former number one in straight sets.

In the men’s draw Stefanos Tsitsipas was the highest seed to fall, the Greek completely out of sorts as he dropped the first two sets to Colombia’s Daniel Galán before eventually losing in four. Rafael Nadal dropped the opening set against qualifier Rinky Hijikata but swiftly found his range to sweep through the next three. Carlos Alcaraz and Borna Coric remain on course for a third-round meeting after negotiating their openers, the Spaniard in less than three following the retirement of Sebastian Baez and the Croatian, who won in Cincinnati, in five against qualifier Enzo Couacaud.

Serena, Gauff and Keys lead US charge on Day 3

On Wednesday attention will turn to the US players in the women’s draw with Serena Williams, Madison Keys and Coco Gauff all in action. Of the three marquee players, 2017 finalist Keys has arguably the toughest assignment against Camila Giorgi. The hard-hitting Italian reached the last 16 in Toronto, taking out Raducanu in the opening round, and at the French Open. Although 15/15 for the season, the 30-year-old is the sort of player nobody relishes seeing in the same section of the draw.

Williams will attempt to keep her retirement tournament – if indeed it is to be her final swing – alive against second seed Anett Kontaveit, who despite her ranking has only been past the fourth round of a slam once at the Australian Open in 2020. Given her vast experience, the 23-times major winner and a partisan crowd may well produce an upset on Arthur Ashe.
