Fiona Ferro, the last tricolor hope

No one was waiting for him as the last French of the painting and yet, Fiona Ferro is the only survivor. Thanks to his victory over his friend Kristina Mladenovic, the Franco-Belgian will play for the first time in his career a third round of grand slam. And finally, this is only a logical reward for a player who has progressed since January and who is now in 74th place worldwide. To discover the 2nd week of a Major, the Frenchwoman will have to get rid of the Chinese Qiang Wang, 18th world. If the gap in the ranking is important, on the court, it should not be so strong. This will be the 5th duel between the two young women since September 2018 and the Chinese lead 3-1. The only victory of the Frenchie also took place on clay. But, in great confidence and facing a very irregular opponent, Ferro seems armed to do something and create a new feat.

What Serena Williams this Friday?

Less convincing than facing Maria Sharapova. Serena Williams was heckled by his young compatriot, Caty McNally. Unclear early in the game, the legend knows that it will improve this Friday against Karolina Muchova, formidable 44th world. Quarter finalist at Wimbledon, the Czech is a customer and should not be taken lightly by the American who will undoubtedly have heart to reassure and make a quality copy. Will we still see a hustled favorite?

The fight for the throne continues!

Who will finish world number 1 at the end of the US Open ? Impossible to say for the moment but Ashleigh Barty in any case, virtually. To make sure it stays for the moment, it will be necessary to Maria Sakkari, never easy to maneuver and who has already beaten the Australian once in four confrontations. Just behind Barty, Karolina Pliskova no doubt hoping to put her on the pole. But, that means making a big US Open. It will therefore be necessary to win against the Tunisian Ons Jabeur this Friday. Only favorite not to have dropped a set from the beginning, Pliskova will try to stay on the same dynamic.

In other meetings, Elina Svitolina will try to continue the adventure. The Ukrainian, back on top for several weeks, will face his compatriot Dayana Yastremska, in a duel that will inevitably be interesting. It will be their very first fight. For its part, Madison Keys, always comfortable at home, will also face a compatriot in the person of Sofia Kenin. Finally, note the beautiful duel between Petra Martic and Anastasija Sevastova. Nice New York program.
