US Open – Serena, Barty, Pliskova, Svitolina, rain: recap '#USOpen #Mladenovic #Ferro #Serena #Williams #USTA


The rain will have been the major actress of the day from Wednesday to New York. Only matches played on the short Arthur Ashe and the Louis Armstrong Stadium were able to unfold. A well diminished program but some quality matches could still take place.

US Open 2019 – Mladenovic after his feat against Kerber

Ashleigh Barty reassured himself. Virtually queen of the WTA, Ash Barty has risen to power and has dominated in two sets the American Lauren Davis, 6-2, 7-6 (2). Barty used her clear power advantage to turn off the American girl who still created a set ball in the second run. Reassuring, the Aussie will have to torunt himself to his next opponent: either Maria Sakkari, is Shuai Peng.

Serena Williams was once again the attraction of its audience. The veteran had to fight against a young compatriot, Caty McNally. After his demonstration against Maria Sharapova, Serena this time was heckled by the young nugget but assured the essential by winning 5-7, 6-3, 6-1. Despite the loss of the first set, Williams was very solid during the game and left no chance for his opponent in the last two rounds.

Elina Svitolina faced the older sister Williams. Better army, the Ukrainian has tamed Venus Williams in two sets 6-4, 6-4 in just under two hours. After a first set under control, Svitolina was surprised to enter the second run by the 39-year-old who did nothing and led 3-0. The No. 5 seed did not panic and caught up logically to win the game. A convincing match for Svitolina who will give him confidence for the rest of the tournament. She will face either Rebecca Peterson is Dayana Yastremska.

In a match where she was leaving largely favorite, Madison Keys held his rank in dominating Zhu Lin, 122nd player in the world, in just 70 minutes 6-4, 6-1. It took three games for the winner of Cincinnati to start the machine. With 31 points, the American left no chance to the Chinese player who made only nine. A full match for Keys who presents himself even more as an outsider to the title.

Karolina Pliskova is the first to enter the third round. The Czech easily got rid of Mariam Bolkvadze, modest 202nd world and result of qualifications. If the difference in level was felt in the first set, the Georgian got on well in the second set by debriding. But in front, Pliskova was too strong and closed the case in 1:06. She will face the next round Aliaksandra Sasnovich or Ons Jabeur. Also note the rain that prevents matches from other courts to take place.
