Three matches to watch at Flush­ing Mead­ows to­day

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport / Us Open -

Naomi Osaka v Camila Giorgi

Osaka, the 2018 cham­pion, is mak­ing waves in her ac­tivism – with plans to wear a mask with the names of dif­fer­ent vic­tims of po­lice bru­tal­ity for each round. As a for­mer top-30 player, Giorgi is a tough chal­lenge.

Karolina Pliskova v Caro­line Gar­cia

Pliskova is the women’s top seed, in with a real chance of claim­ing her first ma­jor ti­tle. Gar­cia is a dif­fi­cult draw, though.

Cameron Nor­rie v Fed­erico Co­ria

The Bri­tish No 3 won five-set­ter against Diego Schwartz­man – but not be­fore he and the No 9 seed bat­tled through a record 58 break points. Co­ria, ranked 103, is an eas­ier match-up on pa­per.
