Three matches to watch at Flushing Meadows today
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.
