ALEX ZVEREV (GER) (5) v BRAN­DON NAKASHIMA (US)

WORLD No 7 Zverev is an­other fu­ture star with an eye on a first Slam fi­nal. He emerged from a tough first-round clash with Kevin An­der­son in four sets.

THE 2018 US Open cham­pion Osaka pulled out of last week’s Cincin­nati fi­nal with a hamstring in­jury but re­turned to beat fel­low Ja­panese player Misaki Doi in three sets. A vo­cal Black Lives Mat­ter sup­porter, she has vowed to con­tinue her ac­tivism.
