It's OK, she needs experience against top opponents. Reaching the third round in the U.S. Open is a major achievement for her. Maybe she could upset like some other players under 21 years of age.

Tsitsipas is seeded #15 and will face Tommy Robredo from Spain in the first round. Robredo is a qualifier who is currently #208 on the ranking but is a former top-5 ranked player.

Sakkari is seeded #32 and will face Asia Muhammad of the US. Muhammad is the current #248 of the world and is playing thanks to a wildcard. Muhammad by the way is the older sister of Shabazz, who plays for the Bucks (and thus a collegue of Antetekounmpo).

Guess who Tsitsipas is facing in round two? 
Daniil Medvedev! LOL! 
Last time they faced off, it was in the Miami Open where Tsitsipas called him a "Russian bast**d" after he lost to him.

Yep he's been struggling since Wimbledon. Rublev is no slouch and was considered one of the up and coming starts a few years back, not sure if injuries have gotten him or what but he has dropped over the last year or 2. Regardless it was a close match

Tsitsipas reached R2 of this years US Open. He defeated Albert Ramos of Spain: 6-2, 6-1, 6-1.

Next opponent is Maxime Cressy (USA).

Nadal, Federer and a few other players choosing not to play due to COVID. Stefano has a really good draw and there's no reason he shouldn't reach the quarter finals at least.  

Anyway one game at a time, up next is Cressy.

Federer is injured. But COVID-19 keeps a lot of players away from the US Open. Especially at the women tournament.

Maria Sakkari (seeded #15) won her first tie against Stefanie Vögele of Switzerland 6-3, 3-6, 7-5.

Next opponent is Bernarda Pera (USA).
