Serena headlines day six at the US Open

Serena headlines day six at the US Open”

The reigning Australian Open champion Kenin is yet to drop a set at Flushing Meadows as she bids for her second Grand Slam title of the year, and of her career.

Stephens, who won the U.S. Open title in 2017, was wearing a face mask with the words "No Justice/No Peace" emblazoned on it to draw attention to racial injustice in the United States.

The American, who last won the US Open in 2014, broke Gasparyan in the next game to avoid potentially being dragged into a third set.

Williams, the tournament's third seed, takes on unseeded Russian Margarita Gasparyan under the lights on day four's first evening match inside the main Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Roger Federer is the only player to hit the charts twice, achieving 101 wins at the All England Club and 102 at the Australian Open, sharing the second place with Serena Williams who stood on 102 US Open victories after her first-round success.

Williams then broke again with an excellent overhead to go 5-1 up; although she lost her serve to love in the next, the American bounced back in the following game to break for a third time and seal the set in 35 minutes.

The third-round match is the drawcard event on day six at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in NY.

"I feel like I found a groove". "Before it was, like, nearly a life-and-death situation for me to win a match. You can't win a Grand Slam and not be really, really, really, really, really good".

"I've just got to get ready for the match", said Williams.

The 33-year-old is trying to rebuild his injury-ravaged career with a new metal hip that was installed last year.

The second-set setback "could help me know what not to do next time".

"He's one of the big champions of the last decade, Thiem said of Cilic".

"I think there is an incredible opportunity to get more women of color in this sport".

Third seed and beaten finalist previous year Daniil Medvedev made light work of Australia's 116th-ranked Christoper O'Connell, easing into round three 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

In an early men's match Thursday, Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut progressed against Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. I have only one wish and that is to regain my freedom, "said Mladenovic, ranked 44th".

Having beaten Liudmila Samsonova in the first round, Pironkova showed her prowess on fast courts has not diminished by knocking out 10th seed Muguruza 7-5 6-3.

"Coming from three year of absence on the tour, you always have your doubts".

The 32-year-old said: "I guess I was mentally prepared".

British ninth seed Jo Konta became another high-ranking woman to be sent packing, losing in three sets to Romania's Sorana Cirstea after going a set ahead.
