After a debut in which it could be complicated but it took it forward with the solvency that the world number one usually presents, Ash Barty takes the second step at the US Open and can be followed at the start of the day through ESPN on STAR +.
It will open the day in the Arthur Ashe before the Danish Clara Tauson. In addition, on the court Louis Armstrong the Canadian BIanca Andreescu, sixth seed and 2019 Open champion, will compete against American Lauren Davis. And the last clash on the main court will face the Czech Karolina Pliskova, fourth seed, against local Amanda Anisimova.
The Australian’s Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon 2021 and Roland Garros 2019 came on grass and clay. Now he’s trying to translate that dominance onto the hard courts of Flushing Meadows.
Barty skipped last year’s US Open due to the pandemic and returned to the circuit willing to increase the size of her showcases.
