The 2022 US Open got underway on Monday 29 August with the best players in the world compete for the last Grand Slam title of the year.
The pre-tournament headlines were dominated by Novak Djokovic, who will not be participating this year due to vaccination restrictions, and Rafael Nadal who was also a doubt after his pregnant wife was taken to hospital in Spain earlier this week.
Emma Raducanu also took up much of the pre-tournament stories as she returned as the defending champion but the young Briton was defeated in her opening round by the World number 40 Alize Cornet.
Raducanu had hoped to repeat the success she had enjoyed in 2021 but fell at the first hurdle and now drops to world number 84 in the WTA rankings.
However, there is another youngster in the mix hoping to achieve the impossible.
18-year old Cori ‘Coco’ Gauff is looking to claim her first Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows having already reached the final of the French Open earlier this year.
Gauff breezed through her first round before facing Elena Gabriela Ruse in the second. Both matches were won in straight sets, with Ruse only showing more resistance in the second set. However, Gauff was able to overcome the challenges to win 6-2 7-6(7-4)
