US Open 2017: Order of play, Day 1 - Simona Halep faces Maria Sharapova test

Varvara Lepchenko (USA) v Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) [3]
Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs. Simona Halep (ROU) [2]


MATCH OF THE DAY

  • Varvara Lepchenko (USA) v Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP) [3]
Garbine Muguruza has threatened to take the step up to fulfill the post-Serena landscape of women's tennis, but has not yet quite managed to achieve dominance. The US Open is another chance for her to make progress towards a number one ranking.

POTENTIAL UPSET OF THE DAY

  • Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs. Simona Halep (ROU) [2]
Simona Halep often has a hard time finishing off games that she is favourite for. Here she's favourite again, but against an unusual underdog. Maria Sharapova is easing into a comeback after a drugs ban, and it's not yet quite clear if she's declined, maintained or improved her form with some time away from competition. Halep could be taken by surprise.

  • Kyle Edmund (GBR) v Robin Haase (NED) [32]
  • Johanna Konta (GBR) [7] v Aleksandra Krunic (SRB)
  • Heather Watson (GBR) v Alizé Cornet (FRA)
  • Dmitry Tursunov (RUS) v Cameron Norrie (GBR)
Cameron Norrie and Heather Watson admittedly have little hope of making a serious dent in the tournament, but Kyle Edmund should fancy his chances against Robin Haase, one of the lower seeds. Jo Konta can move up the top 10 ranking if she does well in America, too.
