Osaka and Blinkova meet for a third set.
The highest seeded Naomi Osaka, the defending champion, is one sentence eliminated in the first round after losing the second set against Russia's 84th Anna Blinkova at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Osaka won a match ball 6: 5 (40: 30), but then made three easy mistakes to become a draw that Blinkova won 7: 5 with their second set point.
In Louis Armstrong Stadium The eighth Stefanos Tsitsipas is also a sentence from the elimination, two sets against Andrey Rublev. This result would be less surprising as Rublev proved its potential earlier this month by beating Roger Federer in Cincinnati.
Alison Riske continues her summer boost.
Alison Riske of Pittsburgh underpinned her breakthrough at Wimbledon with a strong start to the US Open with a 2-6, 6-1, 6-3 win over former No. 1 Garbiñe Muguruza, a two-time Grand Slam champion ,
Riske, who the then No. 1 Ashleigh Barty, who reached the quarter-finals last month at Wimbledon, occupies the 36th place and could be one of the most dangerous players in the draw yet. Riske, known as Grassfield Specialist, had not won a match at the US Open for six years.
Ever since Wimbledon, Riske married Stephen Amritraj and married him to an Indian tennis dynasty. Muguruza, three years ago at the French Open and two years ago in Wimbledon champion, denied after the separation of her longtime coach Sam Sumyk their first Grand Slam event.
Naomi Osaka wins her first set of the tournament. [Native American] On Tuesday around noon, Naomi Osaka entered the arena at the Arthur Ashe Stadium to defend her women's title at the United States Open.
The scene was very different from the last game on this field year controversial final against Serena Williams. Osaka had burst into tears at this award ceremony when Boos filled the stadium in response to a dispute between Williams and the chairman Carlos Ramos.
The audience in the early afternoon for their match on Tuesday against Anna Blinkova was sparse and largely calm. as is often the case in the cave-like Ashe Stadium at this time of day.
Osaka has had another coach since last year, a suspect on the left knee and hopes to regain the excitement she had brought last year.
She followed her title in New York last September with a championship at the Australian Open in January, but she has since struggled to play at the same level. She sparked in the hardcourt season this summer and reached the quarterfinals in Toronto and Cincinnati.
Blinkova never made it past the first round at the US Open, but entered the third round at the French Open this year.
Osaka lost the first three games of the first set and immediately worried about her knee, but she rolled off five games in a row to finish the game 6-4.
The next generation of men enters the stage.
Dominic Thiem, the fourth seed in the men's draw, will follow Osaka in Ashe. He appeared to be the most promising threat to Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer's dominance of the Big Three in recent years. But he has tried to threaten them on surfaces other than clay. His hardcore title in March in Indian Wells proved he could be taken seriously, but he only played a hard-warming tournament before the Open.
25-year-old Thiem is one of the top players in the next generation of men's tennis, in action on Tuesday. The eighth Stefanos Tsitsipas faces talented young Russian Andrey Rublev, who angered Roger Federer in Cincinnati this month. The sixth Alexander Zverev plays Radu Albot. Thiem, Tsitsipas and Zverev lost in the first round of Wimbledon last month.
In a highly anticipated rematch, Denis Shapovalov (20) and Felix Auger-Aliassime (19) meet in the same round in the same place (grandstand) in the same time slot (fourth game) as they did last year. But the two young Canadians have changed roles. Last year, Shapovalov was the 28th seed and Auger Aliassime was ranked 117th. Now Auger-Aliassime is in 18th place, ahead of Shapovalov's 33rd place.
Coco Gauff is back on Tuesday.
Coco Gauff, the 15-year-old breakout star at Wimbledon, was awarded a Joker card to play in the US Open. On Tuesday afternoon (not before 3:00 pm) she will face 72nd place at the Louis Armstrong Stadium on Anastasia Potapova (18). Potapova may not be as intimidating for the first round as Venus Williams in the All England Club, but Gauff has plenty of it spoken to stay on the ground and play each game for themselves. Can she handle the loud yelling of Queens as well as the polite rustle of Wimbledon?
