Amazon Prime are having a chat with Jack Draper, who beat Félix Auger-Aliassime yesterday.

“I’m really proud … to do it on this stage will stick in my mind for a long time,” says Draper. “I remember when I was maybe 12, I was watching Murray play on Louis Armstrong and “Ashe” … so to be out there on this stage … it’s special.”

I want to go to bed,” Emma Raducanu said, smiling, as the subject of her press conference shifted to her next plans and goals after she had been usurped in the first round at the US Open as the defending champion. Just over an hour after her defeat by Alizé Cornet, Raducanu had arrived wearing a cap angled low, covering her face, still processing all that had unfolded that evening.”

And here, if you missed it, is the report of Coco Gauff’s win against Elena-Gabriela Ruse:

Here are yesterday’s reports – ones that dropped overnight in the UK, at any rate:

Preamble

Following Jack Draper’s eye-catching win against Felix Auger-Aliassime last night, there is plenty more to pique the interest of British fans at the US Open today, beginning with Dan Evans v James Duckworth from 4pm UK time.

The unseeded Duckworth is ranked No 83 and if Evans, seeded 20th, can replicate the form he showed in a straight-sets first-round win against Jiri Vesely, he should not have too many problems. Ditto the seventh-seeded Cameron Norrie who is in second-round action against Joao Sousa of Portugal (6pm UK time).

Meanwhile in the women’s singles the world No 1, Iga Swiatek, springs back into action against Sloane Stephens on Arthur Ashe Stadium from 5pm UK time, which will be a match to keep a close eye on. Paula Badosa (4) is up against Petra Martic at 5.15pm UK time, before Garbine Muguruza (9) meets Linda Fruhvirtova from 7.15pm.

What better way to kick things off than Tumaini Carayol on Serena Williams’s second-round success against Annett Kontaveit:
