"I don't care", Tsitsipas replied. They wanted to stay more reserved, too. "I didn't know if I would be able to finish the match".
"Because you're French probably and you're all weirdos".
"I've still got a story. I hope we do see each other in the future", Gauff said, "but hopefully in the finals, not in the first round". I'm thinking about my next match, and I know it's either going to be Coco or Babos. "I believe he's not right, because I never hear anything of what my team says from the outside". I needed more positive energy. "I think I did a really good job with that today".
He said Dumusois's warnings had affected his performance. Tsitsipas told the official, who already had warned him about getting coaching help, to go ahead and call him for a violation; Dumusois obliged, docking a point.
She also wore a target, of sorts, as she tries to become the first woman to win back-to-back U.S. Open titles since Williams won three in a row from 2012-14.
Naomi Osaka was given a testing workout by Anna Blinkova as she began the defence of her US Open title yesterday but the world number one's power and shot making ultimately proved too much as she prevailed 6-4 6-7 (5) 6-2.
The 21 year-old played with a support on her left knee but her movement looked comfortable throughout.
Eleven years later, Kristie Ahn finally got back into the U.S. Open.
Wimbledon champion Simona Halep, ousted in the opening round the past two years at Flushing Meadows, beat U.S. lucky loser Nicole Gibbs 6-3, 3-6, 6-2. But she answered with a dominant service game to regain a 5-4 advantage, and she had the entire crowd at Flushing Meadows behind her.
When asked about the decision not to allow Portuguese umpire Carlos Ramos to officiate her matches in NY following their infamous row, Williams said: "I do not know who that is".
Later Tuesday night, Nadal swept Australian John Millman 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. Gauff, who had a total of 42 unforced errors in the two-hour clash, the bulk of which came in the opening set, threw desperate glances at her box, where her parents Candi and Corey, both successful athletes, sat stunned as the scoreboard showed 3-0.
Millman caused the upset of the tournament previous year when he beat Roger Federer in the fourth round before losing to Novak Djokovic in the last eight.
Gauff fought again from a set down towards fellow junior main victor Anastasia Potapova to ebook her spot within the second spherical of the US Open, a lot to the delight of the American crowd.
"I feel much better that I could win a match finally in this tournament", Halep said. "You want to go out with the boat or anything, I can help you, just let me know'".
Up next for Nadal will be Australian wildcard Thanasi Kokkinakis. Stephens was the 2017 U.S. Open champion. In fact, a first round record four Top 10 men's seeds were upset on Tuesday.
He did not have it easy, though. It was only in the final set then that the German finally managed to stamp his authority to close out the match. Gauff excitedly responded that Obama was an "inspiration" to her.
Should he cash in on his good fortune, Popyrin could face countryman Jordan Thompson for a spot in the second week.
