First set: Raducanu 1-0 Cornet* (* indicates server)

It’s Cornet to serve and she wins the first match point when her opponent slams a forehand into the net. But she double-faults a few points later to give Raducano a 15-30 lead. Another double fault – his ball tossing off looks – gives the Brit a break at 30-40 but it’s saved with a great crash at the net. Someone somewhere is leaving what looks like an air horn, which could be it. a little Annoying when you’re serving in a Grand Slam. Raducanu has said that she plans to attack during the tournament and produces a stunning backhand when Cornet has the advantage to bring us back to deuce. A few points later, Cornet sent a backhand long. The champion is broken at the first opportunity..

And Raducanu and Cornet are now in court. The defending champion gets the biggest cheers as he enters from the fans. The stadium is still half-empty as evening session fans slowly file in. There is a chance of rain later in the evening, but the roof is retractable at Louis Armstrong Stadium so we should be fine.

On Arthur Ashe, Nadal puts Hijikata up 2-1 but we’re still on serve.

Nadal has started his campaign with ease, holding his first service game to love. Hijikata, dressed in patriotic gold and green, goes down 15-30 before coming back to catch himself.

Raducanu v Cornet will start a bit later. Since the last match of the afternoon session on Louis Armstrong was long, they need to change the afternoon fans for the evening. We shouldn’t be too long though.

We’re still waiting for the players to hit the court, but ESPN is showing a Dior ad starring Emma Raducanu. She’s not playing tennis in it, just selling some skin cream. Still, I’m sure she’ll be doing her day job soon enough.

Elsewhere, Rafa Nadal warms up for his opener at the Arthur Ashe. He plays Australian Rinke Hijikata as the Spaniard goes for his 23rd Grand Slam title.

Humidity testing in New York: It’s been another muggy, humid day in New York City** but it’s starting to cool off this evening with a breeze. Your intrepid reporter visited several locations around the city this morning and can confirm that today’s trash smells mainly of fish sauce. I’m not sure if there really was a massive spill, or if the smell is just a result of garbage and today’s environmental conditions. Anyway, I’m sure the US Open has the resources to spread the stink to more areas of Long Island.

** New York City is also a wonderful city to visit, with many cultural, artistic and culinary attractions. And smells good most days.

Of course, a lot of action has already taken place today. In the men’s draw, Raducanu’s fellow Britons, Cameron Norrie and Dan Evans, eased into the second round:

In the women’s tournament, Venus Williams remained tight-lipped about her future after a first-round exit. She has barely played last year due to injury and lost in straight sets to Belgium’s Alisson van Utvanck on Tuesday. While her sister, Serena, has said she is retiring Venus, there is no word yet on her future.

“Right now I’m just focused on the doubles,” she said after today’s defeat, referring to Thursday’s match, where she will play her sister. There is a possibility that this could be the last professional match of the two sisters’ illustrious careers.

Cornet is such a tough player. As you’re going to find out in the unseeded ranks at this year’s tournament. The 32-year-old is world number 40, and is incredibly difficult to break down, which could cause problems for Raducanu after being determined to come out and attack at Flushing Meadows this year.

The Frenchwoman has been in pretty good form this season: she has beaten three women holding the world No. 1 ranking – Iga Swiatek, Simona Halep and Garbiñe Muguruza – at this year’s Grand Slams so far. Oh, and he’s durable: Tonight will be his 63rd consecutive Grand Slam appearance – An all-time record.

good evening. Emma Raducanu defends her title at Queen’s this evening, and while she’s been given a prestigious evening spot, she’s playing on the US Open’s No. 2 court, Louis Armstrong Stadium. That’s because some guy named Rafael Nadal is on Arthur Ashe, which is probably justified when you’ve won 22 Grand Slam singles titles.

The 19-year-old Briton has a mixed lead in the tournament. On the one hand, she has recent encouraging victories against Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka, but on the other hand she has also had some minor injuries.

“I had some little things, I got a couple of blisters, a little bruise here and there,” Reducano said Friday after a tough practice session. “It’s one of those weird days where you just don’t feel… I don’t know. You just feel a little out of it. I can’t explain it, to be honest. I’m sure in that room. Everyone present has probably had a similar day. Yes, it is what it is.”
