Stephens most certainly handled the occasion better, claiming the last eight games and making only six unforced errors – Keys had 30 – in the entire minute mismatch. Keys, 22, and Stephens, 24, have known each other for years. They texted and spoke on the phone early in , when both sat out the Australian Open because of operations – Keys on her left wrist, Stephens on her left foot. When the match ended, they met at the net for a long hug. While waiting for the trophy ceremony to begin, Stephens walked over and plopped herself down in a courtside chair next to Keys, so they could chat side-by-side. Under a clear blue sky, in unseasonably cool conditions in the 60s, the 15th-seeded Keys came out pounding her serves, as usual, producing two aces in her opening game and cranking up the speed to kmh in her second.

Genius of a man and a recovering alcoholic. We were seated on the stoop of a house, our backs leaning against the wall, listening to the droning eulogies. He turned and studied me briefly and for a moment I thought he was going to ask me to go and sit with my peers over there. His face — ravaged by years of drinking — was like an old canvas of liquid history; puffed lips, red eyes, sloppy look, scars from falls in ditches, from running into stationary obstacles and, probably, into a few fists.
When he answered me it was a simple answer but with so many layers:

But it’s not the case at this moment. For sure I will try to make winners with my forehands and don’t run too much, because my legs are tired. Roger Federer conceded he was not in the right shape to challenge for another Grand Slam title as the elusive US Open clash with Rafael Nadal slipped away again.

Five of the world’s top 11 players will be absent from the field, with world number two Andy Murray the latest to join the long list of absentees. Last year’s finalists, Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka have already pulled the plugs on their seasons, so has Kei Nishikori, while Milos Raonic misses out because of a left wrist injury.

Svetlana hits her topspin forehand with a western “frying pan” grip, but she really puts her legs into it, giving the ball plenty of speed.

Williams will be playing in her third Grand Slam since coming back from a difficult pregnancy last year. In just her second attempt, she made it to the Wimbledon final, only to be swept by Angelique Kerber. If she’s to get back to a final, it won’t be for lack of competition.

Because she is important. Clinging to that illusion, neither partner really sees the other, or even acknowledges that the other has hidden, private selves. Implicit in the arrangement was the understanding that each person has an alternative self; and yet it was all in the name of the kind of committed relationship that Mitchell believed would yield the most happiness and personal growth. I started to feel less baffled by the boldness they were showing in opening up their marriages, and more questioning of my own total aversion to the possibility.
In interview transcripts, I saw that I was forever apologizing for my own conventionality.
Women’s No 2 seed Caroline Wozniacki faces US Open champion Sam Stosur in the first round. Sloane Stephens, the defending champion, is the No 3 seed and could face former No 1 Victoria.
Karolina Pliskova heads to Flushing Meadows as world No1 — but has never won a grand slam title. She was on holiday in Monaco when it happened and only found out about her new status after checking to see if Simona Halep had won her Wimbledon quarter-final against Johanna Konta. The Romanian would have become the new world No1 if she had won the title in Cincinnati. Halep has to keep believing, though.
Her outstanding defensive qualities, waspish groundstrokes and ability to hustle her opponents make her a strong contender — but can the world No2 rise to the occasion in the biggest matches? After that victory the world No3 admitted that she sometimes struggles to find motivation for the smaller events, causing her ranking to fluctuate and making her level hard to read. Yet there is widespread agreement that she possesses the weapons to dominate her rivals and the French Open champion sent out an intimidating message with that focused demolition of Halep in Cincinnati.
If everything clicks in New York, she will be very difficult to stop. Plenty of good judges believe it is only a matter of time before the Ukrainian wins her first grand slam title. She has won five titles this year, triumphing in Montreal thanks to a resounding victory over Caroline Wozniacki, and the world No4 is in fine shape going into the US Open. The caveat is that so far she has come up short in the majors, with two quarter-finals at the French Open the best Svitolina has to show for her efforts.
She has never been past the third round at Flushing Meadows and lost in the fourth round at Wimbledon last month.
