US Open 2023: Murray, Jabeur, Medvedev and Boulter in action on day two – live | US Open Tennis 2023

new balance


Key events

On Court 5, Berrettini – as brutal a floater as you’ll find – has already broken Humbert, seeded 29, and leads 2-0, while Osorio nets to give Jabeur 1-0, also with a break, and Boulter holds through deuce for 1-1 against Parry.

Boulter and Parry have met once, earlier this year in Indian Wells; Boulter won 4 and 2.

And off we go…

Ah in less good context: it may be that I can only watch one match at a time. If so, I’m on the Ons match and the Boulter match. I guess it’s good for people who’d otherwise have paid for Amazon, having already paid for Sky, that coverage is back on the latter, but if we can’t watch all the matches we want, it’s a way less good service.

Ah man, it’s great to see Martina on our screens and looking in good health. And how unsurprising to learn that she approached Jabeur after the Wimbledon final offer reassurance that a major is coming. She does, though, note that you never really get over defeats of that ilk. Ouch.

Looking at our early matches, I reckon I’ll start off watching Jabeur [5] v Osorio, Alexandrova [22] v Fernandez and Boulter v Parry and see how we go.
