Predictably there was no such trouble for second seed Rafael Nadal, a straight-sets victor over Australian John Millman in a little over two hours.

Spanish 10th seed Roberto Bautista Agut has also crashed out in a day of upsets among the men.

'I don't know what this chair umpire has in specific against my team but he's been complaining and telling me that my team talks all of the time when I'm out on the court playing.

"For some reason you have something against me, I don't know what you have....because you're French, probably. He (Millman) showed previous year what he's able to do when he's doing well and I came on court with a lot of respect", he added.

He worked a court-eight match Monday between France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Australian Alex de Minaur and returned to Arthur Ashe Stadium on Tuesday to officiate Austrian fourth seed Dominic Thiem's loss to Italy's Thomas Fabbiano.

"I got very tired and exhausted after two sets". "That's all the reaction I can say, no?" "I don't feel like I'm chasing something".

Austrian fourth seed Thiem, a US Open quarter-finalist past year who also went out at the first hurdle at Wimbledon, was beaten by the same player who dispatched Greek sixth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the first round at Wimbledon.

Osaka must retain her Flushing Meadows crown to have a chance of remaining world number one and was tested extensively by 2015 Wimbledon junior finalist Blinkova, who raced 4-1 ahead in the first set and saved a match point in the second to force a decider.

"The chair umpire, he has something against me". Then things began to spin out of control for him when he was cited by chair umpire Damien Dumusois with a code violation for coaching. Tsitsipas claims some umpires "have preferences when they are on court".

Australian firebrand Nick Kyrgios has been assigned the "graveyard shift" as the last match on Louis Armstrong against Steve Johnson.

Denis Shapovalov was an easy victor over the 18th-seeded Auger-Aliassime, crashing the hopes of the youngster in straight sets, 6-1, 6-1, 6-4 to enter the second round. Next she will next meet Hungarian qualifier Timea Babos with top-ranked defending champion Naomi Osaka a possible third-round foe. "It was not the real me there on the court". If you play bad, you can lose. The top seed goes on to face Poland's Magda Linette. He reached the fourth round at the French Open, but he lost in the first round of Wimbledon.

"I feel much better that I could win a match finally in this tournament", Halep said.

"Am I allowed to dream big again for this tournament?" "Like this, it's very tough to win". "I'm going to take a lot of inspiration from this, try to carry it forward into what's left in my year and my tennis career".

Eighth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas has bundled out in the first round of the US Open in dramatic fashion - and fourth seed Dominic Thiem followed suit on a shocking day in NY.
