We're firmly into the second week of the Open and the sensory overload of big league tennis on tons of courts simultaneously is over. The action moves firmly to Ashe and the pressure ramps up.
First up in that pressure cooker are Svitolina and Konta. Svitolina won the tour finals last year and got to the semis of Wimbledon this year, so there's a good chance she's up for a breakthrough. Konta's been to three Grand Slam semis in her career, including at the French this year, so she's a very dangerous #16 seed. We've got this one marked down as the most competitive match of the day.
Next up is an old friend in Stan Wawrinka. He's been a bit off the radar since his win here three years ago but is looking very spry. We wouldn't want to be Daniil Medvedev today.
Once they're done, move over to Armstrong to check out some big names duke it out in women's doubles, as Mladenovic/Babos take on Barty/Azarenka.
Nighttime brings the big guns, of course. First up comes Serena against the surprising Qiang Wang. Expect that surprise to come to an abrupt end. Then, in a handsome-off, Roger Federer takes on Grigor Dimitrov, on of the last "new generation" that was supposed to make life difficult for Fed and the other members of the big three. That hasn't happened and don't expect it to happen tonight, though you never know.
