    James Ward, seeded 16 in QFing, goes out in first round to M. Yani of the USA, ranked 208, 7-6 and 6-4 after being a break up in the first set.

    Laura for a change plays somebody YOUNGER than herself tomorrow, the 15 year-old US Taylor Townsend (ranked 592). Obvious chances there.... Fifth on court 4, first match 11:00 a.m. local time.

    Naomi Broady 5th on v. Laura Thorpe (229) or Kai-Chen Change (22 in QFing and 139).

    2 and 1/2 hours to go before the draw.

    it looks like it may be live on US Open tennis radio. Fingers crossed we can get that in the UK.
