Get ready for Pliskova v Pegula – Chapter V, as another big day of play gets under way – a little late – n Cincinnati.

Meanwhile, Porsche Court 10 (which for the first few days of the tournament wasn’t even a TV court for many providers) will host three women who have won Grand Slam titles: Barbora Krejcikova and Garbiñe Muguruza (who will play each other) and Petra Kvitova.

It’s a big lineup, with No. 1 Ashleigh Barty and No. 2 Naomi Osaka on the stadium court.
