Qualifiers placed in US Open main draws

It took rather longer than expected, as a lightning warning shut down play for awhile. Then the rain hit.

But by 9:30 p.m. Friday, Olga Danilovic of Serbia had defeated American Caroline Dolehide 6-4, 0-6, 6-2 and the US Open qualifying was complete.

Next step was placing the qualifiers in the main draw.

And world No. 1 Novak Djokovic got an intriguing matchup with 18-year-old up-and-comer Holger Rune of Denmark.

Unfortunately, the news wasn’t great for the Canadian women.

Qualifier Rebecca Marino got No. 5 seed Elina Svitolina. (The next qualifier down the list, Rebeka Masarova, drew … Ana Bogdan).

And Leylah Fernandez, who was waiting to see which qualifier she would play, got former top-20 Croat Ana Konjuh.

Here are the qualifiers – and their first-round opponents – in alphabetical order.
