US Open Day 1 – Men’s singles final results

As soon as the qualifiers are decided and placed, the US Open officials get to work on finalizing the schedule for Day 1.

And the day matches on Arthur Ashe aren’t too surprising, for both the men and the women.

Félix Auger-Aliassime threw the schedule all out of whack as he needed exactly four hours to defeat qualifier Evgeny Donskoy in four sets.

And the comebacks from two sets to none down were legion.
