Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

The seeds are (theoretically) starting to meet in the third round, with No. 4 Jessica Pegula playing No. 13 Jelena Ostapenko.

But there have been some upsets. So there are some intriguing matches involving unseeded players – including an all-Poland matchup between No. 2 Iga Swiatek and Magda Linette.

As well, Elena Rybakina meets teenaged qualifier Mirra Andreeva.

(Beijing is 12 hours ahead of ET).
