    US Open 2021: Top Seeds Djokovic, Barty Unbeaten till Now

    US Open 2021 has plenty of action and drama. The world No. 1s Novak Djokovic and Ashleigh Barty remain unbeaten and are following a trend of seeded success on the stadium courts.

    But it was more complicated on the busy field courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, where No. 9 seed Pablo Carreno Busta became the highest-profile exit of Round 1 after losing a fifth-set tiebreak to American qualifier Maxime Cressy at the US Open 2021.

    Highlights of the Day 2 of the US Open 2021.

    • Top seeds Djokovic & Barty advance
    • 2019 champion Andreescu survives in three
    • American men making a statement

    The big names played big across Ashe, Louis Armstrong Stadium, and the Grandstand. The first nine matches on those three stages finished in straight sets, all in favor of the favorites.

    On the women’s side at the US Open 2021, Barty, Karolina Pliskova, Iga Swiatek, Petra Kvitova, Belinda Bencic and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova all sailed through, with only the Aussie Barty pushed as far as a tiebreak. The reigning Wimbledon champ prevented any further drama by sealing a 6-1, 7-6 win over Vera Zvonareva, taking the breaker, 9-7.

    Across two days of opening-round play, all of the women’s Top 20 seeds advanced.
