The Japanese Naomi osaka classified without playing Wednesday to the third round of US Open due to the previous withdrawal of her rival, while the Spanish-Venezuelan Garbiñe Muguruza and the russian Daniil Medvedev achieved triumphs on a day marked by rain in New York.
A disease of the young Serbian Olga Danilovic allowed Osaka, defending champion, sidestepping her Open second-round commitment, where the rain caused numerous delays and interruptions of matches.
Just an hour from the start of the clash between Osaka and Danilovic, the organizers of the Open reported that the young Serbian tennis player withdrew “for a medical reason“, without giving more details.
“I’m very sad to have to withdraw from my game this morning, “Danilovic later said on his Instagram account., ruling out that their abandonment is related to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I have been feeling bad these last days due to a viral illness not related to covid“, he claimed.
Osaka will face the Canadian in the third round Leylah Fernandez, who won the estonia Kaia kanepi double 7-5.
The Japanese star pursues his third crown of the Opened, and fifth title of Grand slam, of the last four years.
