Serious correction of Jabeur and Osaka advances without playing

Ons Jabeur came to New York with the confidence that gave him his good performance in Wimbledon, where he equaled his best Grand Slam result by reaching the quarterfinals. That impulse was transferred by the Tunisian to her party of second round of the US Open against Colombian Maria Camila Osorio, which he swept away with an almost insulting superiority: 6-0 and 6-1 in just 55 minutes of game.

The 19-year-old Colombian, from the previous phase, paid the ‘hazing’ against a player who has firmly established herself in the top-25 of the WTA rankings in the last two years. Jabeur, correct with a serve (76% of points won with firsts) with which he did not grant any break in the match, he did not even need great displays of his tennis to overcome the shock, since Osorio did not stop chaining unforced errors throughout the match (21, for only 6 winners).

Much easier had it Naomi Osaka, who will reach the third round physically fresh by not playing her match against Olga Danilovic. According to the tournament officials, the Serb was absent for medical reasons, although everything indicates that she would have tested positive for COVID-19. The next rival of the Japanese will come out of Kanepi-Fernández.

Results, table and schedules.
