How to watch the US Open day two: Emma Raducanu, Rafael Nadal and Iga Swiatek in action

A fully focused Emma Raducanu US Open

Emma Raducanu will begin her US Open defence in the second day’s evening session on the Louis Armstrong Stadium court.

It might be a bit of late night for fans of the young brit at least back at home, with her contest against France’s Alize Cornet set to get underway shortly after midnight UK time.

The action on the Louis Armstrong Stadium Court, Grandstand and outer courts gets underway at 16:00 BST while centre court opens at midday New York time (17:00 BST).

Opening the action on the big stage is the match between third seed Carlos Alcaraz and Sebastian Baez.

Alcaraz and Baez have met just once before with the Spaniard defeating the Argentinian at the ATP Next Gen Finals last season.

Venus Williams is likely to get a great reception on centre court as her sister dominates the headlines; the 42-year-old faces Belgium’s Alison van Uytvanck in the second match in the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

First up at the Louis Armstrong Stadium will be top seed and World No 1 Iga Swiatek taking on Jasmine Paolini of Italy.

Swiatek has a vastly superior record to Paolini this season both overall and especially on hard courts but the women’s draw has already seen several notable upsets.

US No 1 Jessica Pegula commences her bid for a maiden Major title against Viktorija Golubic of Switzerland in the opening match of day two on the Grandstand court.

Pegula’s recent form suggests she could be good for at least a last eight appearance if not a deeper run if she can find her level early.

Three of the four matches on the Grandstand court feature home players with John Isner taking on Argentina’s Federico Delbonis in the second match on the ‘third’ court while Amanda Anisimova faces Kazakhstan’s Yulia Putintseva to round off the schedule for the day.

Former US Opne champion Marin Cilic will also be on the Grandstand Court facing Germany’s Maximilian Marterer.

On the outside, the intimate Court 17 has a tasty offering with Grigor Dimitrov, Petra Kvitova, Paula Badosa and Frances Tiafoe all getting up close and personal on the most recent addition to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Back on the big stage for the start of the evening session will be Rafael Nadal whose opponent Rinky Hijikata will get his first taste of the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The second match of the evening session is a blockbuster clash between Naomi Osaka and Danielle Collins which is likely to split the crowd.

At the secondary stadium court, Raducanu will headline the evening session against Cornet and will be followed by Diego Schwartzman vs Jack Sock.
