Stan Wawrinka in action

Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic will meet in the third round of the US Open after coming through their second-round matches.

Former champion Wawrinka needed four sets to see off French qualifier Ugo Humbert, winning 7-6, (7-5), 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.

Although the Swiss player was in control for most of the match, the 20-year-old Humbert did manage to break his serve on several occasions, but he never managed to get his nose in front and Wawrinka proved too solid in the end.

The three-time Grand Slam winner’s reward is a clash against 25th seed Milos Raonic, who beat Giles Simon 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in two hours and seven minutes.

One break of serve in each of the three sets was enough to earn the Canadian the win.

Daniil Medvedev won the battle of the NextGen stars as he beat 15th seeded Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 while Borna Coric secured a comfortable 7-6, (7-4), 6-2, 6-3 win over Roberto Carballes.
