Fantastic break to love by Rebecca and she advances to the final round of US Open qualifying winning 6-2 4-6 6-4

Geez, I thought the men's qualifying match would never end - Rebecca should be up shortly.

Rebecca takes the opening set 6-3. Serving well today but equally impressive are the groundies.

We need a 3rd set as Minnen takes set 2 6-3. The Belgian has some fine ground strokes and this match is very close, Rebecca needs to take care of her service games and look for an opening on her opponent's serve.

That is huge, down love-30 on her service game and Marino gets an unforced error on a second serve and then pelts two aces and a service winner to hold. Clutch stuff right there.

Edit: Marino breaks the very next game and Minnen just received a code violation for coaching.

Edit 2: Rebecca consolidates the break - Up 1-4 in set 3

Rebecca finished that match just in time as lightning around Flushing Meadows has suspended play.

So I guess the Ben Rothenberg follow-up article struck a nerve...

18 year Dane Holger Rune has qualified for the men's main draw. Also earning his way into the men's main draw is 42 year old Dr. Ivo Karlovic.

I just took a look at the updated women's draw after the qualifiers were placed:

Rebecca Marino vs. Elina Svitolina
Leylah Fernandez vs. Ana Konjuh

Suffice it to say, both tough round 1 matchups.

Would he not have been removed if he got his shots? Does that mean if someone in Novax’s entourage tests positive, calendar slam bid is over?
