Stephens subdues Osaka in a marathon

  • Sloane Stephens has backed a change to the rule banning on-court coaching in Grand Slams

Both players are making their debut appearances at the tournament, but Stephens appeared to be more composed while Osaka, who became the first Japanese citizen to win a Grand Slam title last month in NY, never seemed comfortable.

"Honestly, beginning of the second was just like hopefully I can get a few more games".

In a match between the last two U.S. Open champions, Sloane Stephens came out on top. "I knew she's been playing well and I'd have to play really good tennis to beat her". She reached her second career Grand Slam final at this year's French Open, and won the Miami title. A subdued Osaka could not unleash her powerful game and grew frustrated as Stephens drew first blood.

Stephens was growing in confidence as Osaka battled her emotional demons and the American fittingly sealed the opener on her third set point, when the world number four sent another backhand into the net. But Osaka appeared to be mentally worn out and only managed to hold serve in the third game of the final set.

"So I think that the fact that you get another chance to learn from your mistakes and apply it in the matches going on is something that's really good". "I think that this tournament is really special in that way, because there is no other tournament during the year that does a round-robin format", she said. "Being nervous is better than feeling what I felt today, which is sort of like I want to win really bad", she said.

The pair traded several breaks of serve in the first set but Stephens, 25, edged it 7-5 in 52 minutes. "We decided I should go a little bit more for my shots and be more aggressive". Kerber, a finalist here in 2016, finally held in the ninth game, but couldn't prevent Bertens from serving out the match.

In the group's second match, German top seed Angelique Kerber suffered a shock 1-6 6-3 6-4 defeat by Kiki Bertens, who confirmed her reputation as a conqueror of leading players. "I just stayed tough and took my opportunities".
