American teen CiCi Bellis is sticking around a little longer at the U.S. Open this time.

"I'm very, very disappointed right now", the 23-year-old Vesely said. And in his first-round U.S. Open victory over Jerzy Janowicz, Djokovic received treatment on his right arm and served much slower.

Anderson won the next two sets comfortably to advance to the third round.

Fifth seed and Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic was knocked out of the US Open by American qualifier Ryan Harrison on Wednesday.

In other action, two-time U.S. Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki beat a top-10 opponent for the first time in almost a year, turning things around after dropping the first four games and eliminating 2004 U.S. Open champion champ Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4, 6-4.

The one-sided contest was perhaps most memorable for the first closing of the new USA dollars 150million roof in Arthur Ashe Stadium, after rain began to fall during the second set.


Until Monday, he hadn't won any main-draw match at any major since the 2013 French Open.

Novak Djokovic will get a couple of extra days to rest up from his various ailments.

The 57th-ranked Lucic-Baroni upset second-seeded Simona Halep in the third round in 2014.

Britain's Johanna Konta, the 13th seed, collapsed on court with heat sickness before completing a 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 win over Bulgaria's Tsvetana Pironkova.

As medical staff attended to her, she told them her heart started racing and she felt as though she was in shock. The tennis center is located in Flushing Meadows, in the New York City borough of Queens.

"It's exciting to have a big win like this at a slam", Harrison said.


"I think that added a little bit more (stress) than I normally have to deal with and I think that caught up to me throughout that match". Nadal was the first player to practice under the roof and tonight he became the first player to finish a match beneath the roof.

Also starting Wednesday: second-round play in women's competition.

He took off Tuesday then had more inflammation Wednesday morning. He's coming off his best performance at a major, a run to the round of 16 at Wimbledon that included another win over a top-10 player in Dominic Thiem. The top-ranked Djokovic had faced a potentially tricky matchup with Jiri Vesely, who defeated him last spring in their only meeting.

Second seed Angelique Kerber and 2015 U.S. Open runner-up, Roberta Vinci, cruised into the third round.

Croatian seventh seed Marin Cilic, the 2014 champion, made the last 32 by seeing off Sergiy Stakhovsky 6-1, 6-2, 6-3.

The left-handed Vesely retired from his last match before the U.S. Open because of problems with the forearm.
