US Open lookahead: Nadal returns, Raducanu begins defense

NY (AP) LOOKAHEAD TO TUESDAY

Rafael Nadal plays his first U.S. Open match since 2019 when he leads off the night time session in Arthur Ashe Stadium against Australian Rinky Hijkata. Nadal won the Australian Open and French Open earlier this season, giving him a mens-record 22 Grand Slam singles titles. Then reached the semifinals at Wimbledon before needing to withdraw due to an abdominal tear, making him 19-0 in Grand Slam matches in 2022. A high Spanish player also opens your day session on Ashe, without. 3 seed Carlos Alcaraz facing Sebastian Baez of Argentina. Venus Williams then makes her go back to the tournament, facing Alison Van Uytvanck. Defending womens champion Emma Raducanu opens during the night against Aliz Cornet, who’s playing in her 63rd consecutive main draw of a Grand Slam, setting an archive in the professional era that dates to 1968. Two-time champion Naomi Osaka faces No. 19 seed Danielle Collins after Nadals match on Ashe.
