NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the U.S. Open tennis tournament (all times local):
The men’s singles semifinals highlight the day at the U.S. Open, where play on Arthur Ashe Stadium began with the men’s doubles final.
The top-seeded team of Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury were seeking a second straight U.S. Open title in that match against the No. 2 seeds, Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski.
That would be followed by the first semifinal between No. 5 Casper Ruud and No. 27 Karen Kkachanov. Ruud was trying to reach his second major final, having lost to Rafael Nadal at this year’s French Open. The other three semifinalists have all reached that level for the first time.
The night match pits No. 3 Carlos Alcaraz against No. 22 Frances Tiafoe, the first American man to reach the U.S. Open semifinals since Andy Roddick was the runner-up in 2006.
