The second round of the U.S. Open continues Thursday in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., as many of the favorites look to avoid an upset and advance in the year's final major tournament.
Per the usual, Arthur Ashe Court is the place to be for this tournament. Both Williams sisters, No. 23 Mardy Fish and men's top seed Roger Federer will grace the court throughout the day.
Other key singles matches include No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France against Martin Klizan of Slovakia on the men's side, and Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro looking for an upset against No. 2 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland on the women's side.
For some local flavor, Harvard University grad James Blake will face off against No. 24 Marcel Granollers of Spain on Louis Armstrong Court sometime around 5 p.m.
