MONDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

Scroll down for full order of play...

  • S. Stephens (USA) [3] v A. Sevastova (LAT) [19]
  • J. Del Potro (ARG) [3] v J. Isner (USA) [11]
  • S. Williams (USA) [17] v Ka. Pliskova (CZE) [8]
  • R. Nadal (ESP) [1] v D. Thiem (AUT) [9]

MATCH OF THE DAY

Williams (USA) [17] v Pliskova (CZE) [8]

Serena Williams have been threatening opponents with some exquisite play as she continues her comeback to try to regain her previous number one ranking. Karolina Pliskova is ranked eighth, nine places higher than Williams, but will be going into the game as the slight underdog.

POTENTIAL UPSET OF THE DAY

Del Potro (ARG) [3] v Isner (USA) [11]

Juan Martin Del Potro's occasional brushes with injury might undermine another tilt at a Grand Slam title. John Isner is a solid opponent, and if the Argentine's wrist is at all suspect then it could be another upset - and a hugely disappointing one - for Del Potro.
