US Open Men’s Seeds in Danger

Day 2 saw Tsitispas and Bautista Agut knocked out- which men’s seeds could be saying goodbye to New York on day 3.

Coric (12) Vs Dimitrov

Coric has been injury struck and is low on match play; Dimitrov is going under the radar (ranked 78) and has lost his last two matches to a player of the caliber of Wawrinka so while he may not be winning a lot, he’s been going up against one of the few active slam champs in the game.

With both men relatively under played and getting their games back together, this really could go either way.

Both men have very different games and the hard courts even things up a little. Interestingly, this is their first match.

Cristian Garin (31) Vs Alex de Minaur

de Minaur got his North American Summer Swing off to a great start winning in Atlanta and then after first round losses maaking the Cincy last 16.

Ranked 38, de Minaur is a tough draw for Garin in the 31st seed’s breakout season.

The Chilean had a gritty five set win over Eubanks in round 1, what he may have needed after going 2-2 this Summer with a match, his first, with de Minaur on the cards.

de Minaur will run and run and could keep Garin out there a long time, and his hard court skills and tenacity means he has a nice chance of sending Garin out of the tournament.
