Halep, Medvedev draw early duty at US Open

Two-time Grand Slam champion Simona Halep and Russian second seed Daniil Medvedev will start US Open matches on Sunday at Arthur Ashe Stadium trying to reach the quarter-finals.

Romanian 12th seed Halep, the 2018 French Open and 2019 Wimbledon winner, will meet Ukraine’s fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina in the first afternoon match.

Svitolina, a 2019 US Open semi-finalist, leads their rivalry 5-4 after winning their most recent match at the 2019 WTA Finals. But it’s her only win in their four hardcourt meetings.

Medvedev, this year’s Australian Open runner-up and a 2019 US Open runner-up, will face British 24th seed Daniel Evans, who hopes to reach his first Grand Slam quarter-final.
