US Open Day 8 - Heat causes havoc as big names fall
After Iga Swiatek’s exit on Sunday, the tournament had a different feel on Monday, and all the more so when Jessica Pegula and Ons Jabeur followed her out of the tournament.
Catherine, David and Matt discuss that, review great performances from Zheng Qinwen and Madison Keys, take stock of Pegula’s career, and review the men’s matches which included Carlos Alcaraz putting on a show and Alexander Zverev winning a gruelling battle with Jannik Sinner as the humidity took its toll on both players.
