Osaka warns she's just getting started after beating Kerber

Defending champion Angelique Kerber lost 6-3 6-1 to teenager Naomi Osaka

The day's action was capped by a thrilling five-set epic between Federer and Tiafoe that almost saw the 19-year-old American upstart shock the Swiss sensation.

A victor of two grand slams a year ago, Kerber failed to go beyond the fourth round of a major in 2017, her latest defeat a 6-3 6-1 humbling at the hands of Osaka.

Congratulations, you just have beaten the defending U.S. Open champion and recent world No. 1.

"But for me it was for sure not the best day and not the best match". In Wimbledon I got a sunburn.

"The first set I played really well", Ostapenko said. But, I mean, it helped me through. I just barely returned the serve.

Osaka went into the match knowing that she would have to play longer and perhaps more points against a retriever and counter-puncher like Kerber than she did against the shot-maker Keys previous year.

"Maybe off the court, obviously I would like to stay there as long as I can, but not to push it and I don't want to stress myself because of this and then play".

"Yeah, at the end she plays good".

"I think because it's a new situation", Kerber said.

"I'm still the same player and the same person", said Kerber.

She sighed, shrugged her shoulders and began to answer: "I don't know". "She can hold serve and she can break serve". "She played a very good match from the beginning". "But at the end, you know, I'm always trying the best with all the things I have".

A player with only one previous Grand Slam semifinal appearance reached the first three major title matches of her career, winning two of them: The German stunned Serena Williams in the Australian Open final, lost to Williams in the Wimbledon final, and then beat Karolina Pliskova in the US Open final to rise to the top of the WTA rankings for the first time. "The second set I stepped back a little bit".

The mini-experiment failed spectacularly, but because of MS Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India managed to scrape through. Wicket-keeper batsman Niroshan Dickwella and Milinda Siriwardana will look to play a key role in the batting department.

The routine forehand error Kerber made off Osaka's return in the final game was a sad and telling punctuation mark on the confused German's year. It was a little bit hard, but I think I made it pretty okay today.

"I think it's amusing there are two former champions [in our boxes]", said Keys.

About three hours later, with persistent rain in the forecast, the tournament postponed all but one of the matches on outside courts.

In another indication of the vagaries of the world number one pursuit, second-ranked Simona Halep could take spot even though she was knocked out of the tournament by Sharapova in Monday's first round. Keys has made the round of 16 each of the last two years. "I felt the same type of nerves come up when I was up, 4-1, in this match".

After Rafael Nadal's win on Ashe earlier in the day, he complained about how noisy it is with the roof closed. Davenport is, of course, coaching Madison Keys, while Clijsters was courtside supporting her compatriot Mertens, who has trained at her academy in Bree.

The rest was the noise beneath Arthur Ashe Stadium's roof.
