U.S. Open 2019: How to Watch Coco Gauff, Rafael Nadal, Naomi Osaka Second Round Matches, Start times, Live Stream

Coco Gauff, Rafael Nadal and Naomi Osaka are all in action on Thursday in the second round of the U.S. Open.

Gauff, who became tennis's new rising star when she reached the second week at Wimbledon last month, takes on Hungary's Timea Babos.

Babos reached the third round at the Flushing Meadows in 2016, while Gauff only made her tournament debut two days ago.

The 15-year-old erased a one-set deficit to beat Russia's Anastasia Potapova 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 in the first round and admitted being taken aback by the experience.
"Honestly, I mean, I really don't remember the match too well," she was said in her press conference. "Because everything is still a blur."

Day 4 in the women's tournament also sees world No. 1 Naoimi Osaka in action. The defending U.S. Open champion plays Poland's Magda Linette in the morning session's second game at the Louis Armstrong Stadium.

The Japanese beat Russia's Anna Blinkova 6-4, 6-7 (5-7), 6-2 in the first round, despite making 50 unforced errors and having to fight off three break points in the final set.

Meanwhile, in the men's tournament, Nadal plays Australia's Thanasi Kokkinakis.
The Spaniard made light work of another Australian in the first round, beating John Millman 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.

On Wednesday, both Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer survived minor scares to book their places in the third round.

The world No. 1 battled through a shoulder injury to defeat Argentina's Juan Ignacio Londero 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 6-1, despite losing his serve five times.

"It was definitely affecting my serve and my backhand," the Serb said of his injury.
"I didn't know if I would be able to finish the match. I'm really glad I have."

Federer, meanwhile, came from a set down for the second consecutive match to beat Bosnia's Damir Dzumhur 3-6 6-2 6-3 6-4.

The Swiss, however, insisted he was not concerned by dropping the opening sets in both of his matches so far.

"When it happens in back-to-back matches it's a bit frustrating more than anything, especially when the level is that low and there are that many errors and the energy is not kind of there," he explained.

"But I'm not concerned because once I lose that first set I do get better, which is a good thing."

Meanwhile, there was mixed news for the Williams sisters.

Serena beat fellow American Caty McNally 5-7, 6-3, 6-1 to avert what would have been her earliest loss at the U.S. Open, while Venus lost 6-4, 6-4 to No. 5 seed Elina Svitolina.
