The US Open started a few hours ago - nice match on now between John Isner & Frances Tiafoe

About to play the 4th set

The first men’s match on the new Grandstand court will be a an all-American battle of generations. Isner, 30, and Tiafoe, 18, have never played, but their rankings—Isner is 22nd, Tiafoe 124th—would lead you to believe that their first meeting won’t be all that competitive. Tiafoe’s most recent form, in a straight-set loss to Taylor Fritz last week in Winston-Salem, would also lead you to that conclusion. But for anyone interested in how the heavily hyped Tiafoe handles the Grand Slam stage, this will be a must-watch match. He’s 6’1”, but is that enough height to fight off Isner’s towering kick serves? It won’t be easy
