US Open day 2 recap: Serena and Murray's records, Zverev squabble with Medvedev!

How many emotions at the US Open 2020 day 2! Andy Murray, with Todd Martin, has become the player capable of signing the most comebacks (nine) from a two-set gap in a Grand Slam tournament. The last came against Yoshihito Nishioka, in the first round of the New York Major.

All easy for Serena Williams: the American impressed with her psycho-physical state of form. Could it be the right time? Victories also for Dominic Thiem, Marin Cilic, Milos Raonic, Grigor Dimitrov, Daniil Medvedev, Victoria Azarenka, Sloane Stephens, Garbine Muguruza and Elise Mertens.

Apparently, the communication of Benoit Paire's positivity to the coronavirus was not made known to the other participants of the tournament by the management of the event and this sparked the anger of Alexander Zverev: "The only thing that the USTA does not handled well is the fact of the news of Paire's situation, "he said.

Zverev revealed to Eurosport that the Russian Daniil Medvedev, who came into contact with Benoit Paire in recent days, would have been subjected to isolation and would therefore not have the possibility to leave his apartment.

However, Gilles Cervara, Medvedev's coach, denied it all: the Russian has not made contact with Paire and for this reason he will certainly have no problems continuing to train or even play.

Suarez Navarro's drama, Roger Federer's earnings

Carla Suarez Navarro has communicated through her social profiles that she has been affected by a malignant tumor affecting the lymphatic system, known as Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

It is a relatively rare tumor, but one that has already hit Kleybanova and Hutchins in the tennis world, winners of the fight for life. About 4 people for every 100,000 inhabitants contract Hodgkin's lymphoma. The Spanish tennis player will now have to undergo six months of chemotherapy and will try with all her strength to win the most important match of her life.

Once again Roger Federer is the highest earning tennis player in the world. The Swiss legend is the sportsman with the most earnings and consequently it is certainly not surprising that he is the tennis player with the most earnings in the world, this for even the 15 consecutive year.

Federer leads this ranking with 106.3 million euros, even doubling his eternal rivals, Novak Djokovic second on the list who has received 44.6 million in the last 12 months and Rafael Nadal, third at 40 million. Naomi Osaka is the first woman in the standings, in fourth place with 37.4 followed by the 36 received by the 23-time Grand Slam champion with 36 million.
