walkover 1

Naomi Osaka advanced to the third round of the U.S. Open by walkover Wednesday after her opponent, 20-year-old Serbian qualifier Olga Danilovic, withdrew for an undisclosed medical reason.

Osaka, the third seed, is trying to become the first back-to-back U.S. Open winner since Serena Williams won her third in a row in 2014. Williams is not playing the tournament this year because of a torn hamstring.

Next up for Osaka will be the winner of a match later between Estonia’s Kaia Kanepi and Canadian Leylah Fernandez. Both players are unseeded.
