Pablo Carreno Busta
Carreno Busta has been in excellent form in the run-up to the year's last Grand Slam. In Montreal, he won his first Masters 1000 championship, defeating Jannik Sinner and Hubert Hurkacz.
This season, the Spaniard has 29 victories and 18 defeats. In the first round at Flushing Meadows, he faced 2020 US Open winner Dominic Thiem.
Carreno Busta got off to a sluggish start and lost an early break, but recovered to win the first set 7-5. He controlled the second set but lost the third, giving Thiem hope.
He recovered in time to win the match 7-5, 6-1, 5-7, 6-3.
Bublik faced Hugo Gaston in the first round, which was a difficult encounter. The Frenchman is recognised for his unconventional playing style, which includes several slices and drop shots.
However, the Kazakh was clinical throughout the match, defeating Gaston in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.
