US Open 2022 order of play: Day 6 schedule including Rafael Nadal, Iga Swiatek and Danielle Collins

The US Open continues today as we head into the first weekend of the New York-based tournament. And there are a host of star names in action on the opening Saturday.

Rafael Nadal is the headline player as the Spaniard looks to fully overcome an abdominal injury and capitalise on Novak Djokovic’s absence to extend his lead in the battle for most men’s singles grand slams.

After the disappointment for the home crowd at Serena Williams’ exit and quite possibly the end of her career at the hands of Croatian-Australian Ajla Tomljanovic, attention turns to Danielle Collins.

A huge stage for the American awaits late tonight against Alize Cornet, who ended Emma Raducanu’s US Open title defence.

Cameron Norrie is in action against 28th seed Holger Rune, while there are more contenders in the men's singles returning in the shape of Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner.

Here is all you need to know about Saturday’s schedule.
