The seeds continue to fall at Flushing Meadows.

Caroline Garcia rose to the occasion to sink top seed Karolina Pliskova and further decimate the women's draw at the US Open.

Novak Djokovic survived a first set shock to see off Kyle Edmund in four sets while British success continued as Cam Norrie reached the third round of a grand slam for the first time.

Here, the PA news agency looks back at day three at the US Open.

Caroline Garcia has admitted she struggled with expectation levels since been anointed as a future world number one by Andy Murray in 2011. But the French player rose to the occasion to sink top seed Karolina Pliskova in straight sets.

Comeback of the day

Move over Andy Murray. Varvara Gracheva produced one of the most stunning comebacks in grand slam history when she came back from 6-1 5-1 down, saving four match points, to beat 30th seed Kristina Mladenovic 1-6 7-6 (2) 6-0.

Mladenovic had been placed in the 'bubble within a bubble' after having contact with Benoit Paire before his positive Covid-19 test.
