Did you know the US Open is the only Grand Slam tournament that pays its ball people? They are paid New York state’s minimum wage: $9 an hour. Getting paid to wear Ralph Lauren clothes and stand a few feet from tennis biggest names seems like a dream job, don’t you think?

Kyle Edmund, 2016 US Open

For the first time since 1968, three British male players (Andy Murray, Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans) have reached the third round of the US Open:

Said Evans: “It could easily have been different. Kyle played Gasquet. I played Ram. We both could lose those matches and could have been sat here with only Andy again. “It just happens in certain tournaments, doesn’t it, where you get through. And this week, there’s a feel-good factor. But me and Kedders have got tough matches now. We’ll see what we can do.”

Kyle Edmund faces John Isner on Friday, while Andy Murray and Dan Evans will respectively meet Paolo Lorenzi and Stan Wawrinka on Saturday.

Another good news for British tennis: Johanna Konta stormed past Belinda Bencic 6-2 6-1 to each the fourth round.
