Caroline Wozniacki’s fairy-tale comeback continued as she came from behind to beat American Jennifer Brady.

The 33-year-old Dane, who retired more than three years ago and has had two children, won 4-6 6-3 6-1 and is through to the second week in only her third tournament since returning to tennis.

“As a competitor and an athlete you always want to win and you have to believe in yourself, but playing here on Arthur Ashe again is a dream come true,” she said.

“When I retired three years ago and having had two kids, I thought I’d just be here watching. What an honour this is.”

There was further disappointment for the home crowd after Czech 10th seed Karolina Muchova beat another mother, the popular Taylor Townsend, 7-6 (0) 6-3.

On Saturday, four Britons are in action. Dan Evans has faces No 1 seed and defending champion Carlos Alcaraz on Arthur Ashe, while Cam Norrie meets Matteo Arnaldi.
