There were some bumps in the road for a couple of top names, but most seeded players moved along into week two of the US Open.

These are the Top 5 photos from the New York. 


Serena Williams

The 23-time Grand Slam champion got off to a shaky start, but she didn't let it derail her. Serena rallied her way back to victory, posting a 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 score over countrywoman Sloane Stephens. 

"It was intense, I have to say," Serena said during her on-court interview. "We always have some really incredible matches. It brings out the best in my fitness when I play Sloane."

The 22-year-old American is into the round of 16 in New York for the first time in his career after dismissing Marton Fucsovics, 6-2, 6-3, 6-2. The world No. 82 will face a very tough opponent in last year's finalist Daniil Medvedev for a spot in the final eight.
