Friday at the 2017 US Open was all about the draw ceremony led by 2016 champion Angelique Kerber and 2014 champion Marin Cilic. Spectators got to witness the reveal of an absolute stunner of a first-round match between wildcard entry Maria Sharapova and world No.2 Simona Halep, who had narrowly missed out on becoming world No.1 in Cincinnati last Sunday. Our photographer Jimmie48 was there to bring us coverage from the exciting draw ceremony, as well as from the third round of WTA qualifying action.
