The 2017 Us Open will continue on Wednesday with day-three action from Flushing Meadows. Unfortunately for tournament organizers, the day of action will feature numerous first-round matches as the tournament is a little behind schedule due to the poor weather in New York on Tuesday. However, rain or shine tennis fans can bank on the matches for Arthur Ashe Stadium to be played. The opening match on the court will feature Eugenie Bouchard while a next match will feature Maria Sharapova.

Bouchard in tough against Evgeniya Rodina

Bouchard is among the contingent of players that will be playing a match that was originally scheduled for Tuesday.

The Canadian, who did not play well in the lead-up events before Flushing Meadows, will face Evgeniya Rodina. Bouchard is the much more accomplished player. However, the Canadian has proven that she isn't a lock against the peripheral players on tour. As such Wednesday's match could be viewed as an open one. The start time for the match is 11 am ET and is not so subject to change as other matches due to the main-show-court venue.

Men's match to follow, the Sharapova time

Juan Martin del Potro will follow and then, to close the morning/afternoon session, Maria Sharapova will play in what will be her second-round match at the 2017 US Open. In a result that caused major headlines, Sharapova ousted the World No.

2 Simona Halep in the first round. Sharapova appears to have an easier match in the second round as she will face Timea Babos. Babos is 24 years old and playing in her 21st major. To date, she has not performed well in the Grand Slams with just one victory in the second round in all of her majors combined. Her current ranking for singles is 59th, and she is more known for her doubles play at this point in her career despite a career-high ranking for singles of 25th.

Sharapova's match time is not set in stone. She is third up in Arthur Ashe Stadium meaning that the length of the matches to come before her's will determine her playing time. The women's matches are usually less than 2.5 hours, but men's matches are very unpredictable regarding length due to the best-of-five set format.

Venus Williams, Elina Svitolina, Svetlana Kuznetsova, and Coco Vandeweghe are other women's players that will feature on the main courts in the singles draw on Wednesday.

Williams, Kuznetsova, and Sharapova are the only past champions remaining in the tournament following the elimination of 2016 champion Angelique Kerber on Tuesday in one of the few matches that saw completion. If the weather cooperates, the tournament might be back on schedule for Thursday. In that event, the players contesting the first round on Wednesday will be scheduled for action in consecutive days.
