16443: Hmmm, a couple of double-faults do Jankovic few favours and, after an error-strewn game by the fourth-seeded Serbian, Kaia Kenepi has the first set in the bag at 6-2.

1641: I don't have a wind graphic (although I'm sure a few of you could suggest a few images) but there is a bit of a breeze swirling around Flushing Meadows. It seems to be causing Jelena Jankovic a few problems too - she is 2-5 down and serving to stay in this first set.

randalthor1812 on Twitter: "I don't want to rain on your parade but most interesting match for me is the Sharapova match against Capra. Can Capra shock again?"

Sharapova, the 2006 US Open champion, is next on Arthur Ashe after Jankovic/Kanepi... home hope Capra, 18, is ranked 371st in the world but upset Aravane Rezai in the last round. Should be worth watching, that one.

1634: Robin Soderling is well on top against Thiemo de Bakker, and has just taken the first set 6-2 in less than 30 minutes. Elsewhere, Jelena Jankovic is in a spot of bother against Kaia Kanepi, trailing 4-2 in the first set.

1630: I need you lot to get involved today too of course. Serve me up some of your tennis wit and wisdom on Twitter, text me on 81111 (UK) or 44 7786200666 (worldwide) or get involved on 606. I'm waiting...

1625: We are under way on Grandstand now too, where 17th seed Gael Monfils of France is taking on Janko Tipsarevic, who beat Andy Roddick in the second round. That one is on serve at 1-1 - I'll keep you posted on any foot faults in that one...

1622: No bagels for now. Seconds after I wrote the below, De Bakker held for the first time and then had two break points of his own. Soderling survived, however, and leads 4-1 in the first set.

A bagel
1618: Hmmm, thanks Pottiella but I'm not sure everyone will be so forgiving when I mention the possibility of RobSod dishing out a bagel to Thiemo de Bakker... The Swede is now 3-0 up.

From pottiella on 606: "To Bevan - it's ok, we won't judge you on the weather puns... they had to be done... I almost started my blurb with one myself, but I didn't want to steal your inevitable thunder."

1612: Jelena Jankovic (on Arthur Ashe against Kaia Kanepi) and Robin Soderling (on Louis Armstrong against Thiemo de Bakker) are already out on court, and RobSod has made a pretty good start, breaking de Bakker in his first service game to lead 2-0.

1606: We've got a busy day ahead of us, and no mistake. As well as Fed and Djoko, Robin Soderling, Gael Monfils, Mardy Fish, Jurgen Melzer, Caroline Wozniacki, Jelena Jankovic, Maria Sharapova, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Vera Zvonareva are all going to be in action. Very much a Super Saturday, I'm sure you'll agree (although that is actually not until next week).

1600 BST: So much for Hurricane Earl then - it got a bit windy at Flushing Meadows last night, but that was about it. Dustin Brown also failed to cause a storm as Andy Murray breezed through but will Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic be blown off course today? We will find out over the next few hours, when I will be doing my best to avoid using any more woeful weather puns.
