An incredibly deep field has caused almost every match to be a must-see event at the 2014 U.S. Open.

After a number of surprising results on Day 1 in New York City, the action continued with some big upsets in the early part of Day 2. Considering a 15-year-old competitor won a match, it really seems like anything is possible.

While there are still notable matches left for Tuesday night, here is a recap from the early morning and afternoon matches from the U.S. Open.

Notable Results

Catherine Bellis def. No. 12 Dominika Cibulkova 6-1, 4-6, 6-4

Darron Cummings/Associated Press

When you are a 15-year-old amateur at the U.S. Open, simply participating in a Grand Slam should be a major thrill. No one actually expects you to win, let alone against a seeded player.

However, that is exactly what CiCi Bellis did on Tuesday. She got out to a hot start against her competitor, winning 10 of 11 first-serve points in a 6-1 first-set win. After losing the second, she kept her confidence and came back with a narrow win against Dominika Cibulkova.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, this is something no one has done in a while:

Bellis was still stunned about what happened long after the match, via Lynn Zinser of The New York Times:

I went into the match thinking it was going to be such a great experience, but I never thought I would come out on top winning. I’m still in shock about that match.

It’s crazy to think that I’m actually here right now with all these other people. I mean, I never thought I would be practicing or sharing a court with, you know, a player that I watch on TV frequently. I mean, it’s crazy. But I love it.

The American came into the day ranked 1,208th in the world, making this upset that much more impressive. Then again, it seems likely she will rise much higher over the next few years.

ESPN's Darren Rovell points out that as an amateur, Bellis will not make any money from this event:

Still, this will remain a memorable event to kick-start what could be a brilliant career.

 

No. 17 Roberto Bautista Agut def. Andreas Haider-Maurer 5-7, 7-6(1), 1-6, 7-5, 6-1

A year ago, Andreas Haider-Maurer earned his only career win at the U.S. Open with a first-round upset over Ernests Gulbis. For a lot of the match against Roberto Bautista Agut, it seemed like history was going to repeat itself.

Haider-Maurer won the first and third sets while only losing the second one by tiebreak. This means he was just a few points away from earning a straight-set victory over one of the top 20 players in the world.

Unfortunately, he struggled with consistency on the serve. He managed an impressive 16 aces but almost canceled these out with 13 double faults. Five of these came in the final set where he seemed to fall apart.

Bautista Agut won a highly contested fourth set to remain alive and then made quick work of his opponent in the fifth set, winning 68.3 percent of total points in a 6-1 win that lasted just 25 minutes. 

The Spanish player will now face American Tim Smyczek in the second round in what could be another tough match if he is not ready.

 

Marina Erakovic def. No. 20 Svetlana Kuznetsova 3-6, 6-2, 7-6(3)

Although Svetlana Kuznetsova has immense talent, she has struggled with consistency throughout her career.

The 2004 U.S. Open winner has reached the quarterfinals of three Grand Slams over the past two years. On the other hand, a loss to Marina Erakovic signaled the third first-round exit in four majors in 2014.

Erakovic was aggressive in the win, going 12-of-17 at the net to force her veteran opponent into trouble. Meanwhile, Kuznetsova did plenty of damage on her own with six double faults and 44 unforced errors.

With the win, Erakovic moves on to the second round to face Elena Vesnina. However, the interesting part of this upset is the affect it has on the rest of the draw, via Ben Rothenberg of The New York Times:

Victoria Azarenka entered this tournament as the No. 16 seed, but she now has a chance to make a deep run thanks to an open bracket.

 

Sam Querrey def. Maximo Gonzalez 6-2, 4-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3

Elise Amendola/Associated Press

While No. 13 John Isner had little trouble in his opening match, fellow American Sam Querrey was not as impressive while barely surviving a five-set competition against Maximo Gonzalez.

Querrey was good with his serve throughout the day, totaling 30 aces to go with an 82 percent mark on first serves. He averaged 126 MPH while getting as high as 137 MPH. The problem was he struggled while receiving, looking slow while attempting to cover ground.

He came through with a strong showing in the fifth set to escape with the win, a rare feat in his career:

This was good because he had plans for later in the day, as Adam Rubin of ESPN New York explained:

Querrey will have a much tougher match in Round 2 against No. 28 Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, who cruised to a straight-set victory. The American will have the support of the hometown fans, but a deep run will be difficult.
