Several contenders will take the court Thursday night as the second round wraps up at the 2016 U.S. Open, including women's perennial favorite Serena Williams.

Williams will be part of the only female matchup of the evening, but stars like David Ferrer, Nick Kyrgios and Stan Wawrinka will look to overcome scrappy underdogs to continue their runs in the year's final Grand Slam tournament.

Thursday's night play will air on ESPN2 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. The earlier matches can also be viewed on ESPN from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., and a full schedule can be found at USOpen.org. Take a look below at the late matchups, as well as a breakdown of the conclusion of second-round action at the U.S. Open.

King has one career tournament title, and she has only made it past the second round twice at the U.S. Open, with the last time being in 2011. Expect the dominant Williams to overpower King and cruise into the third round.

On the men's side, the four top-25 ranked players are Ferrer, Steve Johnson, Kyrgios and Wawrinka.

Wawrinka has the easiest matchup, as he gets the 243rd-ranked player in the world, Alessandro Giannessi, a player who has yet to turn pro. The two have never played, but Wawrinka is a two-time major winner playing against a man competing in his very first U.S. Open. Wawrinka has been good this season with three tournament wins, so look for him to take care of business here.

Ferrer and Kyrgios should also expect to advance. Ferrer is 9-0 against Fabio Fognini, with the latter posting a lackluster 68-100 career record on hard courts. Ferrer is 317-174 on the surface and has made deep runs in this tournament before, making the semifinals in 2...
