The tournament moves into the fourth round on Day 7, with past champions Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka on the schedule. Djokovic carries a 29-match winning streak — 26-0 in 2020 — into his matchup in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Sunday afternoon against No. 20 seed Pablo Carreño Busta. Djokovic has won all three of their previous meetings. The 33-year-old from Serbia has won five of the past seven Grand Slam tournaments to lift his trophy total to 17, closing in on Roger Federer, who has a men’s-record 20, and Rafael Nadal, who has 19. Neither Federer nor Nadal entered the U.S. Open. At night in Ashe, No. 7 seed David Goffin plays No. 12 Denis Shapovalov and 2018 champion Naomi Osaka faces No. 14 Anett Kontaveit in a matchup of big hitters. Two other owners of multiple major championships are in action against Americans: Angelique Kerber faces No. 28 Jennifer Brady, and Petra Kvitova plays unseeded Shelby Rogers.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Every day, having ‘Serena’ on your back is a massive target for the tour, for press, for stress. But as Billie Jean King said, ‘Pressure is a privilege.’ So I wouldn’t want it any other way.” — Williams.
