US Open 2019: Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic enter Round of 16

Roger Federer extends for a forehand during a third-round victory at the 2019 U.S. Open

Djokovic, champion in four of the past five Slams and 16 overall, was less bothered by left shoulder pain that nagged him in the second round in defeating 111th-ranked American Denis Kudla 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.

"That was a big improvement from the last match", Djokovic said. I don't know if I'm actually going to do it or not because it all depends on family, on scheduling, on body, on future. "Then it reminded me how young she was", Osaka said. But I definitely didn't do it intentionally.

Roger Federer's latest US Open victim has suggested that the five-time champion gets preferential treatment.

- Count Serena Williams among those who will be tuning in for Saturday's third-round showdown between Naomi Osaka and Coco Gauff.

The top-ranked Djokovic tried to make it 12 for 12 in U.S. Open fourth-round matches in a night match against Stan Wawrinka, a rematch of Wawrinka's victory in the 2016 final at Flushing Meadows.

"Physically it was quite a tough battle", Pliskova said. "Let the better player win". He thoroughly dominated the No. 15 Goffin in 1 hour, 19 minutes, blasting 35 winners to just eight for his opponent and serving up 10 aces.

The record 20-time Grand Slam victor Federer had dropped the first set in each of his first two matches at Flushing Meadows.

"I was down in the score early and I was getting to down on myself, but when I got up a break I felt he wasn't playing the same way I know he can play".

"I found my groove after a while and was able to roll really".

"As soon as you get there, first match on Ashe against him, you can feel all the 20,000 people are behind him as soon as he hit the ball", Goffin said. Johanna Konta beat her 6-7 (1), 6-3, 7-5 to move into the tournament's quarterfinals for the first time.

Dan Evans claimed US Open schedulers gave Roger Federer a helping hand after the tired Briton bowed out of Flushing Meadows on Friday.

"I had a lot of intensity today, which is really good for me", Williams said.

Spain's second-ranked Rafael Nadal, an 18-time Grand Slam victor who has never faced Federer at the US Open, returns to the court on Monday seeking a last-eight berth on the other side of the draw against 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic.

Dimitrov eliminated Alex de Minaur 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 to reach his first U.S. Open quarterfinal.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion picked his target, a woman with a purple flag.

"This is where I feel like my game's at, " De Minaur said. "Hopefully I can just keep it rolling". In men's singles, Andrey Rublev, Diego Schwartzman, Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev are some of the players whose campaign is still alive in US Open 2019.

The ATP Cincinnati victor was booed by the crowd repeatedly after holding an upraised middle finger aside his head for stadium cameras but away from chair umpire Damien Dumusois after receiving a code violation. That included Federer's match against Damir Dzumhur.

Prior to our losing recommendation on Friday, I suggested Dominik Koepfer was enjoying the benefits of positive variance in advance of his match with Nikoloz Basilashvili and the German qualifier didn't mean-revert in that match.

The five-time U.S. Open champion continues his quest for a record 21st Grand Slam tournament title against the victor of the match now underway between Grigor Dimitrov and Alex de Minaur.

Earlier Sunday, Ash Barty was knocked out by Wang Qiang, leaving only one of this year's major champions in the women's tournament. "Probably unconsciously I was looking in the second week, at the draw", he said.
