US Open Glance: Djokovic can get to 27-0 in 2020 on Day 7

NEW YORK (AP) — A quick look at the U.S. Open:


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.
