US Open Glance: Djokovic puts unbeaten run on line on Day 5

NEW YORK (AP) — A quick look at the U.S. Open:LOOKAHEAD TO FRIDAYTop-seeded Novak Djokovic puts his undefeated record in 2020 on the line in a third-round match on Day 5 against No. 28 Jan-Lennard Struff. It’s a rematch: Djokovic beat Struff 6-3, 6-1 last week at the Western & Southern Open, part of the 17-time Grand Slam champion’s 25-0 start to the season. In other men’s play Friday, No. 4 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas faces No. 27 Borna Coric, and No. 5 Alexander Zverev faces No. 32 Adrian Mannarino. In a matchup between players who won 2015 junior titles at Flushing Meadows, No. 19 Taylor Fritz, a 22-year-old American, will play No. 12 Dennis Shapovalov, a 21-year-old Canadian. Five years ago, Fritz was the boys champ in singles, Shapovalov in doubles. On the women’s side, 2018 champion Naomi Osaka plays Marta Kostyuk, while 63rd-ranked Jessica Pegula’s debut in the third round of a Grand Slam tournament comes against two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova. “Honestly, I don’t even think I’m playing that great. I’m figuring it out,” Pegula said. “Maybe before, I would have gotten more easily frustrated or not played as smart. I’m staying tough in the really tough moments.” FRIDAY’S FORECASTSunny.
