Louis Armstrong STADIUM | 11 hours
Belinda Bencic vs. Iga Swiatek
Belinda Bencic, who won gold in women’s singles at the Tokyo Olympics, reached the US Open semifinals in 2019 and is two wins away from returning this year. Bencic, an 11th-placed hardcourt specialist, has lost just 18 games in three rounds, as her flat baseline shots have caused difficulties for her opponents.
Iga Swiatek, the seventh seed, is the only woman to reach the second week of every Grand Slam event in 2021, but she did not make the quarter-finals in any of the top three. Against Bencic, Swiatek will have to use sharp shots to try and disrupt Bencic’s rhythm during longer rallies.
Arthur Ashe Stadium | 10 p.m.
Maria Sakkari vs. Bianca Andreescu
Bianca Andreescu won the 2019 US Open but suffered a knee injury at the end of that year, which hampered her development as she took 15 months off and returned to the 2021 Australian Open. After losing in the first round on both clay courts of the French Open and on grass at Wimbledon, Andreescu, the sixth seed, has felt more at home on the hard courts of Flushing Meadows.
Maria Sakkari, the 17th seed, reached her first major semifinal at this year’s French Open and has advanced to the round of 16 at the US Open without dropping a set. After this run, she will move to the top 15 of the world rankings for the first time and with a few more wins, she could even reach the top 10, a first for a Greek woman.
Arthur Ashe Stadium | 7 p.m.
Novak Djokovic vs. Jenson Brooksby
Novak Djokovic, the first seed, did not look as tireless as usual during the US Open. Although he has won each of his three matches in four sets, there have been moments of lethargy that indicate problems with Djokovic’s form as he pursues a Grand Slam calendar.
Jenson Brooksby, a 20-year-old American who entered the main draw via a wild card, beat 21st-seeded Aslan Karatsev in five sets on Saturday. Brooksby has an oddly styled game, with a shortened serve move and a huge backswing on the forehand that entices opponents. He will test that style against the best returner to modern tennis.
Louis Armstrong STADIUM | 4 p.m.
Oscar Otte vs. Matteo Berrettini
Oscar Otte, a qualifier, had never made it past the second round of a major tournament until this week, starting his series in the main draw by upsetting 20th-seeded Lorenzo Sonego in the first round. He will face a much stronger opponent, Italy’s sixth-seeded Matteo Berrettini. Berrettini’s breakout appearance came at the US Open in 2019, and he seems most at home among the raucous bustle of New York City. His strong serve and brutalist style of play is well suited to faster surfaces and Otte will be pushed to play more defensively.
Arthur Ashe Stadium | 3 p.m.
Shelby Rogers vs. Emma Raducanu
Shelby Rogers had lost to world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty all four times they had played in 2021. On Saturday night, she fought from two breaks in the third set to win in the tiebreak, motivated by a crowd that swelled in anticipation of a mistake Barty made. She will face Emma Raducanu, an 18-year-old Briton, in a bid to reach her second consecutive US Open quarterfinal. Raducanu shot past Sara Sorribes Tormo in the third round, losing just one match in 70 minutes. Raducanu’s second appearance in a major tournament has resulted in another round of 16 visit, and she’s in good shape to try and make a deeper push.
