Despite going into the match with a shoulder injury, Djokovic looked flawless at times with his energetic play and strong serving.

Now, he will have a rematch of the 2016 final, as he prepares to take on Swiss star Stan Wawrinka. Wawrinka defeated Paolo Lornezi in straight sets in the second in a back-to-back set of matches.

Meanwhile, Daniil Medvedev wrapped up the men’s draw on Day 5 at the US Open with a highly entertaining victory over Feliciano Lopez. A physical clash from first ball to last, Medvedev outlasted Lopez 7-6, 4-6, 7-6 and 6-4, after three hours and 19 minutes of hard-hitting tennis.

All Eyes though are on what has been dubbed Super Saturday.

Coco Gauff is on another captivating run at a Grand Slam tournament and now she has get through defending champion Naomi Osaka to continue it. At 15, Gauff is the youngest woman to reach the third round of the US Open since 1996, when Anna Kournikova, a younger 15-made it to the fourth round falling to then No.1 Steffi Graf.

She’s also trying to become the youngest woman to beat a world No. 1 since the final of the WTA event in San Diego in 1991, when Jennifer Capriati-also a younger 15-beat then-No.1 Monica Seles.

Osaka beat Poland’s Magda Linette 6-2 and 6-4, to extend her winning streak at the hard-court majors to 16 matches in a row-seven match to win the 2018 US Open, another seven matches to win the 2019 Australian Open and two more wins so far here.

Osaka also needs to win the title to have any chance of keeping the No.1 ranking, so a loss to Gauff would mean No. 2 Ashleigh Barty or No.3 Karolina Pliskova would take over after the US Open.
