Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer face painful reminders of their past. Coco Gauff and Caty McNally get to show why they seem to have such promising futures. They highlight a schedule that also includes Serena Williams and a return to Louis Armstrong Stadium for Daniil Medvedev, who was booed during and after his victory there Friday. Defending champion Djokovic faces No. 23 Stan Wawrinka, who beat him in the 2016 final at Flushing Meadows and also in the 2015 French Open final. Five-time champion Federer is in the fourth round of the U.S. Open for the 18th straight time but lost at that point last year. He faces No. 15 seed David Goffin. Gauff, who lost to top-ranked Naomi Osaka on Saturday, teams with fellow teenager McNally for a second-round women’s doubles match on Armstrong preceding No. 5 Medvedev’s matchup with qualifier Dominik Koepfer.
