Matches to Watch

Roger Federer (1) vs. Mardy Fish (23)

Federer hasn't dropped a set in U.S. Open play yet, but Fish will give him a challenge. Fish has made it through tough matches with Nikolay Davydenko and Gilles Simon, and he looks ready for the challenge.

Federer is seeking his sixth career U.S. Open title. Fish has only ever appeared in the quarterfinals once in his career at Flushing Meadows.

These two talented players will battle it out on Monday. Expect Federer to emerge victorious, but Fish will give him more to handle than previous opponents.


Angelique Kerber (6) vs. Sara Errani (10)

Kerber scored a big win over Venus Williams in the last round, and she looks to continue that against Errani on Monday.

Errani is pulling double duty between singles and doubles, but she hasn't dropped a set in singles so far. Kerber struggled to defeat Williams, but that experience will make her more difficult to beat in a match like this.

This match will take place in Louis Armstrong Stadium, and all eyes should be here. Both players are quality, and this match will go three sets.
