3.40 pm: The most important information in advance:

ALEXANDER ZVEREV: Before the US Open, the German number one still wrestled with itself and the athletic form. An early exit would not have been a surprise. But now the 22-year-old stands for the first time in New York in the second round and has on Monday in the second game after 18.00 clock German time on Center Court against the Argentine Diego Schwartzman good chances to progress.

The victories in the first three rounds made Zverev self-confident. "This is only a fourth round, not a final," said the native of Hamburg to the question of whether he was already satisfied with the achievements.

JULIA GORGES: Even the year of Julia Görges was not going according to plan. After a great season in 2018, the successes of 2019 were once out. But since the change of coach to Sebastian Sachs, the 30-year-old is back on track. In New York she had to fend off a match ball in the first round, but then turned the game.

Since then, she plays strong and threw in the third round, the highly rated Kiki Bertens from the Netherlands clearly in two sentences. In that condition, she has a good chance of reaching the quarter-finals in the match against Croatian Donna Vekic.
