Serena Williams and Venus Williams continue their impressive singles runs at the 2016 US Open, but can they make it into the quarterfinals? Serena, the top seed, will play her Round of 16 match against Yaroslava Shvedova on Monday.
Venus will have the tougher opponent as the sixth seed faces No. 10 Karolina Pliskova. The Williams sisters could still face each other, but not until the semifinals. Venus would not only have to get past Pliskova, but likely No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska as well.
Radwanska will be in her Round of 16 match against Ana Konjuh on Monday. Finally, Simona Halep, the fifth seed, will face No. 11 Carla Suarez Navarro to wrap up the fourth round for the women.
Andy Murray, the second seed for the men, has a tough out against 22nd seed Grigor Dimitrov on Monday.
Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 US Open winner, has been playing some of the best tennis of his career of late. Del Potro has been surging all year, culminating in a silver medal victory at the Rio Olympics.
The unseeded Argentine will face a tough test in Dominic Thiem, the eighth seed, on Monday. Del Potro does own recent wins over Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal at the aforementioned Olympics. But Thiem is the man in front of him now, and whether or not he’ll continue his incredible run is the big question.
Stan Wawrinka, the third seed, will also be in action against unseeded Illya Marchenko. Finally, Kei Nishikori, the sixth seed, will face No. 21 Ivo Karlovic in the final Round of 16 matchup for the men.
