NEW YORK (AP) — Naomi Osaka has won 16 straight Grand Slam matches as she takes on 18-year-old Canadian Leylah Fernandez in the U.S. Open. Osaka caught a break when her last opponent withdrew from their scheduled match and she rolled into the third round. Osaka is the defending champion and is in pursuit of her fifth career major title. No. 2 seed Aryna Sabalenka also is in action, and three-time U.S. Open finalist Victoria Azarenka takes on Garbiñe Muguruza in a matchup between women who each won two Slam trophies. No. 2 Daniil Medvedev, twice a major runner-up, faces Pablo Andújar, and two qualifiers meet when Henri Laaksonen plays Peter Gojowczyk.
