2019 US Open Preview
Defending men’s and women’s champions Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka will return to Flushing as No. 1 seeds.
Djokovic, 32, is coming off a run to the semifinals of the Cincinnati Masters, where he fell to Russian 23-year-old Daniil Medvedev 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 on August 17.
“He played amazing tennis from 4-3 in the second set. Not much that I could really do,” the Serb said, according to the ATP Tour website. “I tried to return his serve. And when I had my racquet on the ball I was returning his serves, but you can’t really predict someone or prepare yourself for someone serving that big a second serve consistently. He definitely has a lot of confidence. When you have so much confidence, then obviously you allow yourself to go for these kind of shots. I congratulate him. He deserved to win the match.”
Djokovic, in search of his 17th Grand Slam title, won the Australian Open and Wimbledon earlier this year.
“I lost to a player that was playing amazing, so I’ll take that and I’ll move forward to New York and have a good practice week,” he said, per the ATP Tour site.
“Then, of course, get myself ready for the Open. I love playing in those conditions there on center court. I’m going to fight for a title as everyone else does, and I like my chances. I feel good and I look forward to it.”
The 21-year-old Osaka suffered a knee injury during her quarterfinals match with Sofia Kenin, 20, at the Cincinnati Masters and withdrew while trailing her fellow American 6-4, 1-6, 2-0.
“It sucks, especially since I didn’t want to get injured this close to the Open,” Osaka said, according to the WTA website. “And now I’m kind of worried a little bit.
“She was playing well. I had to really think about what I had to do during the match, so I’m not that mad at the result. The injured part sucks, but losing, it’s not that big of a deal.”
Osaka’s victory over Serena Williams at Arthur Ashe Stadium Stadium a year ago represented her first Grand Slam title. She won her second at the Australian Open earlier this year.
“Last year I won the US Open, and this year I’m trying to play the US Open,” Osaka said, per the WTA site. “I don’t even really think about winning the tournament. I just want to have the chance to play it, you know?
“I feel like this [injury] might have that 1% chance of me not being able to play, and that’s what’s concerning me.
