    Stadium to win the Western & Southern Open, tying Rafael Nadal with a record 35th ATP Masters 1000 title.
  • Djokovic has won all nine ATP Masters 1000 tournaments twice. No other player has swept all nine titles once.
  • In the first men’s match on Arthur Ashe Stadium, No. 5 seed Alexander Zverev meets 2017 runner-up Kevin Anderson. The 6-foot-8 South African is one of seven former Grand Slam finalists in the 2020 US Open field.
  • Thirteen of the 21 Americans in the field will play on Monday, headlined by current No. 1 American John Isner’s meeting with ex-No. 1 American Steve Johnson. World No. 35 Reilly Opelka, the top-ranked unseeded player in the draw, challenges No. 7 seed David Goffin. Seven of the eight wild cards, all Americans, are also in action.
