The second seed, Federer will play  Australian John Millman in the round of 16 at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, while sixth-seeded Djokovic faces unseeded Portuguese, Joao Sousa for a place in the quarter-final.

Both Federer and Millman met three years ago in Brisbane, a game Federer won in three sets, while Djokovic, the Wimbledon champion, has never lost to Sousa in four meetings.

The Wimbledon champion first met with Sousa in the 2013 U.S. Open, where he won in straight sets, taking charge of their three subsequent meetings.

Men’s seventh seed, Marin Cilic, who defeated  Alex de Minaur, on Saturday will resume his bid for a second U.S. Open crown against Belgian 10th seed David Goffin.

Also, Russian Maria Sharapova will meet Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro, in the quarter-finals.

The 2006 champion has had three straight sets victories so far and has only ever lost one of her five previous meetings with Suarez Navarro
