US Open day five: Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Johanna Konta make it to second week


Defending champion Novak Djokovic and five-time winner Roger Federer made it through to round four.

Johanna Konta is the last Brit standing having made the second week for a third straight Grand Slam.

Here, we take a look back at day five and forward to day six at the US Open.

Shot of the Day

Alex de Minaur’s pick-up and volley had the Grandstand crowd on its feet.

Shock of the Day

Seventh seed Kei Nishikori, a finalist here in 2014, was dumped out in four sets by Australian De Minaur.

Brit Watch

Dan Evans’ exertions in his rain-delayed second-round match caught up with him as he bowed out to Roger Federer, winning just five games, but Johanna Konta marches on after a straight-sets win over Zhang Shuai.

Men: Kei Nishikori (7), Nikoloz Basilashvili (17)
Women: Anastasia Sevastova (12), Sofia Kenin (20), Maria Sakkari (30), Dayana Yastremska (32), Zhang Shuai (33)
