Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and J.J. Wolf are making their first appearance in the third round of a Grand Slam. A pair of 21-year-olds, Davidovich Fokina and Denis Shapovalov, have already surpassed that result with third-round victories on Friday. Wolf will play third seed Daniil Medvedev on Saturday.

The seven players aged 21-and-under who reached the third round this year also marked the most at the US Open since 2008. If history is any indication, there could be a few future Grand Slam champions among the list.
