NEW YORK (AP) — Leylah Fernandez hits the court today for the first time since the 18-year-old Canadian defeated defending champion Naomi Osaka. This time she faces Angelique Kerber, a three-time Grand Slam champion who won the 2016 U.S. Open. Fernandez isn’t the only 18-year-old pulling off surprises in the tournament. Carlos Alcaraz upset No. 3 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas (SEET’-see-pahs) and now plays qualifier Peter Gojowczyk. Also today, fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina (svih-toh-LEE’-nah) is playing No. 12 Simona Halep and men’s No. 2 Daniil Medvedev (DAN’-ihl MEHD’-veh-dehv) is facing Daniel Evans.

UNDATED (AP) — The Yankees have placed reliever Jonathan Loaisiga (loh-AY’-see-gah) on the 10-day injured list because of a strained right rotator cuff. Manager Aaron Boone says Loaisiga experienced some pain yesterday after he surrendered a game-tying homer in the seventh inning of Friday night’s 4-3 victory over Baltimore. An MRI showed the strain and Loaisiga was given a cortisone injection. Boone said Loaisiga won’t throw for 10 days. He’s hoping the hard-throwing right-hander can return this season.

Backup tackle Brandon Knight is also on the COVID-19 list. Third-year pro Connor McGovern is the likely replacement for Martin as the Cowboys get set for Thursday’s visit to the Bucs and seven-time champion quarterback Tom Brady.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Ninth-ranked Notre Dame visits Florida State tonight in the day’s only college football game featuring a ranked team. Notre Dame is returning to being an independent and the Fighting Irish want to show they have found a transfer quarterback — Jack Coan from Wisconsin — and a cohesive offensive line that can lead the team back to the College Football Playoff. The Seminoles are looking to pull off an upset to spark a rebuild. Quarterback McKenzie Milton is listed as a co-starter. He hasn’t played football since suffering a traumatic leg injury in November 2018 while at UCF.
