- John Isner and Philipp Kohlschreiber will meet for a place in the US Open fourth round on Saturday, just like they did in 2012 and 2013.
Isner, who is America's highest-ranked man at the tournament, has a 4-2 winning record over the German but the two losses both came at Flushing Meadows.
Both men came through their second round ties Thursday, meaning they'll do it all again in 2014.
"It's a weird situation. We have played three years in a row in the third round at this event. It's bizarre," said Isner, the 13th seed, who is trying to become America's first major champion since Andy Roddick at the US Open in 2003.
