The Cyclops is our daily look at one match you should be sure to follow during the upcoming day at the U.S. Open.

Novak Djokovic SRB (4) v. Jesse Witten USA, Louis Armstrong Stadium, 11 a.m. ET

There are better matches today than Novak Djokovic-Jesse Witten. (Federer-Hewitt, Sharapova-Oudin, Soderling-Querrey and Verdasco-Haas, for instance.) But if there's even a slight chance that Djokovic-Witten will end like one of Witten's 2008 challenger matches, then we'll foist "Match of the Day" status upon it without reservation.

A foot fault on match point in a third set tiebreak? That happening again is about as unlikely as Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe having a friendly hitting session on the U.S. Open grounds. Oh.
