Tennis-Five things to watch out for on Day 7 of the U.S. Open

NEW YORK, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Here are five things to watch for on day seven of the U.S. Open on Sunday.

* Wet weather is expected to return to Flushing Meadows on Sunday, threatening to delay or cancel matches outside of Arthur Ashe Stadium. Rain cancelled the majority of matches during the tournament’s second day on Tuesday

* Fresh faced Canadian sensation Denis Shapovalov continues to make a name for himself in his first-ever grand slam and will try to punch his ticket to the quarter-finals when he battles Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain in the early match on center court

* Resurgent Russian Maria Sharapova will look to extend her winning streak on Arthur Ashe to 21-0 when she faces Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia

* Hometown favorite American Venus Williams will feel the love when she battles Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain to wrap up the morning matches on center court

* Sam Querrery, the last standing American on the men’s side, will try to come one step closer to ending his country’s grand slam drought, which dates back to 2003, when he faces Mischa Zverev of Germany on Arthur Ashe (Reporting by Rory Carroll, editing by Gene Cherry)
