Arthur Ashe practice time for Djoko and Shapo

Novak Djokovic and Denis Shapovalov wrap up their practice session on Arthur Ashe Stadium Aug. 25.

What seems like a million years ago – but in fact was less than three weeks ago, Novak Djokovic and Denis Shapovalov had a date on Arthur Ashe Stadium for a practice session.

Thing didn’t work out quite according to plan for Shapovalov, who might have met Djokovic in the quarterfinals.

Instead, he lost in straight sets to unseeded Lloyd Harris in the third round.

As for Djokovic, he’ll attempt to make history Sunday afternoon.

Here’s what it looked like all the way back on Aug. 25, when everything was still possible.
