Nadal Breezes Into US Open QFs

The remaining last-16 tie of the day sees 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro the 24th seeded Argentine up against Austrian sixth seed Dominic Thiem

But he took that set in a tiebreaker. No man has won the U.S. Open without dropping a set in the Open era, which started in 1968.

The USTA says it will match donations encouraged from spectators at the U.S. Open by Connors, who is raising money at the tournament site by signing autographs and posing for photos with fans.

Nine years after winning the U.S. Open junior title, she finally got past a major quarterfinal in Australia, then needed only eight months to do it again. She is 0-5 in that round previously.

The 20th-seeded Vandeweghe is into the round of eight at a Grand Slam tournament for the third time this season.

She will next face either Ukrainian fourth seed Elina Svitolina or Madison Keys of the United States.

After two marathon five-setters to open his U.S. Open account, Federer sprinted past veteran Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in just 77 minutes in the third round and dismissed Kohlschreiber in one hour, 49 minutes without facing a break point.

The Russian Rublev entered the top 50 for first time in late July.

The No. 1 seed is back into the quarters in Flushing Meadows for the first time since 2013, when he won his second of two U.S. Open titles. He will be Nadal's fifth straight unseeded opponent.


The closer Rafael Nadal gets to a potential long-awaited U.S. Open matchup with Roger Federer, the better he is playing.

The legendary Swiss took the first set at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, 6-4.

Women's quarterfinals: No. 9 Venus Williams beat No. 13 Petra Kvitova 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (2); Sloane Stephens beat No. 16 Anastasija Sevastova 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (4).

Vandeweghe echoed Williams' comments from after her quarterfinal victory, thinking back to the last generation of American women that, along with Venus and Serena Williams, included Lindsay Davenport and Jennifer Capriati.

And he ensured a straight sets victory was in sight by securing the second, 6-2.

Swiss Federer, chasing a record-extending 20th grand slam title, takes on Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro, the man who beat him in the 2009 final in NY. The top-seeded Nadal faces Alexandr Dolgopolov on Monday afternoon.

Federer was to play No. 24 seed Juan Martin del Potro later Wednesday in a matchup of former champions.
