Federico Delbonis, Christopher O'Connell and JJ Wolf. This is the trio of players that Daniil Medvedev had to face in the first week of the US Open. The finalist-in-charge got rid of the 22-year-old American with a quick 6-3 6-3 6-2 and booked the match with Frances Tiafoe.
Last American survivor in the men's draw, fresh from the rather comfortable success against Marton Fucsovics. Alex de Minaur needs the fifth set to break down Karen Khachanov's resistance, in the lot of surprises there is essentially only the misstep of Roberto Bautista Agut.
Beaten in five sets by Vasek Pospisil. The curtain falls on Arthur Ashe Stadium with Dominic Thiem's victory against Marin Cilic, champion in the two thousand and fourteen. The 27-year-old Austrian, who wins the first two sets and allows himself a break in the third, re-establishes the hierarchy in the most important moment and holds the 6-2 6-2 3-6 6-3 at the threshold of three hours of play.
Moreover, bringing the spoils against the Croatian to 3-0. The match against Felix Auger-Aliassime in the round of 16 could be anything but trivial. Serena Williams enters the fourth round of the US Open for the nineteenth time in her career, beating 2017 winner Sloane Stephens by a score of 2-6 6-2 6-2 in an hour and 46 minutes.
33 Slam comeback for Serena, who went to third for the sixth time in eight post-lockdown matches, her first here in New York, and win # 104 in New York - Chris Evert is further and further away at 101. Stephens had only won one out of eight games this season before this tournament, but in the first two New York rounds she performed well, leaving 10 games total to Buzarnescu and Govortsova and offering a great return especially with the second ball (55% achievement versus Serena's 43%, and the third lowest percentage of double fouls in the women's draw).
Serena, on the other hand, tends to get the points with the first, nocking at the highest average speed of all (108 mph) and winning 74% of the points with the fundamental, and in the first outings she tried to verticalize a lot, obtaining 11% of its net points. In the fourth round also Sofia Kenin and Victoria Azarenka.
