At the US Open 2020 comes a simpler victory than expected for Dominic Thiem, who beats the very young Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime in three sets: the Austrian suffers only in the first set where he wins after a hard-fought tie-break, then Auger melts and falls with a double 6-1 in the other two sets.
For him in the quarterfinals there will be Alex De Minaur, winner without problems in the first match of the day against Vasek Pospisil for three sets to zero. Andrey Rublev does not suffer in the service and defeats the Italian Matteo Berrettini in four sets.
In the last set Berrettini tries to do something but Rublev is now unbeatable and in the sixth game he gets the break that allows him to close the game and get to the Quarter Finals where he will find countryman Daniil Medvedev, clearly winner in three sets against Frances Tiafoe.
Novak Djokovic was diqualified from the tornament after hitting a line judge in the match against Pablo Carreno-Busta: Nole will have to try to reduce the gat with Roger federer and Rafael Nadal in the Slam Race at the upcoming Roland Garros 2020.
