Schwartzman Beats Zverev, but Struggles With What Comes Next

Adjust Comment Print

Rafael Nadal kept pulling away in his U.S. Open quarterfinal, then getting reeled back in by Diego Schwartzman. Other winners on Monday were Bianca Andreescu, the 15th ranked Canadian who beat Taylor Townsend of the United States 6-1, 4-6, 6-2; 25th ranked Elise Mertens of Belgium, who beat Kristie Ahn of the United States 6-1, 6-1 and 23rd ranked Donna Vekic of Croatia, who beat 26th ranked Julia Goerges of Germany 6-7, 7-5, 6-3. Two matches in a row against two tough opponents.

Nadal is aiming to close the gap to 20-time major victor Federer with his fourth title at Flushing Meadows.

The best possible answer I could give is that Woods has supported both Federer and Nadal over the years.

"He told me, 'I need to thank you, because I thought that everyone is born once and dies once". Yesterday, he became the first Italian man since Corrado Barazzutti 42 years ago to reach the US Open semi-finals.

Schwartzman eliminated sixth seed Alexander Zverev in the last 16 to match his deepest Slam run.

"It's unbelievable what he's doing", 23-year-old Berrettini said of 18-time Grand Slam champion Nadal.

Berrettini defeated 13th seed Gael Monfils to progress to the last four and Nadal - who last won the US Open title in 2017 - expects a challenge. I love the sport and feel very lucky to still be playing tennis here.

He exchanged points with Nadal in the second set before winning three consecutive games to take a 4-1 lead in the set.

At stake is a berth in Sunday's final at Arthur Ashe Stadium against a first-time Grand Slam finalist - the victor between Russian fifth seed Daniil Medvedev and Bulgaria's 78th-ranked Grigor Dimitrov, who upset 20-time Slam champion Roger Federer in a five-set quarter-final thriller.

Bencic's 7-5, 6-4 triumph, her WTA-best sixth over a top-five foe this year, ensured 21-year-old Japanese star Osaka will fall from atop the rankings next week and won't become the first repeat US Open victor since Serena Williams in 2014. That would allow him to move within one trophy of Federer's record for men, and with time on his side: Nadal is 33; Federer is 38. "When he's playing well, he's able to win against everybody", Nadal said. "I have played him eight times, and every important moment he played better than me!"

The number two seed has won the title here three times before, and he is on course to try for a fourth and a showdown with his old adversary, Roger Federer, in Sunday's final. "For me, it is a big pleasure having him here supporting [me]. I used every opportunity I had", the Bulgarian said in his press conference.
