He entered the last-16 after defeating Holger Rune in straight sets in the third round. He is yet to drop a single set in the tournament so far and will look to maintain his form against the Russian.

Against an in-form Norrie he needs to be on top of his game.

Rafael Nadal vs Frances Tiafoe

Rafael Nadal was at his best in his previous contest against Richard Gasquet as he dropped just six games to clinch a straight set victory over Richard Gasquet. The 36-year old would look to maintain his form going into the fourth round at the US Open as he faces 22nd seed Frances Tiafoe, who will be the first seeded opponent in the tournament to play against Nadal. Tiafoe has shown great form and consistency so far as he is yet to drop a set in the tournament. He defeated a higher-ranked opponent in 14th seed Diego Sachwartzman in straight sets in the third round to make his third successive fourth round appearance at the US Open. It will be a different challenge for the 24-year old against World No.2 Nadal but the American enters the contest with confidence.

Jessica Pegula vs Petra Kvitova

Home favourite Jessica Pegula will face 21st seed Petra Kvitova in the fourth round. Pegula has been in good form throughout the season and having reached the quarterfinals at Australian Open and French Open earlier this year she eyes yet another last-8 appearance in a Grand Slam event this year. Pegula started the tournament with straight set victories over Viktorija Golubic and Aliaksandra Sasnovich. In the third round, she dropped a set against China’s Yue Yuan but made it to the fourth round. Meanwhile, Kvitova has been in good touh recently as she finished as runner-up at Cincinnati and defeated Erika Andreeva in straight sets in the first round and then received a walkover in the second. In the third round, she saved two match points to defeat Garbine Muguruza and entered the fourth round. Kvitova leads the head-to-head record 2-0 against Pegula. But the American enters the contest as the favourite.

World No.1 Iga Swiatek has shown all he signs of getting back to her best form. The Polish who had a brilliant 37-match unbeaten streak earlier this year is yet to drop a single set in the tournament so far and takes on unseeded Jule Niemeier in the fourth round. Swiatek sailed past Jasmine Paolini, Sloane Stephens, Lauren Davis in the first three rounds so far. Jule Niemeier meanwhile has made her maiden appearance to the fourth round of the US Open. She has also won all her games so far in straight sets. She will however face a very big task against the World No.1.
