Casper Ruud vs Matteo Berrettini
Fifth seed Casper Ruud will take on Italy’s 13th seed Matteo Berrettini in a blockbuster quarterfinal contest at the US Open. Ruud will be playing in the quarterfinal at the US Open for the first time in his career. Apart from winning the first round against Kyle Edmund in straight sets, Ruud won all his other matches after dropping a set or two. In the third round, he faced 29th seed Tommy Paul and had to win the game in five sets. In the other two matches, he defeated Tim van Rijthoven and Corentin Moutet in four setters. He needs to be at his best against Berrettini. The Italian too won only his first round match against Nicolas Jarry in straight sets. He defeated Hugi Grenier and Andy Murray in four sets in the next two rounds before clinching a five-setter against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the fourth round to enter the quarterfinal.
Nick Kyrgios vs Karen Khachanov
After clinching one of his biggest victories of his career in a Grand Slam by defeating World No.1 and defending champion Daniil Medvedev, red-hot Nick Kyrgios is now eyeing a spot in the semifinal as he faces Karen Khachanov in the last-8. Kyrgios has the most wins on the ATP Tour ever since the French Open this year and he has dropped just two sets in his four rounds at the US Open so far. He gears up to continue his form in what would be his maiden appearance in the quarterfinal at the Flushing Meadows. Meanwhile, Karen Khachanov stunned 12th seed Pablo Carreno Busta to set up clash with Kyrgios. Khachanoc too will be making his maiden appearance in the US Open quarterfinal and faces a big task against the Australian.
Ons Jabeur vs Ajla Tomljanovic
In a battle between two in-form players Ons Jabeur will face Ajla Tomljanovic in the all-important quarterfinal contest at the US Open. Jabeur, who was a finalist at the Wimbledon this year has been in top form in the tournament as she dropped only a set so far. She haced 18th seed Verinika Kudermetova in the previous round and won the contest 7-6, 6-4 to enter the quarterfinal. Meanwhile, Tomljanovic defeated Serena Williams in the third round and brough curtains down on the American’s illustrious career. She then defeated Ludmilla Samsonova in straight sets to enter her maiden US Open quarterfinal. The unseeded Australian will face a seeded player for the first time in the tournament.
Coco Gauff vs Caroline Garcia
18-year old Coco Gauff who is one of the title favourites at the US Open this year faces a stern test in the quarterfinals as she will be up against an in-form Caroline Garcia. Gauff is looking to win her maiden Grand Slam tournament and she has won all her four matches so far in straight sets as the 12th seed is inching closer to realising her dream of winning the year-end major at her home. Meanwhile, 17th seed Garcia is on an 12-match unbeaten streak and like Gauff, she is also yet to drop a single set so far. The French player too will be making her maiden appearance in the quarterfinal at the US Open and this math promises to be a cracker of a contest.
