US Open glance: Federer, Nadal can set up 1st US Open clash

US Open glance: Federer, Nadal can set up 1st US Open clash

But he was still causing the Austrian some problems and earned two break points with a forehand passing shot victor, a shot that would be used more and more as the match grew older.

The match lasted three-hours and thirty-five minutes on the Grandstand court. "That's the first time I experienced that". It was a great match, I think, Set 4 and Set 5.

"I'm sure there were many Argentinians in the crowd and some different reasons, for his success and he has come back from injuries and his game is attractive". I was sorry for him because I think he had a legitimately good chance to become world number one at that time. "Dominic was dominating the match so easy", he said. I am in the second week.

Federer, after surviving five-set encounters in the opening two rounds, is gaining momentum as the competition moves into the business end. "This match meant a lot to me, obviously, playing at home and, of course, it being a major".

"He's a player who can play awesome shots but sometimes he can be very unpredictable so I just waited for my opportunity". "Feel like I would probably win it somehow", Federer said.

Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov also reached the fourth round with a speedy win over Serbia's Viktor Troicki.

No man has won the U.S. Open title without dropping a set in the Open era.

"I am pretty satisfied", said Thiem, who is looking to reach the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the first time.

"I'm not going to be talking about gambling". A year ago Rublev lost in the first round of the US Open qualifying, now he's into the final eight.

Nadal got to the round of eight in NY for the first time since his 2013 title, overwhelming 64th-ranked Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-2, 6-4, 6-1.

Federer asked for a medical timeout after the second set against No. 33 seed Philipp Kohlschreiber, briefly let the court in Arthur Ashe Stadium to get a quick massage from a trainer, and soon was right back at it, finishing off his 6-4, 6-2, 7-5 victory Monday night.

"There is Rublev on his side, a great, young, up-and-coming player I love to see play and Del Potro, he had an epic today". It's a very special tournament to me. "And then when I saw all this crowd cheering for me, my energies went up". But the crowd, the screaming fans, some in Argentina soccer jerseys and many dancing in celebration with every point, carried him through for a 1-6, 2-6, 6-1, 7-6, 6-4 victory.

"I have a good shots. I came to the net very often, tried to be aggressive all the time, and I think I played well".

Once again, in inflicting Thiem with his first loss from two sets up at a slam, Del Potro proved that it's not just his deadly forehand but arguably the biggest heart in tennis that threatens to bring Federer unstuck once again.

She will next face Madison Keys of the United States, who put out fourth seed Elina Svitolina 7-6 (7/2), 1-6, 6-4, ending the Ukrainian's hopes of taking the world number one spot.

Ninth-seeded David Goffin of Belgium advanced to the fourth round when 18th-seed Gael Monfils of France retired because of injury with Goffin leading 7-5, 5-1.
