Nadal overcomes Mayer to reach 4th round at US Open

Nadal overcomes Mayer to reach 4th round at US Open”

There are four Americans in the women's quarterfinals in NY for the first time in 15 years after No. 15 Madison Keys grabbed the last four games to top No. 4 seed Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 7-6 (2), 1-6, 6-4 in Monday's last match.

Nadal turned in his most powerful performance yet on a dominant day for the No. 1 seeds, and he moved a victory away from the possible semifinal showdown with his longtime rival at the only major where they have never met.

He never gave the unseeded Dolgopolov a chance on Monday, breaking serve six times in the 1 hour, 41 minute match.

Two-time U.S. Open victor Nadal is on course to win his second grand slam of the year after sealing the French Open title in June.

Nadal will square off with 19-year-old Russian Andrey Rublev, who tamed ninth-seeded Belgian David Goffin 7-5 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 to become the youngest man to reach the Open quarter-finals since Andy Roddick in 2001.

"I am in quarterfinals against a tough opponent now".

"I fought like this because of you guys, so thank you very much", he said in reference to the raucous Argentine fans in attendance.

A teenage tyro and Juan Martin del Potro's sledgehammer forehand stand between a blockbuster US Open semi-final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

When you have that many breakpoints, you created the opportunities, more than usual. "That's going to be my goal", said Nadal. "I don't have a lot of friends on social networks".

"I am pretty satisfied".

"Oh my God", said the 22nd seed, who now must try to recover for a quarter-final clash with Federer in a rematch of their 2009 final.

Del Potro next faces No.6 seed Dominic Thiem.

"You need matches like this", said Nadal.

"This is the quarter-finals I have nothing to lose". But the level is there because I have been practicing very well. So there is nothing really what I did different. "I mean, it was way better than the first two rounds", said Thiem. "That's what he came back for, to get crowd support the way he got it".

She wouldn't have much problem if she plays as she did in a almost flawless fourth-round performance, looking nothing like the player who almost went home a round earlier.

That group is looking into a match he played against Thiago Monteiro at a hard-court event in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on August 20.

Nadal lost only eight games after dropping a first-set tiebreaker and secured his spot in the round of 16 with a 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 victory over Argentina's Leonard Mayer.

"Now I have the opportunity to compete again, to try to do it well". "I don't think I'm going to get intimidated by the No. 1 player or the stadium or the occasion". "She came out playing, I felt, like the No. 1 player".

The 24th-seeded del Potro blew past 11th-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 in the third round.

Women's No. 4 Elina Svitolina meets No. 15 seed Madison Keys in the nightcap.
