Rafael Nadal avoids US Open scare to reach quarterfinals

And the Spaniard passed that tough test with flying colours and some sensational shots to script a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 victory in two hours and 49 minutes on Monday night.

Cilic was serving at 1-2, love-30 in the third game of the third set.

'For me, it's a huge honor playing in front of all of you of course, ' Nadal said at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

But it was the reaction of Woods, a victor of 15 golf majors, to an assortment of sensational Nadal winners during a crucial section of the match that caught the eye at Arthur Ashe Stadium. "Maybe he can lose a little bit of rhythm after that", said Nadal, who attended Tiger's Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas two years ago.

"He's an fantastic inspiration, all the things that he accomplish in sport, the way that he managed to keep fighting that hard". He is going to be a grand slam champion soon I think. The 2017 champion had more aces than Cilic (11 to 10), more winners (38 to 33) and more points won on first serve (83 percent to 59).

"He was pushing me back ... after (the) second set I thought something needed to change".

(The fist pump looks like it might run in the family.) The match ended on a ridiculous around the net victor by Nadal and Tiger went to the fist pump well one more time. The Spaniard lost to Federer at the Wimbledon semifinals in July, a month after winning his 12th French Open title at Roland Garros.

"He is one of the most talented players on our tour", said Nadal, who sometimes trains with Schwartzman.

"He is playing unbelievable, nothing new, he's one of the players with best talent on tour", Nadal said of his upcoming opponent. Cilic was immediately put back on his heels as he hit the next shot, which gave Nadal the ability to step in and hit a passing shot victor. Is not a surprise he is there. "I don't know, I think I followed the ball good because he had a good volley and I saw it". Honestly for me, today, Schwartzman was favored. But good, no? It means a lot to me to have him supporting. "(To) have him supporting and be able to be in touch with him very often for me is something that I am super happy and I hope one day we can play golf and tennis together". Federer faces Grigor Dimitrov in the quarters on Tuesday.
