Thiem vanquishes Anderson in straight sets at US Open

Nadal advances to face Thiem in U.S. Open quarterfinals

Nadal leads the series 7-3.

Defending champion Nadal had suggested he would need to improve on his "very tough" third-round match with Karen Khachanov, where four sets and two tiebreaks were required, but there was little evidence that the seemingly worn out world number one had lifted his game at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Both players suffered in the humid conditions under the floodlights at Arthur Ashe Stadium, but Del Potro fed off the energy of the crowd, including a group of his friends who have travelled from his hometown Tandil to cheer him on. I could go very far back like I do on clay usually. "A bunch of times I thought I hit pretty decent returns but he really punishes anything he has time on‚ and even sometimes when he doesn't have time". "So I didn't face one break point, and I didn't feel so much pressure on service games".

Pliskova, the three-time WTA tour ace leader who briefly ascended to world number one a year ago, has surprised Williams before at the US Open, beating her to reach her first Grand Slam final in 2016.

Rafael Nadal has faced off with Dominic Thiem on 10 previous occasions but on Tuesday, the pair will meet on hard courts for the first time, with a place in the US Open semi-finals on the line.

"He's maybe playing some of the best tennis ever right now for him", said the American. "You guys were on my side so it was great". "Not the best percentage, but I nearly made every point in the first serve game". It is likely to be another tough battle and it would not be a surprise if it goes the distance, but expect the number one seed to prevail. In a June 2017 match at the French Open, then ranked number 63 in the world, Basilashvili lost to Nadal in straight sets in just 90 minutes.

Smith Rowe has not been involved in any of Arsenal's three Premier League games so far this term, but could see game time in the cup competitions and the Europa League.

The Phoenix Suns officially acquired forward Ryan Anderson as part of a four-player deal with the Houston Rockets on Friday. It helped me a lot. "Really going to have to focus on my game, continue doing what I'm doing".

Since her maiden Grand Slam triumph, Stephens has reached a second major final at the French Open. He took a singles win off of the Spanish great in Madrid.

"Against Rafa, I've had three very nice experiences and seven awful experiences", said Thiem who turns 25 on Monday. "I have to try and consolidate that good feeling I had on serve in the second set and I finished serving well as well". I'm able to compete with anyone out there, as I showed today.

"I think that moment was the key of the match", Del Potro said in an on-court interview. But at the same time, not make too many mistakes.

"Also, the court made a big difference".

The pair met in the third round in the most highly-anticipated men's match of the tournament so far, but it proved to be style over substance as Federer raced to a 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 victory inside two hours. It wasn't meant to be.
