Nadal cruises into US Open fourth round

Nadal cruises into US Open fourth round

The No. 2 seed faces No. 22 Marin Cilic in a matchup of past champions, with the victor getting a spot in the quarterfinals.

Osaka, who brought 15-year-old American Coco Gauff's NY run to an end in the third round, will kick off the day session inside Arthur Ashe Stadium when she faces Swiss 13th seed Belinda Bencic.

Rafael Nadal of Spain reacts after scoring a point while playing John Millman of Australia during their Round 1 men's Singles tennis match at the 2019 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in NY on August 27, 2019.

Bencic will bring plenty of confidence given she beat Osaka in their two meetings this year to improve to 2-1 in their head-to-head record.

'But I'm happy to be playing on the hard court. The American fought back with a pair of match points before Cilic finally put it away on his serve to advance to a Grand Slam tournament fourth round for the 23rd time.

The draw has certainly been kind to him with both his great rivals on the other side, while second-round opponent Thanasi Kokkinakis was forced to withdraw through injury. I just think day by day, try to practice and be ready for a tough match'.

They both played on a high level in set number two and it was Cilic who delivered a whole package, serving well and breaking Rafa at 15 in the fourth game that sent him in front, sealing the set with an unreturned serve at 5-3 to level the overall score and stay in contention for an upset.

Australian 28th seed Nick Kyrgios failed in his bid to progress past the third round at Flushing Meadows for the first time after losing 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 to Russian Andrey Rublev.

Mertens awaits the victor between No.15 seed Bianca Andreescu and American qualifier Taylor Townsend, who took down Simona Halep in the second round.
