They traded a mini-break in the first four points, staying locked at 2-2 before Pospisil shifted into a higher geat to forge a 6-2 advantage after a loose forehand from de Minaur.

The 21-year-old got the better of a tight and tense first set that featured no break points and ended when De Minaur staged a rallying comeback from 6-2 down in the tie-break, reeling off six points in succession to take the opener.

With top seed Novak Djokovic disqualified on Sunday for hitting a ball into a line judge, Medvedev is now backed to win his first Grand Slam title in NY.

The 21-year-old managed to go from strength to strength as he overcame a valiant Pospisil 7-6 6-3, 6-2 to book his place in the final eight.

"So I'm very happy I got that first set, and the momentum definitely changed after that". Already sic players aged 24 or younger are into the quarterfinals of the men's singles draw at the US Open, and a seventh could make it later this evening. De Minaur made no errors in the ninth game closing the set with a service victor to take a massive step towards the finish line. I just always tried to focus on my next match.

"I think one of the biggest things is I grew into my body", he said.

De Minaur, though, is only focusing on his quarter-final, against second-seeded Australian Open runner-up Dominic Thiem, a 7-6 (7-4) 6-1 6-1 victor over Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime.

The Demon steamrolls his way into his first Grand Slam QF.

"I'm obviously very happy", De Minaur said after the win.

"[I'm] in the fourth round and I feel like I've got nothing to lose", Thompson, who is 26, said.

Pospisil upset No. 25 seed Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., and No. 8 seed Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain before his surprise run came to an end against de Minaur.

Shapovalov is the first Canadian man in history to reach the U.S. Open quarterfinals.

Earlier on Monday, Ottawa's Gabriela Dabrowski and American partner Alison Riske lost 6-4, 6-2 to Americans Asia Muhammad and Taylor Townsend in a women's doubles quarterfinal on Monday.
