New York – Tennis players Barbora Krejčíková and Kateřina Siniaková advanced smoothly to the quarterfinals of the doubles at the US Open, the Japanese-Taiwanese duo Šúko Aojamaová and Chan Chao-ching were outclassed 6:2, 6:0. The three seeds continue to nurture their hopes for a third Grand Slam title this year. The triumph from the concrete courts in Flushing Meadows is the last one missing from the “big four” tournaments. Russian Daniil Medvedev will not defend his triumph at the US Open and will lose his position as world number one.

The 26-year-old Czechs did not lose serve even once in the duel with the tournament fifteens. In the opening set they won two breaks, in the second they didn’t allow their opponents even a game and gave them a “canary”. They won the game in 62 minutes.

In the quarterfinals, Krejčíková and Siniaková will face either the American-Japanese couple Asia Muhammadová and Ena Šibaharaová, or the Polish-Mexican couple Gabriela Dabrowská and Guiliana Olmosová.

Medvedev will not defend the title, he was eliminated in the round of 16 with Kyrgios

Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev will not defend his triumph at the Grand Slam US Open and will lose his position as world number one. The 26-year-old native of Moscow lost to Australian Nick Kyrgios 6:7, 6:3, 3:6, 2:6 in the round of 16 on the concrete courts in New York. Kyrgios, the 23rd in the tournament, will challenge the Russian Karen Khačanov in the next stage, who defeated Pablo Carrena 4:6, 6:3, 6:1, 4:6, 6:3.

Medvedev, who has not yet lost a set at the tournament, lost the match in less than three hours. Even 22 aces and 49 winning balls were not enough for him. He recorded his worst result at the US Open since 2018, when he was eliminated in the third round.

Twenty-seven-year-old Kyrgios improved his previous record at the US Open. He will play in the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam for the fourth time in his career and for the second time in a row. The last time he reached the final was at WIMbledon, where he was defeated by Novak Djokovic. However, the Serb will not start in New York due to his rejection of vaccination against the coronavirus.

“It was an amazing match,” Kyrgios said after his match with Medvedev on Arthur Asch Court. “Daniil is the defending champion and there was a lot of pressure on him. But I played really well. I have been playing an amazing game for the last few months. Where else to show it than here in a full house in New York,” added the Australian.

The seventh seed Casper Ruud also goes on, who defeated Corentin Moutet 6:1, 6:2, 6:7, 6:2 and is the first Norwegian in history to reach the quarterfinals at the Grand Slam in Flushing Meadows. The 23-year-old finalist of this year’s Roland Garros will challenge Matteo Berrettini’s tournament thirteenth in it. The Italian tennis player defeated Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich 3:6 7:6, 6:3, 4:6, 6:2 after three hours and 46 minutes.

Ruud, seeded fifth, lost his serve only once in the match and scored 43 winning points. The furthest he has gone so far at a Grand Slam in New York was the third round two years ago. The Frenchman Moutet was the first in the history of the US Open to make it to the round of 16 from the position of lucky loser.

Rome-born Berrettini advanced to the quarterfinals of Grand Slam tournaments for the fifth time in a row. The 2019 US Open semifinalist also collected 18 aces in a five-set battle against Davidovich.

Among the women, Caroline Garcia of France advanced to the top eight. The final defeater of Petra Kvitova from the general in Cincinnati knocked out the home Alison Riske-Amritrajova 6:4, 6:1 and claimed her 12th victory in a row. She reached the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam for the second time in her career, having only played it at Roland Garros in 2017.

Garcia’s next opponent will be American Cori Gauff. At the age of eighteen, the Atlanta native reached her third Grand Slam quarterfinal and her first at the US Open. The finalist of this year’s Roland Garros erased the lack of a break in both sets in the duel against the Chinese Zhang Shuai and won twice 7:5.

Australian Ajla Tomljanovic, who defeated Serena Williams in the third round, also continues. She eliminated Russia’s Lyudmila Samsonova 7:6, 6:1 and ended her streak of thirteen consecutive wins. She will next face Tunisian Uns Džabirová or Russia’s Veronika Kudérmetova.
