Dominic Thiem

US Open Update: Dominic Thiem, Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev through to the quarter finals.

After the disqualification of world number one Novak Djokovic on Sunday for striking a ball on a line judge, Dominic Thiem has been labeled the favourite to win the US Open and he didn’t disappoint, ousting Andy Murray’s conqueror Felix Auger-Aliassime with a brilliant performance.

The Austrian won 7-6 (8-6) 6-3 6-2 to set up a quarter final match against Alex de Minaur, one of the game’s risings stars.

De Minaur reached the last eight of Grand Slam for the first time thanks to a 7-6 (8-6) 6-3 6-2 win over Canada’s Vasek Pospisil.

Daniil Medvedev is also a major contender as he looks to go a step better than last year.


The Russian lost to world number two Rafael Nadal in five sets in the 2019 final but his dismantling of Frances Tiafoe 6-4 6-1 6-0 to go through to the last eight shows he’s a tournament favourite.

He will now meet his compatriot and 10th seed Andrey Rublev who defeated Matteo Berrettini 4-6 6-3 6-3 in the next round.

There will be a brand new men’s singles Grand Slam champion on tour for the first time in six years and also this year will produce a first men’s Slam champion to be born in the 1990s.
