Daniil Medvedev marches unstoppably down the bottom of the US Open men’s draw. The 25-year-old Muscovite is already in the quarterfinals and he hasn’t lost a set yet. Only Reilly Opelka can match his dominance if this Monday he beats South African Harris in three sets. The Muscovite also passed over Daniel Evans (6-3, 6-4 and 6-3 in 1:43), as he had done before against Gasquet, Koepfer and Andújar. In total, he has given up just 32 games in four games. With those numbers, He will face the surprising Dutchman Botic van de Zandschulp in the quarterfinals on Tuesday, who had to play the previous one and this Sunday he eliminated the seed number 11, Diego Schwartzman (6-3, 6-4, 5-7, 5-7 and 6-1 in 4:20).
Medvedev doesn’t even have to do his best tennis to win with the cap. That’s what scares the most. He simply overwhelms the rivals with his orderly play, with that style that would not be accepted in an orthodox school, but which is as effective as it is devastating. The serve works like a charm for him and the winning shots are dropped (43, 13 of them from direct service) and it fails very little (20 unforced errors). So it is impossible to get a hand on it.

“I liked my serve more than the other shots”he said after not celebrating his triumph, as always. “I want to reach another final to have something else to remember, I hope better”, He replied when they asked him if he is still affected by playing on the track, the Arthur Ashe, where he lost that of 2019 against Nadal. Genius and figure.
Results, table and schedules.
