World No. 1 Alcaras defeated 61st-ranked Matteo Arnaldi (Italy) in the men’s singles round of 16 on the 8th day of the tournament held at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, New York, on the 4th (local time). He easily defeated them 3-0 (6-3 6-3 6-4) in 1 hour and 57 minutes and advanced to the quarterfinals.
Alcaras, who won last year’s US Open and this year’s Wimbledon, is three steps away from winning her third major major title and second consecutive US Open title.
Born in 2003, Alcaras, 20, became only the second player to reach the US Open quarterfinals three or more times before turning 21 since 1968, when professional players were allowed to participate in major tournaments.
The only player to reach the US Open quarterfinals more than Alcaras before turning 21 is Andre Agassi (5 times, retired, USA).
Alcaras will compete with the winner of the match between Alexander Zverev (12th place, Germany) and Jannik Sinner (6th place, Italy) to advance to the semifinals.
Alcaras met Sinner in the quarterfinals of this tournament last year and won 3-2 after a fierce battle that lasted 5 hours and 15 minutes. It was the second longest match in US Open history. Alcaras said, “Ever since the bracket came out, everyone was looking forward to a quarterfinal match between me and Sinner,” adding, “Last year’s quarterfinal matchup was one of the best matches of my life.”
Andrey Rublev (8th place, Russia) defeated Jack Draper (123rd place, England) 3-1 (6-3 3-6 6-3 6-4) to advance to the semifinals of the men’s singles. Rublev will face the winner of the match between Daniil Medvedev (3rd place, Russia) and Alex Diminor (13th place, Australia) in the quarterfinals.
