Danio Medvedev is putting in a great performance in the US Open 2021. In the four matches held so far, he has not lost a set. On Sunday, in the 1/8 finals, the second-seeded Russian, who reached the New York Championship final two years ago, beat Daniel Evans 6:3, 6:4, 6:3.
Medvedev had a duel Sunday under complete control. In 103 minutes of competition, he sent 13 aces, with his own pass he won 58 of 78 moves, used five of his eight break points, served 43, and scored 94 points overall, 33 more than Evans.
In terms of the entire game, I liked the way it was served the most. I have good memories from here. In 2019, I made it to the final here. Now I’d like to play in the final again, to have another reason for the memories – hopefully better – said Medvedev in an interview on the court, who was in the 1/8 finals of the US Open for the third time in a row.
The Russian’s opponent in the quarter-finals will be the star of the tournament, Butch van de Zandschulp. The Dutchman, the 117th Global Singer who made his way into the main category through elimination, on Sunday after four hours and 11 minutes of fighting won 6:3, 6:4, 5:7, 5:7, 6:1 with the number 11. Diego Schwartzman.
Before the US Open, 25-year-old Van de Zandschulp won only two Grand Slam matches in his career. I think that before the tournament no one expected that I would reach the quarter-finals. “I hope they will be proud of me back home,” said the Dutchman.
