Vandeweghe tops Safarova for 1st US Open quarter

Nadal chases a shot during his win over Mayer

"I know him well", Federer said.

Rublev broke into the top 100 for the first time in June and is now No.53, having won 13 of his last 17 matches.

"He (Dolgopolov) is a player who can play wonderful shots but sometimes he can be very unpredictable so I just waited for my opportunity". Pliskova must reach the final to retain her top spot atop the WTA rankings, while on the men's side, Federer needs to win to have a shot at claiming the No 1 ranking from Nadal.

"Rafa is a real champion".

"I think it's the best match that you can have - as a tennis fan, as a spectator", Moya said.

"It was impossible to win today", said the Belgian.

In the women's quarter-finals, No 1 Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic faces No 20 CoCo Vandeweghe of the US, and 15th-seeded Madison Keys of the US meets 418th-ranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, the first qualifier in the US Open women's quarter-finals since Barbara Gerken in 1981.

Federer was significantly tested with five-set marathons in the first (Frances Tiafoe) and second (Mikhail Youzhny) rounds, but he seems to have found his footing as he puts the back injury that kept him out of the Western & Southern Open further in the rearview mirror.

And that really means buying product ideally made in this country, but that means they'll go out, and they'll spend their money. All I want to do is MAGA (Make America Great Again), Trump added with the slogan of his presidential campaign.

Standing between Federer and a semi-final berth is towering Argentine Juan Martin del Potro, who beat the former-world number one in the 2009 final to lift his only grand slam title.

He will face Juan Martin del Potro in the quarterfinals.

The 32-year-old Kanepi, a former world number 15 whose career was nearly ended by illness and a crippling injury, downed Russia's Daria Kasatkina 6-4, 6-4.

"It was a great match for me against Philipp, he can be very tough but I protected my serve very well and that helped me tonight". To see him back, happy and winning and beating the best players in the world is wonderful for our sport.

In 2016, she appeared just once in Rabat as she battled the effects of Epstein-Barr virus and then painful plantar fasciitis in both feet.

The 24th seed won 1-6 2-6 6-1 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 in three hours and 35 minutes.

Top-seeded Rafael Nadal has taken the first set 6-2 from Alexandr Dolgopolov in their fourth-round match at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
