Dominic Thiem wins fourth set to draw level with Rafael Nadal

Nadal advances to face Thiem in U.S. Open quarterfinals

"Going to be an interesting one, tough one for both of us".

Six-time champion Williams, 36, faces Estonian Kaia Kanepi, who knocked out world number one Simona Halep and has yet to drop a set at the tournament.

The American fired 56 winners and 20 aces to down the former world number three in front of a rowdy, elated crowd inside the refurbished Louis Armstrong Stadium.

"It was one of my best matches ever‚" Thiem said.

He said he has a good off-court relationship with his fellow clay-court maven and that Thiem deserves to be here after losing a heartbreaking match to Juan Martin del Potro in the fourth round a year ago in which he held an early two-set advantage.

Defending champion Rafael Nadal's progress into the US Open quarter-finals was far from smooth as he needed four sets to beat unseeded Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili.

The second 2018 US Open Men's Quarterfinals tennis match tonight pits top-ranked Rafael Nadal again Dominic Thiem (9) on ESPN TV.

On a partly cloudy day at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, Basilashvili managed to convert only two of his seven break points and in fact committed 50 unforced errors to Nadal's 19. Anderson went into Sunday's match with Thiem boasting a 6-1 record with his only loss against the Austrian on clay in Madrid this year.

"He's a fantastic player", said Nadal.

Roger Federer beats Yoshihito Nishioka at US Open to reach second round
She faces Cîrstea, who was nearly beaten by American Alison Riske, before making a comeback to beat Riske 7-5 in the decider. The 37-year-old hit 56 winners as he put on another show in Arthur Ashe Stadium , easing to a 6-2 6-2 6-4 victory.

With the mercury hitting 35C and humidity at about 50 per cent, the US Tennis Association invoked its new extreme heat policy, which allowed the players to take a 10-minute break after the third set -while officials called a halt to junior matches on the outside courts for more than two hours. "He's a great guy", Nadal told reporters.

"I'm very happy to be through". A fifth consecutive career victory over Cibulkova will see Keys meet either Maria Sharapova or Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro in the quarter-finals. I'm really looking forward to play him on hard court for the first time.

"That was an incredible match", the 32-year-old said. He was off court for almost five minutes‚ but when he returned he showed no ill effects‚ breaking Shapovalov in the sixth game of the set for a 4-2 lead.

The ninth-seeded Austrian's three other appearances in the last-eight of a Slam have all been on the clay of Roland Garros in 2016, 2017 and 2018. To compete with him well, I always have to have a great day, and I have to play well. "I lost the third set, I think playing a good tiebreak".

Isner came through a five-setter with Milos Raonic, who was hampered by a "sharp feeling" in his hip during the closing stages of the match.
