Auger- Aliassime Pulls Off Hard Fought Win Against Agut 

Canadian Next Gen star Felix Auger-Aliassime came into the third round of the US Open looking non too convincing as he was pushed somewhat in his earlier rounds and was up against the gritty Roberto Bautista Agut in the round of 32.

Auger-Aliassime started extremely well for a comfortable two sets to love lead breaking Agut once in each set as the Spaniard looked a little tight as the Canadian was serving strong and backing it up with his power game.

When the Canadian broke early in the second, it looked like the match was headed for a straight sets win, but Agut broke right back as he upped the ante and the match saw some brilliant rallies and points thereafter.

Another Agut break followed as he clinched the third set and the fourth set followed a similar course of scintillating shot making as a single break by the Spaniard was sufficient to take it into a decider.

Both players started with some difficult holds, but the Canadian broke first for a 3-1 lead and although he had some difficult holds thereafter, Auger-Aliassime stuck to the course, with strong serving and inspired shot making as he closed the match for a spot in the round of 16 here at the US Open.

Tiafoe Comes Through With Rublev Upset

Frances Tiafoe maybe often regarded as inconsistent and unable to live up to the hype around him,  but he has been pulling off some impactful results in recent times. The American did well to defeat Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Wmbledon opener and then Canadian Denis Shapovalov at the Canadian Masters earlier this summer.

With two comfortable first round wins, Tiafoe was up against it at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Friday playing Andrey Rublev of Russia.  The number five seed Rublev was a strong favorite and things looked to be headed that way when he scalped the first set.

The American came back with some big strokes to prevail in the second and after a topsy-turvy back and forth third set, where Rublev double faulted on set point, the American took a two sets to one lead with an 8-6 win in the tiebreak.

Tiafoe looked to be running away with the fourth set as well as he was up 4-2, but then a strong display by Rublev saw him win four games in a row and take the match into a decider.

Well past 1 am at night, the crowd was still around and got into the fifth set, as Rublev took a 5-0 lead and closed the match 6-1 in the fifth. With a coach like Wayne Ferriera and now with more belief in himself, the American is starting to turn the tide on his career and will look to make an even deeper run next week here in New York.

 Auger-Aliassime v Tiafoe Prediction and Tip

Both players are coming off draining and pulsating five set third round matches, so neither should have too much of a physical advantage over the other as far as being fresh after the last round. It will make for a classic encounter and one that the crowd will get into, in plenty.

Expect an exciting Labor Day Sunday encounter but the Canadian should come through in four hard fought sets.
