Daniil Medvedev v Botic van de Zandschulp Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between both players on the tour.
Medvedev Into Quarters Without Dropping a Set
World number two Daniil Medvedev began his quest for a maiden grand slam in New York as one of the favorites after Novak Djokovic, and also one of the potential individuals who could come in the way of a calendar slam for the world number one from Serbia.
It has been a good year for Medvedev but he will be disappointed with some of his results, most importantly his showing in the Aussie Open final at Melbourne against Djokovic.
Medvedev has looked good all week long not dropping a set against Richard Gasquet, Albert Ramos-Vinalos or Pablo Andujar coming into the fourth round against Briton Dan Evans.
The Russian was off to a strong start breaking Evans early to go up 3-1 in the first set and despite Evans having some openings on the Medvedev serve, the number two seed ensured the serve backed him up well as he closed the first set 6-3.
Another early break followed in the second and third sets respectively as he closed those 6-4, 6-3 and wrapped up another straight sets win.
Medvedev is into his third consecutive US Open quarter-final and with Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud eliminated from his quarter, looks a strong favorite to make the final next Sunday here in New York.
Van de Zandschulp Continues Dream Fortnight
Dutch qualifier Botic van de Zandschulp made his debut this year at the majors playing at the Aussie Open where he lost in the first round, but then overcame a two-sets-to-love deficit to upset 19th seed Hubert Hurkacz in the first round of the French Open.
He was a Lucky Loser who qualified for the main draw at Wimbledon due to the late withdrawal from Dominic Thiem, but was eliminated in the second round by eventual runner-up Matteo Berrettini.
The Dutchman is a qualifier at the US Open here in New York, but pulled off a surprise four set win in the second round against number eight seed Norwegian Casper Ruud who has had a breakthrough season this year.
Coming into the round of 16 against Argentine veteran Diego Schwartzman, van de Zandschulp started as the underdog but looked strong off the blocks clinching the first two sets and up a break in the third.
Schwartzman known for his fighting spirit fought hard to break back and clinch the third set 7-5 and then saved match points in the fourth to win another 7-5 set.
Going into the decider and crossing the four hour mark, the Dutchman upped the level as Schwartzman got some physical assistance. Van de Zandschulp closed the set and match 6-1 in the fifth as he continued his fairy tale run making the final eight of the US Open.
Medvedev v Van de Zandschulp Prediction and Tip
The Dutch qualifier has had a phenomenal run defeating Ruud and Schwartzman and outdone all experts making the quarter-finals. However, the journey likely ends here as he runs into Medvedev in clinical form.
Expect Van de Zandschulp to continue his good efforts but will fall short at the hands of the Russian with Medvedev winning in straight sets.
