Head to head between Nick Kyrgios and Karen Khachanov
It’s 1-1 from their previous encounters, both on hard. While Khachanov won in Cincinnati in 2019, Kyrgios won at the Australian Open in 2020. Both were very close affairs that were decided in the final set.
Kyrgios KO’s the defending champion
Nick Kyrgios maintained his dominance over Daniil Medvedev as the Australian knocked out the defending champion in a grueling set of four on Sunday and reached the US Open quarterfinals for the first time in his ninth appearance in the main draw.
It’s a rivalry between two dynamic players that promises to be one of the biggest for years to come. For the time being, the Aussie has dominated and after another exciting thriller on Sunday, Kyrgios is now 4-1 ahead of Medvedev.
The defeat not only ended Medvedev’s attempt to defend his title, but also knocked him off the top of the rankings, with either Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alacaraz or Casper Ruud set to replace him at the top next week.
Sunday’s dramatic two-hour, 53-minute contest was one of the most anticipated matches of the US Open this year and lived up to its bill as both Kyrgios and Medvedev played at a very high level. It was difficult to separate the two in the opener, which saw 24 points played in the tie-break before Kyrgios clinched 13-11 wins.
Medvedev equalized in the next set before the Australian rushed forward again in set number three, ending the fight in the fourth with a 7-6 (13-11) 3-6 6-3 6-2 win.
Kyrgios was beaten 22-21 but he beat 53 winners, four more than Medvedev. He also converted 5 out of 7 break points and saved 5 out of 8. When it comes to net points, the Australian approached the net 47 times and won 29 of those points, compared to just 10 net points won by Medvedev.
Kyrgios has been in great form lately. He finished second at Wimbledon in his first Grand Slam final and then ended a three-year title drought by winning the Washington Open title. Ranked 25th, Kyrgios has now improved his season record to 35-9 and is 19-3 since the start of Wimbledon.
The 27-year-old started his US Open season with a straight-set win over good friend Thanasi Kokkinakis, then needed four sets to finish off Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi before passing American JJ Wolf in round three. He’s enjoying a purple spot and it won’t be a surprise if he stops winning the tournament.
Khachanov extends dominance over Carreno Busta
Kyrgios will meet Karen Khachanov, another first-time US Open quarterfinalist, who defeated Pablo Carreno Busta in a riveting five-setter on Sunday.
The 4: 6, 6: 3, 6: 1, 4: 6, 6: 3 victory over three hours and 20 minutes improved Khachanov to 6: 3 in a direct comparison against the Spaniard. Also, Khachanov has now won four games in a row against Carreno Busta.
Khachanov was very good on serve, allowing the Spaniard just two break points in the five sets. In contrast, the Russian held 15 break points in the contest and converted five of them.
Khachanov won a total of 140 points, 19 more than Carreno Busta. He hit 11 aces and 43 winners to the Spaniard’s 9 aces and 53 winners, but also had 11 fewer unforced errors than Carreno Busta’s 43.
Khachanov, who improved his season record to 30-20 after the win, will play in the eighth quarterfinal of the season. A win on Tuesday puts him in a first major semifinal. He was in the last eight of two Grand Slams, but lost both.
The 27th seed began his US Open challenge with a four-set win over Denis Kudla. He then prevailed against Thiago Monteiro with a four-set win in the second round. His match against Jack Draper in the third round also turned out to be an exciting fight before the Brit had to retire through injury in the third set.
A quarter-final win can propel the world no. 31 into the top 20 in the rankings, but if he takes on the red-hot Kyrgios, Khachanov will have his task cut out.
