In an electrifying match that had tennis aficionados on the edge of their seats, Russia’s Daniil Medvedev fended off a tenacious performance by Argentina’s Sebastian Baez to make it into the coveted last 16 of the US Open.

The 27-year-old Russian, who claimed the US Open championship in 2021, finally cinched the win at his fourth match point, at the ungodly hour of 1:30 a.m. local time, with a scoreline of 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 (8-6).

Exhausted but elated, Medvedev shared his post-match sentiments, saying, “I’m ready to hit the sack. Glad it didn’t drag on until 4 a.m.” He also noted that playing at 11 p.m. was “no picnic,” particularly since he decided against a pre-match nap and consumed a meal instead, which left him feeling less than stellar during the game. “That contributed to my jitters throughout the match,” he added.

Next in line for Medvedev is a fourth-round faceoff with Australian 13th seed Alex de Minaur, who effortlessly dispatched Chile’s Nicolas Jarry in a match that wrapped up in just an hour and 44 minutes with a 6-1, 6-3, 6-2 score.

Meanwhile, Italy’s Jannik Sinner, the sixth seed, sent former champ Stan Wawrinka packing in a 6-3, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 victory. The 22-year-old will square off against Germany’s Alexander Zverev, who himself emerged victorious against Bulgarian 19th seed Grigor Dimitrov with a topsy-turvy 6-7 (2-7), 7-6 (8-6), 6-1, 6-1 win.

And let’s not forget Russia’s Andrey Rublev, who clinched his spot in the last 16 by defeating France’s Arthur Rinderknech in a 3-6, 6-3, 6-1, 7-5 nail-biter. The eighth-seeded Russian will go racket-to-racket with Britain’s Jack Draper, who has made it to the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time, following a victory over Michael Mmoh.

Draper, aged 21, remains the last Brit standing in the singles draw, as Cameron Norrie succumbed to Italy’s Matteo Arnaldi and defending champion Carlos Alcaraz ousted Dan Evans.

Adding a dash of spice to the upcoming matches, Jannik Sinner and the top-seeded Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz could potentially clash in the quarter-finals, reprising their epic five-setter from last year that ended at a record-shattering 2:50 a.m. local time.
