2022 French Open finalist Casper Ruud will take on 2021 Wimbledon runner-up Matteo Berrettini in the quarterfinals of the 2022 US Open on Tuesday.
With victories over Kyle Edmund, Tim van Rijthoven, and Tommy Paul, Ruud qualified for a matchup with Corentin Moutet in the fourth round. The Norwegian won five games in a row to hand his opponent a breadstick in the first set, which he completely controlled. In the third set, the World No. 7 was up 4-2 and nearly winning. The Frenchman came back, though, and forced a tie-break, which he ultimately won. In the fourth set, Ruud swiftly recovered and raced out to a 4-1 lead. He didn’t make any mistakes this time, and he finally broke his opponent’s serve to win 6-1, 6-2, 6-7(4), 6-2.
By overcoming Hugo Grenier, Andy Murray, and Nicolas Jarry, Matteo Berrettini advanced to the fourth round. He had to defeat Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in order to advance to the quarterfinals in New York. Davidovich Fokina had a commanding lead of 3-0 after the first set. Later on, he was able to win the set thanks to this. In the decisive set, Berrettini had a 2-0 lead but squandered it. But he managed to get another serve break to go up 3-1. He maintained his advantage all the way to the finish and finally broke the Spaniard’s service to win 3-6, 7-6(2), 6-3, 4-6, 6-2.
