US Open; Berrettini knocked out in the quarter-finals, Roode in the semi-finals – Tennis

Matteo Berrettini stopped out in the US Open quarter-finals. Casper Rudd qualifies for the semi-finals by beating the Romanian tennis player 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 (4) in two hours and 37 minutes of play. Brittany tried until the last time, having recovered from the sudden departure of his opponent. He put his last energies on the court, snorts and gets angry at himself, and puts his heart into it even before tennis. But this was not enough and he left the place. The Romanian looked tired after the round of 16 of the marathon against Spaniard Davidovich-Fukina (#39 ATP). Coach Vincenzo Santopadre’s tennis player moved poorly from the start, giving the court and space to someone so fast and pivoting around him that he didn’t need any more help. Then since the end of the second set, he at least managed to get into the game, but that only made the score a little less intense. One-way match for group and a half: Blue struggles physically against the Norwegian in agile condition. Berrettini reacts in the final stage of the second set, but does not close the third set despite the break advantage and two set points. In the tiebreak, the Norwegian won the semi-finals at Flushing Meadows for the first time in his career. “I’ve never started a match well,” said the 28-year-old from Oslo, who can still dream of a world throne facing Kyrgios or Khachanov in the semi-finals. With a scary dash at last, Yannick Sener qualified for the US Open quarter-finals for the first time. The 21-year-old from Sesto Pusteria defeated Belarusian Ilya Ivashka 6-1 5-7, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, after more than three hours and three quarters of fighting. Challenging his opponent’s ability to exchange shots without a weight, South Tyrolean was superb in the fifth set when they lost 1-3, dropped in five straight games, and won 20 of their last 23 points. The hero’s reaction one evening marked by a few ups and downs, especially in the serve. Thus the blues becomes two quarters. “Today I was in trouble, I couldn’t play my best tennis – I admit at the end of the match -. In the fifth set I tried to do my best, I did it and I’m very happy. I thank the spectators for staying up late. It’s always great in New York” . Tomorrow, Sener will play a place in the semi-finals with Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, who has won against him two of the previous three that have played in the grand arena. “I know Carlos, I’ve played against him a few times. I will definitely have to raise my tennis level to beat him, do better, and be aggressive in his responses.” This is how Yannick presented the quarter-final match. Alcaraz, ranked 4 in the world rankings and the third favorite at the start of the tournament, beat Croatian No. 15 in the ranking Marin Cilic in five sets, in a match that lasted nearly four hours and ended at 2.30 am in America: 6- 4 3 -6 6-4 4- 6 6-3 The result of Alkaraz in the race to become the world’s number one, as well as the Norwegian Rod after the elimination of Daniel Medvedev and Rafael Nadal in the round of 16 of the US Open. .
