Danil Medvedev stormed into the U.S. Open quarterfinals with a dominant 6-4, 6-,1, 6-0 win over a Frances Tiafoe at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Danil Medvedev stormed into the U.S. Open quarter-finals with a dominant 6-4 6-1 6-0 win over a listless Frances Tiafoe at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Monday.

The Russian third seed, who lost an epic five-set final to Rafa Nadal at Flushing Meadows last year, barely broke a sweat in the evening match as American Tiafoe’s resistance crumbled after going down a break in the second set.

With top seed Novak Djokovic disqualified on Sunday for hitting a ball into a line judge, Medvedev is now backed to win his first Grand Slam title in New York.

He will face 10th seed and fellow Russian Andrey Rublev for a place in the semi-finals.
