Davidovich and Carreno enter the second week


The Spaniards eliminate Galán and De Miñaur respectively and enter the round of 16 of the US Open

With Carlos Alcaraz and Rafa Nadal stumbling over the draw, Alejandro Davidovich and Pablo Carreño, without making too much noise, are already in the second week of the US Open by knocking out Daniel Galán (6-4, 5 -7 respectively). , 6 -4 and 6-4) and Alex de Miñaur (6-1, 6-1, 3-6 and 7-6 (5)).

For the second time in his career, Davidovich reaches the round of 16 of the US Open (he already did it in 2020, when Alexander Zverev knocked him out) after beating a dangerous Galán who had grown up after giving the tournament a surprise and Stefanos had defeated Tsitsipas in the first round.

The Colombian was close to forcing a fifth set and led 4-2 in the fourth, but Davidovich didn’t lose a face in the set in the best season of his sporting career, winning in the last four games to draw the first. round of 16 at a Grand Slam of the campaign. The man from Malaga had resisted in a ‘major’ the second week, after making the quarter-finals at Roland Garros in 2021.

With this result, Davidovich climbs to 27th place in the ranking at the end of the US Open, the best ranking of his career. His next rival will be Italian Matteo Berrettini, who defeated Andy Murray in the third round (6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (1) and 6-3). Davidovich already knows what it’s like to beat the Roman as he beat him in Monte Carlo in 2021. If he beats him again, the Malaga man will be among the top 25 in the world for the first time in his career.

More used to the second week of the US Open is Pablo Carreño, who has stepped on this one three times in his career and reached the semifinals the previous two weeks. The Spaniard had the pleasure of eliminating De Miñaur in four sets and with a balloon under his legs as the last point of the match. Carreño is in the part of the season he’s best at, remembering the title in Montreal this year and the US Open semifinals in 2017 and 2020.

Gijon’s will take on Russia’s Karen Khachanov in round 16, who will arrive more rested after his third-round rival, Briton Jack Draper, was out due to a hamstring injury in the third set. Carreño and Khachanov know each other perfectly, having met eight times, with the Muscovite leading 5-3. Khachanov has won four of his five hard-court encounters, including the semifinals of the 2021 Olympics. Carreño’s last win on cement dates back to the Montreal Masters 1,000 in 2017.
