US Open day 8 recap: will it be a clash between Federer and Nadal?

Does the US Open 2019 go towards a final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, after what we have seen in during the 8th day of the New York Slam? Anyway, the quarter-finals are defined: Stan Wawrinka vs. Daniil Medvedev, Roger Federer vs.

Grigor Dimitrov, Matteo Berrettini vs. Gael Monfils, Diego Schwartzman vs. Rafael Nadal (men's singles); Belinda Bencic vs. Donna Vekic, Bianca Andreescu vs. Elise Mertens, Elina Svitolina vs. Johanna Konta, Serena Williams vs.

Qiang Wang (women's singles). The disappointments of the last day are obvious: Naomi Osaka and Alexander Zverev. The Japanese, defending champion, will also lose the first position of the WTA ranking. What else to say about Zverev? The worst thing is that his worst year is not over yet ...

The last day's surprises: Matteo Berrettini, who reached the quarter-finals for the first time in a Slam in his career, is the first one. Donna Vekic, Elise Mertens and Qiang Wang in the women's tournament are the others amazing surprises.

The big chance: Serena Williams has perhaps the greatest chance to reach Margaret Smith's 24 Slam. Much more than in the last three Slam finals played. The American's big rivals are all alreay out: Halep, Osaka, Pliskova, Kvitova.

Who will stop this time her race? Mike Bryan received a fine for pointing his racket against line judge like a shotgun, after the judge missed a call. The penalty is 10 thousand dollars, the highest from the beginning of the tournament among men!

Today begin the quarter-finals. Are there any more surprises waiting for us, or will the top players make the difference? The courts will give us the answers we are waiting for.
