US Open – Pocket book 5: Medvedev the fallen king, Kyrgios 3.0, Garcia begins to consider it and the humorous anecdote about Federer –

Finish of the course for the defending champion and world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev, crushed by a decidedly “new” Nick Kyrgios for just a few weeks. Among the many girls, it’s Caroline Garcia who impresses. Titled in Cincinnati by impressing her world, the Frenchwoman appears much more stable in Flushing. It guarantees, whereas Frances Tiafoe delivered a bit anecdote mixing Serena Williams and Roger Federer, the retired and all quickly to be retired.

KYRGIOS ABAT MEDVEDEV… It was probably the most anticipated match of the week, if not the fortnight, and it delivered on a few of its guarantees: the poster between Daniil Medvedev and Nick Kyrgios summoned the electrical energy so tasty from the night time classes new- yorkers. With, in the long run, the autumn of the king of the US Open (7-6 3-6 6-3 6-2). The brand new Kyrgios, with its 3.0 replace, extra critical, extra dependable, extra practical, extra lucid, in brief “extra every little thing higher than earlier than”, evolves in the identical mode as at Wimbledon. At instances, it is enormous. It is as much as Karen Khachanov, lastly winner of a top-15 Grand Slam (Pablo Carreno Busta, 4-6 6-3 6-1 4-6 6-3), to come back up in opposition to it!

GOODBYE THRONE! The Russian may also lose his place as world No. 1 (which may go to Carlos Alcaraz, Rafael Nadal or… Casper Ruud). A fall with out shock, to listen to Medvedev, who admitted not having felt properly, after having particularly “caught the die due to the air con, horrible right here“. Earlier than including, nice lord: “After which, I used to be not adequate to stay world No. 1…“Roger Federer due to this fact stays the final participant to have stored his American trophy from one 12 months to the subsequent (2004-2005-2006-2007-2008). Earlier than the Basel, it was in one other millennium (Patrick Rafter, 1997-1998).

BERRETTINI RESPONDS PRESENT… We have been anticipating him across the nook, after his pressured withdrawal from Wimbledon, and now Matteo Berrettini responded on Sunday. Challenged by the at all times inconceivable Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, the Italian did not surrender something aside from 2 rounds. His head held up, his nerves too, the identical for his arms. Sturdy. Winner in 5 units (3-6 7-6 6-3 4-6 6-2), the finalist of “Wimb” 2021 let his pleasure burst. He goals of a course much like that of 2019, when he reached the final sq. in New York. Casper Ruud won’t, nevertheless, seem as an expiatory sufferer in opposition to him on Tuesday.

RUUD HOLDS ON… As a result of sure, Casper Ruud and his unexciting tennis are within the quarter-finals. The Norwegian may have unrolled in opposition to Corentin Moutet, however he obtained tousled in a third set which stretched out his arms, since he was main 6-1 6-2 4-2. Compelled to combat yet one more set, the winner of the Geneva Open nevertheless didn’t tremble. After his match, he confirmed feeling higher and higher on this floor. From there to seeing him on the gates of the world throne…

BENCIC ON THE COUCH… Eradicated with out glory within the third spherical on Saturday, Belinda Bencic put an finish to a 2022 Grand Slam season made of massive failures. In step with her Olympic title and her good habits on the Fed Cup, we had (naively) imagined that the Saint-Galloise had crossed a course and will tackle one other dimension. Wrongly. At the very least for now. Little doubt the Olympic champion must change one thing in her method, particularly mentally. And round him. In the long run, uncommon are the “boyfriend-girlfriend” or “dad-daughter” {couples} that give outcomes. The change is now?

NADAL INCREASES… Dangerous information for the remainder of the lads’s draw: Rafael Nadal is gaining momentum. After having sprayed an 18th time a Richard Gasquet who by no means made him sweat, the Spaniard assured to have performed his greatest match of the match: “I’ve made important progress, we should proceed“. However, as typically, the previous (and future?) world No. 1 stays on his guard earlier than his spherical of 16 in opposition to Frances Tiafoe: “He’s extra stable than earlier than, he has improved, he’s taking part in properly, with a variety of ardour and vitality… I must enhance my stage and my depth…“We nonetheless have the impression that the Iberian can be powerful with Tiafoe (thanks Philippe Bouvard).

SERENA IRONIZED ABOUT FEDERER… Anecdote delivered by Frances Tiafoe. Referred to as to speak about Serena Williams, Nadal’s future opponent indulged in what the “Queen” had informed him about Federer: “We have been taking part in in opposition to Federer and Belinda Bencic within the Hopman Cup and Federer gave him 2 aces. Serena checked out me and mentioned, ‘How may this man be giving me aces? Come on, don’t fret, we cannot lose… After which if we lose, I’ve 23 Grand Slams and he has 20…‘”

WISELY GARCIA! Caroline Garcia is flying once more and it is frankly not dangerous to see! Quite the opposite, even: the Frenchwoman has regained the type of her life, the one which had introduced her near the WTA podium between 2017 and 2018. Titled on August 21 in Cincinnati after an unbelievable profession (Sakkari, Mertens, Pegula, Sabalenka and Kvitova had seen nothing however play), “Caro” exploded everybody at Flushing Meadows, like Alison Riske on Sunday (6-4 6-1). “We don’t have the sensation that she is overplaying, she is answerable for what she produces and it’s a signal of maturity“, welcomes Amélie Mauresmo in L’Equipe. Sure, Garcia produces a tennis of future winner. However what does Coco Gauff suppose? Their confrontation on Tuesday is as anticipated as Medvedev-Kyrgios. That’s to say!
