US Open.. Russian Rublev defeats Cameron and advances to the quarterfinals

Russia’s Andrey Rublev easily advanced to the quarter-finals of the US Open by defeating Britain’s Cameron Norrie in three sets without an answer on Monday.

Unlike his match against Canadian Denis Shapovalov in the previous round, where he needed a playoff in a five-set match that lasted over four hours, Rublev found no difficulty in overcoming Nuri 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. .

“I had a good match,” Rublev said after the match. “I managed to get the result in three sets and I’m very happy.”

“Cameron and I have known each other very well for a long time and I had to do everything in my power to forget him.”

Rublev previously reached the quarter-finals of the US Open twice, in 2017 and 2020, and will face the winner of the match between third-placed Spaniard Rafael Nadal and American Francis Tiafoe, which will take place later.
