Monfils Outlasts Shapovalov In Epic Five-Set Thriller

Experience prevailed over youth in an epic third-round battle on Saturday between No. 13 seed Gael Monfils and Denis Shapovalov. The Frenchman weathered numerous inspired comebacks from the #NextGenATP Canadian to advance 6-7(5), 7-6(4), 6-4, 6-7(6), 6-3.

“I like the way I am now,” Monfils said. “I like the way the crowd is behind me. I love the energy here. I’m happy.”

Monfils and Shapovalov arrived in top form for their showdown in Louis Armstrong Stadium, having not dropped a set in their first two rounds. They both came out swinging and produced more winners than errors in the opening set, but it was Shapovalov who dictated most of the exchanges with aggressive all-court flair. In what would become a trend throughout the night, the 20-year-old twice fought back from down a break before storming through the first-set tie-break.

The Frenchman produced his own Houdini act in the second set, though. Shapovalov served for a two-set lead at 5-4, but Monfils crawled back by mixing up electric winners with off-pace shots. The No. 13 seed held the lead throughout the tie-break and levelled the match.

Monfils continued to ride his momentum, grabbing the third set with a single break of serve at 2-2 and sprinting out to a two-break, 4-1 advantage in the third set. But with his new coach, former Top 10 player Mikhail Youzhny, urging him on, the Canadian began to resurface. Sensing he had no choice but to gamble, Shapovalov went for broke from the baseline and continued to find the corners. When Monfils failed to serve out the match at 5-4 and sent a forehand wide, the 20-year-old threw his arms up and motioned for the crowd to get out of their seats.

But his biggest comeback was still to come. Monfils rallied from 2/5 in the fourth-set tie-break and earned a match point at 6/5, but Shapovalov bravely erased with it a huge forehand. Two points later, the crowd gasped as Monfils double faulted to send the match to a decider.

The Frenchman showed incredible mental toughness and rebounded immediately, pushing Shapovalov around the baseline to break at 2-1 in the fifth set. Shapovalov saved another match point on his serve at 2-5 with a blistering backhand, but Monfils made good on his third chance and prevailed in three hours and 35 minutes. Both men embraced at the net and an emotional Monfils accepted the roars of the crowd.

“I think people love me because I play with my heart. I fight. It’s always something special with me,” Monfils said. “You never know how and what I can do on the court. I think that’s why the people like that, a little bit [of] mystery part of me.”

Next up for Monfils is Spaniard Pablo Andujar, a winner earlier in the day over Kazakh Alexander Bublik. Andujar is through to the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time at age 33.

Rublev Battles Past Kyrgios In Hard-Hitting US Open Affair

Two years ago when he was 19, Andrey Rublev became the youngest US Open quarter-finalist since a 19-year-old Andy Roddick in 2001. And on Saturday evening, the Russian moved to within one victory of reaching the last eight at Flushing Meadows once again.

In a hard-hitting match, Rublev squeaked past Nick Kyrgios and the Aussie’s 30 aces 7-6(5), 7-6(5), 6-3 to reach the fourth round after one hour and 51 minutes. The 21-year-old upset No. 8 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the first round.

Rublev, who has not advanced past the third round at another Grand Slam championship, has enjoyed a resurgent month on the ATP Tour. At the Western & Southern Open, the two-time Next Gen ATP Finals qualifier defeated Roger Federer for the biggest win of his career. And the 2017 Umag champion has not suffered a letdown in New York, crushing groundstrokes relentlessly to reach the second week.

In the first set, both players dominated with their serve, with neither man earning a break point. And in the tie-break, errors cost Kyrgios dearly. The Aussie made errors he had not been making throughout the first 12 games, including a miss on a sitting backhand volley.

Kyrgios ripped a backhand down the line return at 5/6 that missed by centimetres — if by that much — to give Rublev the lead in the pair’s second FedEx ATP Head2Head meeting. Kyrgios triumphed in three sets last year in Moscow.

The decisive moment in the match came in the second-set tie-break. Kyrgios got off to a much better start, taking a 4/0 lead. But Rublev maintained his focus and with a big return on his first set point, he forced an error from the No. 28 seed. The World No. 43 earned the match’s only break in the third set and rode that to a victory.

Rublev will face No. 24 seed Matteo Berrettini for a spot in the quarter-finals. The Italian battled past #NextGenATP Aussie Alexei Popyrin 6-4, 6-4, 6-7(3), 7-6(2) after three hours and 35 minutes.

Before Wimbledon this July, Berrettini had never reached the fourth round of a major. But now, the 23-year-old has done so at two consecutive Slams.

Berrettini showed his resilience in the fourth set, as it appeared Popyrin had seized all the momentum. The 20-year-old broke for a 6-5 lead after a 10-deuce game. But instead of showing disappointment, Berrettini dug deep to force a tie-break and then he closed out the match, striking 57 winners across the four sets.

Did You Know?
Rublev advanced to his first ATP 500 final last month in Hamburg, where he fell against Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili in the championship match.
