  • US Open 2018: Rafael Nadal beats Nikoloz Basilashvili to reach quarter-finals

There was no sign of the strapping under his right knee that had caused agitation during Nadal's four-hour marathon against Karen Khachanov on Friday.

South African Kevin Anderson's grand slam run came to an end as he lost 7-5 6-2 7-6 to Austria's Dominic Thiem in the round of 16 at the US Open, in NY, on Sunday.

Thiem will next play world number one Rafael Nadal, who beat Nikoloz Basilashvili in the fourth round. Novak Djokovic won in three sets.

When world No 1 Rafael Nadal is not striking the ball with his usual impeccable timing, he can always fall back on sweat and toil - the two old friends that have carried him through the first week of this fascinating US Open. Wawrinka, making his first return to the site of his 2016 triumph since undergoing knee surgery, showed he was still shaking off the ring rust despite encouraging victories in the first two rounds.

At 3-all in the fourth set, the Spaniard claimed a decisive break of serve with a wicked victor.

This will be the first time Nadal and Thiem meet away from a clay court, with Nadal holding the edge in their 10 encounters.

Nadal is bidding for his fourth U.S. Open championship and 18th Grand Slam title overall.

Instead, it will be the ninth-seeded Thiem who will face Nadal in the quarter-finals.

The top seed set up a last-eight showdown with Dominic Thiem after snuffing out a comeback attempt by Basilashvili with a 6-3 6-3 6-7 (6-8) 6-4 win.

Nadal has battled through his last two matches to reach the fourth-round in NY.

The top-ranked Spaniard captured his 11th title in Paris by beating Thiem in straight sets in June.

The roof has been closed at Louis Armstrong Stadium.

Anderson's run to last year's final was a surprise, as at No. 32 he was the lowest-ranked U.S. Open finalist in the history of the ATP rankings.

New Yorker drops plans to interview Bannon at festival
The magazine's Twitter team later posted a lengthy statement from Remnick , explaining why they invited Bannon in the first place. By conducting an interview with one of Trumpism's leading creators and organizers, we are hardly pulling him out of obscurity.

Nadal leads their head-to-head 7-3 with all of their matches coming on clay courts.

There are two retractable roofs in use at the Open: the one added to Arthur Ashe Stadium that's been in use for the past two years, and the one at the rebuilt 14,069-seat Armstrong arena, which will host night sessions, too.

The Czech Republic's eighth-seeded Karolina Pliskova defeated Aussie Ashleigh Barty 6-4, 6-4 to progress to the last eight for the third consecutive year. She quickly seized control again after dropping the second, racing to a 3-0 lead in the final set.

American John Isner used a booming serve to reach the quarterfinals by beating Milos Raonic 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2.

The No. 3 seed Stephens will face No. 15 Elise Mertens next.

In the third set, the match suddenly turned into a tight - and enormously entertaining - battle.

The match was delayed for less than 10 minutes.

Isner had the crowd behind him on every point, and the 6-foot-11 American pumped his fist on every victor.

Neither Nadal or Thiem have had comfortable journeys through to the quarter-finals.

The 22-year-old Belgian has now completed a full set of career-best showings at each Grand Slam tournament in 2018.

That will be followed by the top-ranked Nadal's match against No. 27 Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation. This is the earliest the sisters have played each other at a Grand Slam tournament since Venus beat Serena in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open, their first matchup as pros.
