One semifinal on the ATP side of the draw is set; as world No. 5 Daniil Medvedev will face former world No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov — who upset current world No. 3 Roger Federer as a +800 underdog on Tuesday night.
On Wednesday, four players will battle to play in the semifinal on the bottom half of the men’s singles draw – with Gael Monfils and Rafael Nadal listed by oddsmakers as the favorites to advance.
This is the ninth career appearance in a slam quarterfinal for Monfils, and he is just 2-6 in those previous matchups; only making the semifinals previously at the 2008 French Open and the 2016 US Open.
Meanwhile, this is the ninth quarterfinal that Nadal has reached at the US Open alone. Rafa is 7-1 to date in this round, with his only loss coming against Mikhail Youzhny in 2006; and he’s won this tournament outright three times (2010, 2013, 2017).
After two moneyline upsets on Tuesday, will Wednesday see chalk or can either Matteo Berrettini or Diego Schwartzman make their first slam semi-final?
