Nadal – Tiafo: Today’s match schedule and where to watch the 16th round of the US Open 2022 this Monday

Rafa Nadal, currently ranked second in the world, has opened a door to the top of the ATP singles rankings. Nick Kyrgios has been in charge of knocking him down, defeating leader and defending US Open champion, Daniil Medvedev, in his third-round matchup (7-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2). The Australian’s victory ensures the appearance of a new name at the top of the rankings at the end of the tournament. Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz and Casper Rudd are among the candidates to occupy the throne. World No. 26 Francis Tiafoe is now standing on his way to the top of Mancori.

Between Rafa Nadal’s eyebrows is the US Open. It would be his fifth victory in the great North American. He comes into his round of 16 match at a great time, after a cramping heat marked by his physical problems, such as that caused him to drop before the Wimbledon semi-finals. He comes after defeating Gasket (6-0, 6-1, 7-5), his great friend and one of his favorite victims. That win equaled Novak Djokovic’s record of consecutive wins without a loss against the same opponent. Plus, he now has an additional motivation: to finish the tournament at number one in the ATP rankings.

Nick Kyrgios has been in charge of giving a cable to Nadal, Alcaraz and Rudd, the three candidates to take that first place at the end of the US Open. The Australian defeats Medvedev, who is still number one, who knows that his hours on the throne are numbered. Kyrgios is having one of his best years since coming on the professional circuit, reaching the Wimbledon final and suffering heavy defeats to rivals who were, a priori, superior. Looks like Medvedev has the remedy, as he was also their executioner in the round of 32 in Canada a few weeks ago. He will face another Russian player Karen Khachanov in the 16th round of the US Open.

Nadal will face 24-year-old American Tiafo, who stood in the round of 16 after beating Diego Schwartzman of Argentina in three difficult sets (7-6, 6-4, 6-4). So far, they have only met twice, with complete victories for the Spaniard, one at the Australian Open and the other at the Masters 1,000 in Madrid, both in 2019. Tiafo still doesn’t know what it’s like to win a set against Manacori, but he isn’t intimidated by the challenge that awaits him: “I’m a different player from 2019. I’m playing much better. It’s mine.” Won’t be the first time and I am looking forward to it. Now I feel I can beat him. I will definitely go to get him”.
