Tennis fans will have to wait at least one more year to see Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer play at the US Open. A day of unyielding rain produced a night of unparalleled tennis on Day 8 at the US Open – but on a brilliant night, nothing was more captivating than Tommy Robredo’s shocking three-set upset of the five-time champion. Amazingly, that turned out to be the most lopsided result among the men’s matches on Monday evening, with David Ferrer needing a physical four sets to oust Janko Tipsarevic, Rafael Nadal also needing four to top Philipp Kohlschreiber and Richard Gasquet going the distance on Court 17 to outlast Milos Raonic.
In women’s action, it was a tough day to be young. Upstarts Camila Giorgi, Simona Halep and Alison Riske, all 23 or younger, all fell – to veterans Roberta Vinci, Flavia Pennetta and Daniela Hantuchova, respectively. Not counting Victoria Azarenka and Ana Ivanovic, who play on Day 9 for the last spot in the quarterfinals, the average age of the 2013 US Open women’s quarterfinalists is 29, with five of the seven women checking in at 30 or older.
Here’s a recap of the day that was and a look ahead to Day 9 at the 2013 US Open:
Match of the Day: You can make that record for Tommy Robredo now 1-10 against Roger Federer. Robredo entered Monday’s match winless for his career versus the legendary Swiss and 0-7 in fourth-round matches in his career in Flushing Meadows; Federer, by contrast, was 9-0 in the round of 16 in his last nine US Opens prior, 2004-12. But in his first contest outside Arthur Ashe Stadium since 2006 – the match was moved to Louis Armstrong Stadium because of the afternoon rains – Federer struggled to corral his usually fearsome forehand, while Robredo was brilliant, taking huge cuts from the backcourt and pulling off perhaps the most shocking result of the tournament in a three stunning sets, 7-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Player of the Day: Tommy Robredo could make a solid case for nearly every Day 8 award, but in the interest of sharing the wealth, we’ll extend this honor to a very deserving – and largely overlooked – Italian. During this year’s US Open, Roberta Vinci has arguably received the fifth-most press among Italy’s women, behind her doubles partner, Sara Errani, who was seeded No. 4; former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, who played Opening Night against Serena Williams; Flavia Pennetta, who upset Errani in the second round; and Camila Giorgi, who dazzled the crowd in her third-round upset of Caroline Woznicki. Vinci put herself firmly in the spotlight on Monday, however, bouncing back from a first-set deficit to defeat Giorgi, 6-4, 6-2. The No. 10 seed won 11 of the last 13 games in the match to advance to the US Open quarterfinals for the second consecutive year.
Player of the Day (late night edition): Richard Gasquet has long been dogged by a reputation as a talented underachiever, but he showed great mettle Monday night. The Frenchman rebounded from two-sets-to-one down, saved a match point in the fourth-set tiebreak and played a wonderful final stanza to emerge with a 6-7, 7-6, 2-6, 7-6, 7-5 victory over the talented Canadian Milos Raonic in four hours and 40 minutes – the longest match of the tournament thus far. With the win, Gasquet moves into the quarterfinals at the US Open for the first time and into a Slam quarter for just the second time in his career (2007 Wimbledon).
Upset of the Day: Simona Halep entered the fourth round as the hottest player on tour, coming off a scorching summer and riding an eight-match winning streak. Flavia Pennetta entered the Open at No. 83 in the world, which would be her lowest year-end ranking since 2002 had it held through season’s end. It won’t. The Italian pulled off her second significant upset of this year’s Open – she defeated countrywoman and No. 4 seed Sara Errani in the second round – eliminating the rising Romanian, 6-2, 7-6, to reach the quarterfinals in Flushing Meadows for the fourth time.
Quote of the Day: "Not that much of a disappointment at the end of the day. If I'm playing like this I'm not going to beat Rafa, or Kohlschreiber for that matter." – Roger Federer, after losing to Tommy Robredo in three sets in the fourth round, scuttling a potential quarterfinal against Rafael Nadal
Looking Ahead: The first two semifinalists of the US Open will be decided on Wednesday in women’s singles: Serena Williams is a heavy favorite against Carla Suarez Navarro and Li Na the popular choice to defeat No. 24 Ekaterina Makarova, who last round dismissed No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanksa in the biggest upset (by seed; see Tommy Robredo for shock factor) of the tournament thus far. In men’s action, Lleyton Hewitt will attempt to keep his renaissance run going against Mikhail Youzhny, and Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych will be looking to continue their easy runs through the draw and pull into the quarterfinals.
