The first two games to finish this Saturday's day at the US Open were resolved by not fast track, but very fast. In the women's draw, Maria Sakkari struck down Amanda Anisimova in 55 minutes and in the men's, Andrey Rublev, tenth seed, 'mistreated' the Italian Salvatore Caruso to beat him with two donuts included in just one hour and 24 minutes, the shortest duration of an ATP match so far in the championship: 6-0, 6-4 and 6-0.

Rublev, one of the three Russians remaining in the tournament (Khachanov fell and Medvedev continues on), finished the first set in 22 '. He punished Caruso (100th in the ranking) with 35 winners and made 15 unforced errors, very few for his aggressive tennis. With the service he was impeccable, in fact, he only lost five points with firsts (33/38), although a serve was broken in the second set. Rublev (22 years old) will meet another Italian on Monday, Matteo Berrettini, sixth seed, who also beat Norwegian Casper Ruud (6-4, 6-4 and 6-2) .

On Arthur Ashe's first shift, Daniil Medvedev, third favorite and runner-up in New York last year, had no problem sending home the quirky JJ Wolf, who sports an eighties look, with long hair and headband, reminiscent of the early days of Agassi. The Muscovite won 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2 in 1h: 48 to enter the round of 16, a round in which he will face the American Tiafoe, who passed over the Hungarian Fucsovics (6-2, 6-3 and 6-2). Medvedev added 33 winners, 13 of them from direct service, and did not mind losing his serve twice, because he accumulated up to seven breaks.

Alex de Miñaur (21st) had to sweat a lot more to get into the round of 16, because his rival was the seed number 11, Karen Khachanov, whom he beat 6-4, 0-6, 4-6, 6-3 and 6-1. The Russian's failures (64) were key in a duel even in terms of intensity and aggressiveness, in which 11 breaks. The Australian will play Pospisil. The one who gave a very good feeling, as in his previous match, is the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime (15th), who did not give any option to the French rapper Corentin Moutet: 6-1, 6-0 and 6-4 on a great day beatings from some of the favorites.

Results of the day.
