Alexander Zverev is into the U.S. Open quarter-finals with his 15th straight victory.
The No. 4 seed from Germany beat 13th-seeded Jannik Sinner 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (7).
Zverev started his winning streak at the Olympics, where he beat top-ranked Novak Djokovic in the semifinals en route to the gold medal.
Bencic rolls past Swiatek to advance
Belinda Bencic is back into the quarter-finals of the U.S. Open.
The Olympic gold medallist from Switzerland beat Iga Swiatek 7-6 (12), 6-3 to make the last eight in Flushing Meadows for the third time.
The 11th-seeded Bencic pulled out the lengthy first-set tiebreaker, then took the second set in 43 minutes — only about 20 more than the tiebreaker lasted.
Bencic was a semifinalist at the U.S. Open in 2019, the last time she played. She also reached the quarter-finals in her debut in 2014.
Swiatek, the No. 7 seed from Poland who won last year’s French Open, was the only women’s player to reach the fourth round in every major this year.
