Khachanov Upsets Nick Kyrgios

This tournament alone, Khachanov has recorded 89 aces, recording 30 of those in his previous match alone.

In a match that went into the early morning, Khachanov finally defeated Kyrios 7-5, 4-6, 7-5, 6-7 (3), 6-4 , after three and a half hours. The match went back-and-forth multiple times, where Kyrgios made 58 unforced errors to Khachanov’s 31.

With the win, Khachanov becomes one step closer to evening out his head-to-head against Kyrgios. It now sits at 1-2.

He’ll face Ruud in hopes to earn a spot in his first Grand Slam final.

Ruud Rolls into the Semifinals

Ruud has had himself a pretty impressive year so far. The 23-year old is playing with much more confidence and momentum than he has in the past.

He had his work cut out for him, going up against Berrettini in the semifinals, but showed no signs of intimidation, as he came out the gate swinging. He went up 5-0 in the first set, and managed to come out to a 5-1 lead in the second as well.

He defeated the Italian 6-1, 6-4, 7-6(4), to advance to his first semifinal at the US Open, and keeps his dreams alive of being ranked No.1.

Second Meeting

This is just the second meeting between Khachanov and Ruud. The two haven’t faced each other since 2020. That match happened in Rom on outdoor clay, where Ruud won in three sets.

Karen Khachanov vs Casper Ruud Prediction

Khachanov is coming off a strong win over Kyrgios, where his serve dominated the match. This will be a strong asset for him, if he’s able to continue with it.

Yes, Khachanov has a second to none serve, Ruud has arguably been more consistent than his opponent, and is coming off his best match of the tournament. Ruud also brings a bit more experience than Khachanov, as he’s competed in a major final in the past.

But this could go either way, and because of that, look at how many sets it will take for this match to be completed.

Best Bet: Four sets (+175)
