It's quarterfinal time at the New York Open 2020 as the action continues after a day of upsets at Long Island.

Second-seed, Milos Raonic, fell to Soonwoo Kwon while top-seed John Isner bowed out after losing to Jordan Thompson at NYCB live.

Cameron Norrie, seeded seventh, lost to Jason Jung but defending champion Reilly Opelka has made his way into the last eight.

Opelka faces giant-killer Jason Jung who beat former US Open and Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson before accounting for Cameron Norrie.

The American, on his, part fired 20 aces en route to a memorable win over Yoshihito Nishioka and, on current form, should be able to stop Jung's juggernaut in the quarterfinals.

Ugo Humbert has had a busy 2020 winning the Auckland Open before losing his way a bit in the Australian Open and Sud de France Open - but, the Frenchman is a match away from a semifinal in New York.

The fourth-seed beat Marcos Giron with ease and now faces Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia.

Kecmanovic got past 38-year-old Paolo Lorenzi in the Round of 16 and leads the head-to-head against Humbert 2-0.

The Humbert-Kecmanovic duel will be one to watch out for before Kyle Edmund takes on Soonwoo Kwon who caused a flutter when he beat Milos Raonic.
