New York Open 2020: Day 5 schedule, preview, predictions, and order of play
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.
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.
Jordan Thompson takes on Andreas Seppi after a huge win against John Isner on the black courts. Seppi registered an emphatic victory against Steve Johnson and looks capable of getting the better of Thomson in a contest that is expected to be tight.
