Tennis: Medvedev rolls into US Open men’s last 16

Third seed Daniil Medvedev of Russia defeated Jeffrey Wolf of the United States 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 in one hour and 48 minutes to advance into the US Open fourth round on Saturday.

“It’s good that I managed to win in three sets and with a day off and just a three-setter to play, I’m feeling good,” said last year’s runner-up Medvedev.

Despite the easy win, the Russian star said his opponent has a bright future.

“It’s a great result for Wolf because in my first four majors I only won one match,” Medvedev said. “In his first one he has already won two, so I’m sure he’s going to be climbing up the rankings and playing good.”

Medvedev will next face Wolf’s compatriot Frances Tiafoe, who ousted Hungary’s Marton Fucsovics 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the US Open fourth round for the first time.
