Over for the men’s singles, things are really heating up with today’s matches.
No. 3 Alexander Zverev is challenged by Bernabe Zapata Miralles as he looks to make his first quarterfinal since the French Open last year.
The other two matches could be classics with No. 9 Felix Auger-Aliassime takes on No. 5 Nadal. These two have not faced off since 2019, with Auger-Aliassime making huge strides since then including the quarterfinals in every major since last year's Wimbledon.
In the late match at 2:45 p.m. EST, No. 6 Carlos Alcaraz is challenged by No. 21 Karen Khachanov in another huge clash of talent and styles.
