Tuesday’s quarterfinal matchups
No. 3 Sloane Stephens vs. No. 19 Anastasija Sevastova
Arthur Ashe Stadium, noon
Stephens, the defending champion, will be looking to continue her dominant run at this year’s U.S. Open, having already beaten Victoria Azarenka and Elise Mertens on her way to the quarterfinals. However, Stephens’s counterpunching baseline game might struggle against Sevastova, who tends to keep her shots varied in order to keep her opponent off rhythm. This is Sevastova’s third straight quarterfinal at the U.S. Open, and she’ll be hoping to finally break through into the semifinals, something she hasn’t been able to achieve at any major. On the other hand, Stephens is aiming to be the only woman to defend a Grand Slam Championship this year.
