Thiem vanquishes Anderson in straight sets at US Open
Kevin Anderson outlasts Denis Shapovalov to reach US Open fourth round

Nadal had to dig deep to beat powerful Russian Karen Khachanov in the third round, fighting back from a set and a break down - also overcoming a slight knee injury - to win one of the most thrilling matches of this year's tournament so far.
Del Potro will no doubt head into that match with real confidence after seeing Thiem's success in hitting through the three-time victor, while the amount of time spent on court can't be helping Nadal's troublesome knee.
In a rematch of the French Open final, the Spaniard was forced to withstand heavy pressure from the Austrian in a dramatic last-eight tie as he triumphed 0-6 6-4 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (7-5).
When asked if he suffered during the match, Nadal said: "That's the right word".
"It's been a great battle", an exhausted Nadal said. "The conditions were tough and very humid", Nadal added. In a June 2017 match at the French Open, then ranked number 63 in the world, Basilashvili lost to Nadal in straight sets in just 90 minutes.
Later Sunday, 2009 champion and Argentine third seed Del Potro will look to make the quarter-finals for the sixth time when he faces Croatia's Borna Coric under the Arthur Ashe lights.
"I love you Dominic Thiem". Responding to the positive energy, Basilashvili said, "A lot of people were supporting me, so it feels really good".
"But I'm really looking forward to play him on a hard court for the first time".
Having survived two five-set thrillers to reach the fourth round, Wimbledon runner-up Anderson ran out of steam and bowed out tamely. Nadal holds a 7 to 3 advantage, though Thiem did beat Nadal earlier this year at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 in Madrid. It has included brief two-set bouts and rugged three-setters, with seven wins for the so-called "King of Clay", and an admirable, tantalizing three victories for his presumed successor.
"I think that moment was the key of the match", Del Potro said in an on-court interview. After the second set, the South African went to the locker room for more than eight minutes, and he regrouped to erase a break point in the seventh game and force a tiebreaker. "Let s keep going". Thereafter he was engaged in a thrilling five-set win over one of the sport's rising stars Denis Shapovalov.
He also hasn't been "bagelled" in a major since the 2015 Australian Open quarter-finals, and it's his first at the US Open since 2004. I'm able to compete with anyone out there, as I showed today.
The 11th seeded American needed five sets to get past Milos Raonic in a battle of the big servers, Isner eventually winning 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2.
"To reach the semi-final again here in NY in my favourite tournament is very special to me", said Del Potro after his eighth win over Isner in 12 meetings.
"He has a big serve and I will try to return his serves if I can".
