With Rafa out, I hope Tiafoe (the 22 seed) wins .

Per ESPN, If both Alcaraz and Ruud lose before the final, the first post U.S. Open ranking will have Rafa at #1 in the world.

First time since 2000 that the 1 and 2 seeds in men's singles at the U.S. Open are out before the quarters.

I don't think he will win this year, but I can see him winning the US Open in the future. He's fun to watch.

Tell that to the nominal #2 seed at the US Open. Methinks that young lady would have wanted ANY wildcard entry except Serena, who did in fact beat her on that particular day.

Is there any 40 year man who could beat #2 seed Nadal, even on his worst day in a major tournament?

Not surprised by Tiafoe beating Nadal. If you just only watched tennis the last 6 weeks, there wasn’t much you’d see that would suggest a disparity in performance.
As for these organizers, these clowns shouldn’t be running even a lemonade stand. Eight matches. Two indoor courts. You start at 11 am. You knew the chances of rain were highly probable. To have those opening matches delayed twice, including to dry the court, showcases the incompetence. It’s asinine for these matches to always start way later than they should. Well after midnight on a weeknight local time? Good grief. Tennis is the only sport that I swear, intentionally wants to turn off the general public and not grow its brand.

I've said for a while the Tiafoe, while on, looks like he can beat anybody but it seem after a set and a half he loses focus or stanima or something. Maybe this is his turn around.

Oh man, Kyrgios is out! It was a heck of a fight too! Quality tennis between him and Khachanov!

I was kind of sad to see him lose but he could use a little sports psychology to help him deal with the anger. Still, I like the guy and he's quite a talented player.

Love that some of the Open matches are played in the evening..
