Anderson upsets top-seeded Thiem at Citi Open

Nishikori beats del Potro to reach Citi Open quarterfinals

Russia's Daniil Medvedev upset Bulgarian fourth seed Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-2, firing eight aces and dropping only six points on his first serve in the 63-minute triumph, avenging a June quarter-final loss at Queen's in their only prior meeting.

"Bhambri, who had to play his way into the tournament in the qualifying rounds, faces 6'10" South African Kevin Anderson and his 140 miles per hour serve.

The clock had nearly struck midnight when the 15th seed finally closed out the third-round match with his 21st ace to seal a 6-3 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 ( 9-7) victory in a little under three hours.

Karma did him good for a short while as he saved a match point to win the second set. Sock won the match 7-5, 6-4.

Paul, who has never faced Nishikori, has ousted seventh seed Lucas Pouille and 11th seed Gilles Muller.

Bhambri will be motivated to post another win in Washington, but he has to be at his best to even test Anderson, who has a better experience of playing at big stages.

Thiem had a match point at 5-6 in the third-set tiebreaker but couldn't convert. "I have nothing to lose", said the 25-year-old Delhi lad.

The quarterfinal matchups are Anderson vs. Bhambri, Raonic vs.

" I have practiced with him before but that was a few years ago. I just didn't get the feel of the serve". "I felt I had a shot after winning the second set but got broken early in the third set and it's much harder to come back against a big server", Bhambri was quoted as saying by PTI. "It's a challenge. If I'm taking care of business on my side of the ball, then I give myself the best chance", Anderson said.

Canadian Milos Raonic fell in the Citi Open quarterfinals on Friday, losing in straight sets to Jack Sock of the U.S.
