Athletistic/Tennis. The 2016 Olympic doubles champion, Russian tennis player Elena Vesnina commented on the victory of her compatriot Karen Khachanov over Australian Nick Kiryos in the quarter-finals of the US Open.

“I expected Karen to win. I had a feeling he could beat Kiryos. First, Karen has the same powerful serve as Nick. Karen just had a great fifth set: he played mature tennis and experienced. Kiryos plays in a slightly irregular rhythm, he tries to relax the opponent a bit. Karen was more stable and played the game more smoothly. He had a visible game plan, and he acted on it”, Vesnina said.

Karen Khachanov beat Nick Kyrgios 7:5, 4:6, 7:5, 6:7, 6:4. In the semi-finals of the US Open, the Russian will face the representative of Norway Kasper Ruud, who claims leadership in the ATP rankings. The meeting between Khachanov and Ruud will take place on September 9, starting at 22:00 Moscow time.
