Rafael Nadal avoids US Open scare to reach quarterfinals
Rafael Nadal avoids US Open scare to reach quarterfinals

Rafael Nadal was presented with a threat for the first time at this year’s U.S. Open. To anyone besides the 18-time major winner, it would have been.

After dropping his first set of the tournament to Marin Cilic, Nadal snapped back into legendary form, and reeled off nine straight games against the former U.S. Open champion, en route to claiming a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, fourth-round win Monday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The second-seeded, three-time U.S. Open champion will next face 20th-seeded Diego Schwartzman in the quarterfinals.
