US Open ’23: Men’s Day 4 final results

FLUSHING MEADOWS, NY – For a second-round day, some pretty tasty matchups in store – most of which didn’t quite pan out as hoped.

Dimitrov (who just came back from an 0-2 deficit to win in five in his first round for the FIRST time in his career – he was 0-28) played Andy Murray and routined him.

Gaël Monfils plays Andrey Rublev. But the Frenchman really didn’t have a lot.

And John Isner plays his second “this might be the last of his career” match against countryman Michael Mmoh. And he could actually win. Should have won. Lost in a fifth-set match tiebreak. Appropriately.

We were also liking Hurkacz-Draper. But Hurkacz clearly wasn’t up to it physically.
