Now that he has beaten Nishikori, he will be taking on Jenson Brooksby – the home favourite, American.

He also became the youngest man from America to reach Round 4 of the US Open since the great Andy Roddick in 2002.

Prior to beating Karatsev, Brooksby earned victories over Mikael Ymer of Sweden in the first round and fellow American Taylor Fritz in the second round.

Both the wins were four-setters.
