The US Open have reached the latter stages and we are closer to finding out who the champion will be on both the men’s and women’s side.
It has been an interesting nine days so far and we are down to the last 8 on both sides of the tour.
On the men’s side it is a surprising field which does not involve any of the big three or Stanislas Wawrinka. Those four have won 59 Grand slams since 2004. Lurking in their shadows is a large and potential players called the Next Gen who are ready to dethrone the game big three.
Seven out of the eight quarter finalists can still be seen as the Next Gen, Dominic Theim at 27 years of age leads the pack which includes Denis Shapovalov, Borna Coric, Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev, Daniil Medvedev and Alex De Minaur who are all 24 years or younger.
The Last quarter finalist is Pablo Carreño Busta who is 29 years old and can not be called Next Gen
