The Quarterfinals: Surprise Americans Making Deep Australian Open Runs

The quarterfinals of the Australian Open are underway overnight, and we’ve already seen one player punch her ticket to the semis (#22 Elena Rybakina). The big storyline, though? That’s the number of Americans — and surprise Americans at that — still swinging in Melbourne. While Jessica Pegula is no surprise to reach the quarterfinals, three low-or-no-seeded American men are shocking the world. No. 29 Sebastian Korda took his shot at the semis overnight down under (his match should be wrapped up by this morning’s publish time), while unranked Ben Shelton and Tommy Paul go head-to-head today. At least one American man will reach the semifinals against all odds. Could they do the unthinkable and win it all? Here’s where they stand in Australia as the fields get trimmed to four in the next 24 hours.
