Belarusian Ilya Ivashka moved into the last 16 of the US Open for the first time in his career with an upset win over the No 26 seed Lorenzo Musetti in New York City on Saturday.

Ivashka needed two hours and 47 minutes to complete the 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to reach the second week at a Grand Slam for the second time in his career. He also reached the round of 16 at Wimbledon 12 months ago.

This was the third consecutive match that Ivshaka won in four sets – he beat American wildcard Sam Querrey (4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (8), 6-3) and Pole Hubert Hurkacz, the No 8 seed (6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3) for the loss of one set each earlier in the week.

Ivashka, ranked No 73, will face Jannik Sinner, the No 11 seed, who defeated American Brandon Nakashima in four sets.
