American Frances Tiafoe, the No 22 seed, reached the last 16 of the US Open by winning against Argentinian Diego Schwartzman, the No 14 seed, 7-6 (7), 6-4, 6-4 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City on Saturday.

Tiafoe was down 5-2 in the first set and had to save two set points at 5-4 before getting another break back at 6-5, and then had to come back again from 6-3 down in the tie-break before clinching that set 7-6(7). As if it was to be the trend of his match, the American was also down a break in the second set (2-0).

Tiafoe, ranked No 26, will now play the winner of the match between Frenchman Richard Gasquet and Spaniard Rafael Nadal, the second seed, next. This is the third year in a row that he qualifies for the fourth round here.

The American beat Marcos Giron (7-6, 6-4, 6-3) and Australian Jason Kubler (7-6 (3), 7-5, 7-6 (2)) in the previous rounds. Earlier in the tournament, Schwartzman, ranked No 16, benefited from the retirement of American Jack Sock (3-6, 5-7, 6-0, 1-0) and won against Australian Alexei Popyrin (7-6 (3), 7-5, 7-6 (6)).
