US Open 2014: Preview of day eleven at Flushing Meadows
Video:The Independent's Paul Newman looks ahead to day eleven at the US Open
After day ten of the US Open ended with Andy Murray crashing out against Novak Djokovic,The Independent's Paul Newman discusses the two men's quarter-finals set to come on day 11.
Number two seed Roger Federer, who won the title five years in a row between 2004 and 2008, takes on the entertaining number 20 seed Gael Monfils. While Federer has not won a Grand Slam since Wimbledon 2012 (when he defeated Britain's Andy Murray) Newman argues that Federer has a good shot at reclaiming the US title after a six-year hiatus.
Monfils got to quarter-final without dropping a set and beating seeds like Grigor Dimitrov and Richard Gasquet.
The other quarterfinal sees number 6 seed Tomas Berdych take on Croatian Marin Cilic. Berdych only won two matches in three hard-court tournaments before this year's US Open, but he has fared well at Flushing Meadows this year, while Cilic has slowly been climbing the rankings after dropping out of the top 40 last year due to a brief suspension relating to a drugs case.
