US Open: Stan the Man into Third Straight Quarterfinal

Stan Wawrinka (VCORE Tour GSHT-PRO) got one step closer to his first US Open title on the tournament’s eighth day, the 2015 Roland Garros champion ousting local American favorite Donald Young with his signature brand of explosive power.

Stan opened serving strong, quickly rushing to a 3-1 lead after a break, summarily seizing the first set. The second set went in the American’s favor, but the Swiss came back with a vengeance in the third. The World No. 5 would proceed to sprint to a 5-0 lead in set 3, his dynamic shots piling ever-increasing pressure upon the 26 year old. Young’s returns proved no match for Stan’s rock-solid serve, who would seal the match by way of a backhand volley. The final score came to 6-4, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.

This marks the sixth consecutive time that Stan has made it into a Grand Slam quarterfinal, marking the first time he has advanced to the last eight at all four of the season’s Grand Slams. This also marks his third consecutive time in a US Open quarterfinal.
