Great result for Tiafoe, I loved his passionate celebration afterwards. For Zverev this is the best way to get some well deserved rest towards the US Open, if I didn't miscount he played 13 matches in 13 days including doubles and of course traveling..

Good win for tiafoe, and probably best zverev lost instead of being worn out for USOPEN, with a pointless run the the quarters or something here.

Zverev clearly exhausted. Congrats to Tiafoe for getting it done, but I was not particularly impressed by his performance either. He was hitting pathetic errors left and right and would've been eliminated in two clean sets if Zverev had been even remotely in form.

I didn't watch but this is a great loss. Much needed. He needs to be fresh for USO so he can stop two certain players. He can't go in the USO exhausted.

Not a big surprise. But I rather expected Zverev to run out of gas against Isner in the next round.

3 good weeks in a row are usually unheard.
Good result for Zverev

Great win by another #NextGenner and makes things a bit more fresh. Sascha did flater especially in the 3rd Set, but he fought well to push it that long. I felt Tiafoe had some game to trouble Sascha when he's peaking, so I think he should still trouble a fit A. Zverev. No Top 10'er in this half -- who will grab this very rare opportunity?

Wow didn't see that coming. Sascha playing singles and doubles. Clearly tired.
I think MTF will be in ruins later after Rafa beat Gasquet easily.

What a way to set up match point, too!

Isner most likely.

Every other dangerous opponent (except Querrey) is in Nadal's quarter of the draw

Even though he was exhausted, it was the worst match Sasha has played since Barcelona.
6 breaks, he conceded 3 in Montreal total, and barely over 50% points made on serve are
out of his world.
Confidence boost for Frances, got his 1st top 10 win; he played a good match.

Oh course they are where did you expect them to be?

Even though he is obviously worn out I still didn't see Tiafoe defeating him

Get a good rest Sascha

Zverev looked dead in 3rd set.

Tiafoe is quite entertaining and good player despite his awkward technique. Top20 in the future imo.
