Rafael Nadal cruised into the quarter-finals of the US Open following a hard-fought 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-2 win over former champion Marin Cilic of Croatia earlier this week.

The Spaniard, a three-time tournament winner himself, dominated on his serve and converted six break points to emerge victorious in two hours and 45 minutes.

And Nadal produced a magical moment that saw him pull off an improbable point.

It happened towards the fag end of the match, when Cilic – up at the net – hit a dropshot volley, prompting Nadal to run forward and to his left and hit a stunning winner from outside the net.

No wonder, Nadal himself appeared surprised with the drop-dead execution while his fans cheered him on at their loudest.

Meanwhile, with the likes of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer already out of contention, Nadal will be the clear favourite for this year’s title.

The 18-time Major winner will face Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman in the last-eight stage.
