2009 US Open Day 9

Another shocker on Day 9 as #2 Andy Murray is knocked out by #16 Marin Cilic in straight sets. Murray looked tired and beaten from the very first set as Cilic simply overpowered him. It is Cilic’s first visit to the quarterfinal round of a major.

#3 seed Rafael Nadal advanced, needing a set to warm up before dominating Gael Monfils.

#6 Juan Martin Del Potro easily handled #24 Juan Carlos Ferrero in straight sets.

#11 Fernando Gonzalez came from a set down to win over #7 Jo Wilfried Tsonga.

Kim Clijsters and Serena Williams both won in the women’s quarterfinals and will meet in the semis.
