The 2022 US Open continues into this week with Italian starlet Jannik Sinner preparing to take on Ilya Ivashka for a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.
Sinner headed into the US Open off the back of an eye-catching Wimbledon campaign and has beaten Daniel Altmaier, Christopher Eubanks and most recently Brandon Nakashima on his way to the fourth round of the US Open.
The Italian now faces up against Ilya Ivashka for a place in the quarter-finals of the competition. Here is everything you need to know about his opponent.
Who is Ilya Ivashka?
Ilya Ivashka is a 28-year-old Belarusian tennis player who headed into the 2022 US Open ranked as the world No.73 with just one career singles title to his name.
The Minsk-born player was far from a household name heading into the US Open but has made up for the lost time in the opening three rounds, causing upsets against Sam Querrey, Hubert Hurkacz and Lorenzo Musetti.
Ivashka now takes on Italy's Jannik Sinner on Monday afternoon for a place in the quarter-finals of the US Open. The pair have never met before at a competitive level, but the win against Sinner's compatriot, Lorenzo Musetti, will serve as a warning sign.
