Jack Draper’s run at the US Open is over after eighth seed Andrey Rublev proved too strong for the Briton in the fourth round on Monday.

The 21-year-old was the last of seven Brits standing in the singles at Flushing Meadows, having reached the second week of a Grand Slam for the first time.

But the British number five, ranked 123 in the world after a spate of injuries, was eventually outplayed by Rublev in a sticky encounter under the roof of Louis Armstrong Stadium, the Russian advancing 6-3 3-6 6-3 6-4.

Rublev will face Daniil Medvedev or Alex de Minaur on Wednesday for a place in the semi-finals – the pair who are last up on Louis Armstrong on Monday.
