衛冕冠軍丹尼爾-梅德韋傑夫說,當他在紐約舉行的美國公開賽16強中遇到同為火力全開的尼克-基爾吉奧斯時,球迷們可以期待意外的結果。

兩位球員都有易燃的名聲,並且不懼怕對裁判甚至球迷說出自己的想法。

"在球場上,我們從來沒有真正地打過架或什麼,這隨時都可能改變,"梅德韋傑夫說。

這位26歲的俄羅斯人在兩人的四次交鋒中輸了三次,他補充說:"你永遠不知道未來會發生什麼,我們都很有電。

"我不認為我們是朋友。當我說'朋友'時,我們還沒有一起去過酒吧,但我覺得我們非常尊重對方。

"這對他來說是3比1,但我這次會努力做得更好,這將是一場讓人們觀看的偉大比賽。"

梅德韋傑夫過去曾與法拉盛草原的觀眾發生過口角,儘管他似乎已經贏得了他們的支持,進入了2019年的決賽,並在去年的決賽中擊敗了諾瓦克-德約科維奇,捧起了他的大滿貫處女作。

與此同時,澳大利亞人Kyrgios也招致了無數的爭議,本周已經因為在戰勝Benjamin Bonzi的比賽中吐口水和說髒話而被罰款7500美元--之後這位溫布爾登亞軍抱怨一位球迷在吸食大麻。

"我知道很多人討厭我的比賽,討厭我做事的方式,討厭我的方式,"27歲的Kyrgios說,他在8月加拿大公開賽的最近一次交鋒中擊敗了梅德韋傑夫。

"我總是在這上面茁壯成長。我從來沒有想過要忘記人們所說的所有事情。我的肩膀上總是帶着這個籌碼。

"當我在比賽時,我的腦海中都是這樣的。我想去那裡。我想在黃金時段出現。我想出現在那個屏幕上,他們都在看的那個屏幕。"

梅德韋傑夫在本周的三場比賽後還沒有丟掉一盤,他的失敗將意味着他在美國公開賽後將失去世界第一的排名。

梅德韋傑夫補充說:"他在那裡(蒙特利爾)肯定設法得到了我的幫助,特別是我想說的是在關鍵時刻,"。

"我知道我必須要做什麼。我知道我必須做什麼,好好發球,努力進入決勝局,嘗試在他的發球局中獲得機會。他也知道他將做什麼。希望我能打出我最好的比賽。"

五號種子Casper Ruud與非種子的法國人Corentin Moutet的會面將於周日17:00在阿瑟-阿什體育場開始。

安迪-穆雷的征服者Matteo Berrettini於16:00在路易斯-阿姆斯特朗體育場對陣西班牙人Alejandro Davidovich Fokina的比賽開始,該體育場隨後將由12號種子Pablo Carreno Busta對陣27號種子Karen Khachanov。

在女子16強中,五號種子、溫布爾登決賽選手Ons Jabeur與Veronika Kudermetova的比賽緊隨梅德韋傑夫-克爾吉奧斯在阿瑟-阿什球場的夜場比賽。

周日早些時候,18歲的美國人Coco Gauff對陣中國的張帥,Alison Risk-Amritraj對陣法國的Caroline Garcia,然後Ajla Tomljanovic--結束了Serena Williams的職業生涯--對陣Liudmila Samsonova。

Defending champion Daniil Medvedev says fans can expect the unexpected when he meets fellow firebrand Nick Kyrgios in the US Open last 16 in New York.

Both players have a reputation as being combustible and are not afraid to speak their minds to umpires or even fans.

"On the court we never really had any fight or anything, which can change any moment," said Medvedev. • None Alerts: Get tennis news sent to your phone

The 26-year-old Russian, who has lost three of the pair's four meetings, added: "You never know what's going to happen in the future, we are both quite electric.

"I don't think we are friends. When I say 'friends', we haven't been to the bar together but I feel like we respect each other a lot.

"It's 3-1 to him but I'll try to do better this time and it'll be a great match for people to watch."

Medvedev has had spats with Flushing Meadows crowds in the past, although he seemed to have won them over by reaching the 2019 final and beating Novak Djokovic in last year's final to lift his maiden Grand Slam title.

Australian Kyrgios, meanwhile, has courted countless controversies, and has already been fined $7,500 this week for spitting and swearing in his win over Benjamin Bonzi - after which the Wimbledon runner-up complained that a fan was smoking marijuana.

"I know a lot of people hate my game, the way I do things, they way I go about it," said 27-year-old Kyrgios, who beat Medvedev in their most recent meeting at the Canadian Open in August.

"I always thrive on it. I never want to forget all the things people say. I always carry this chip on my shoulder.

"I have it all in the back of my head when I'm playing. I want to be there. I want to be on prime time. I want to be on that screen, the screen they're all watching."

Defeat for Medvedev, who is yet to drop a set after three matches this week, would mean he will lose his world number one ranking after the US Open.

"He managed to get the better of me there (Montreal) for sure, especially I would say in terms of clutch moments," Medvedev added.

"I know what I have to do. Serve well, try to get to the tie-break, try to get opportunities on his serve. He also knows what he will do. Hopefully I can play my best game."

Fifth seed Casper Ruud's meeting with unseeded Frenchman Corentin Moutet begins Sunday's action on the Arthur Ashe Stadium at 17:00.

Andy Murray's conqueror Matteo Berrettini opens play against Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina at 16:00 on Louis Armstrong Stadium, which later hosts 12th seed Pablo Carreno Busta against 27th seed Karen Khachanov.

In the women's last 16, fifth seed and Wimbledon finalist Ons Jabeur's match with Veronika Kudermetova follows Medvedev-Kyrgios in the night session on Arthur Ashe.

Earlier on Sunday, 18-year-old American Coco Gauff faces China's Zhang Shuai and Alison Riske-Amritraj plays France's Caroline Garcia before Ajla Tomljanovic - who ended Serena Williams' career - takes on Liudmila Samsonova. • None How to fool the opposition effectively in sport?: Sideways delves into the world of deception • None The raw and honest story of Paul Gascoigne and his turbulent life
