The 2012 US Open continued to make their way to the finals as the men only had one match yesterday as 4th seeded David Ferrer battled in the 4th Round against 13th seeded Richard Gasquet and cruised to a win in straight sets 7-5, 7-6, 6-4 and the ladies only had one quarterfinal match #1 seeded Victoria Azarenka needed 3 sets to get past 7th seeded Samantha Stosur 6-1, 6-4, 7-6.
