Two-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal and former U.S. Open titlist Andy Roddick paired up to make themselves fourth-round winners Monday (Sep 4th) at the 2006 U.S. Open.

The second-seeded Nadal will appear in his first-ever U.S. Openquarter final after getting past Czech Jiri Novak 6-1, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. This marks Nadal's fourth appearance at America's Open.

Nadal, who upended world No. 1 Roger Federer in June's French Open final and succumbed to the super Swiss in the Wimbledon finale in July, is now 52-7 overall this season, taking five titles.

The 20-year-old's quarterfinal opponent will be unseeded Russian Mikhail Youzhny, who thumped sixth-seeded Spaniard Tommy Robredo 6-2, 6-0, 6-1.

Roddick, seeded ninth here, routed tired German qualifier Benjamin Becker 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 just one day after the upstart Becker sent tennis icon Andre Agassi into retirement with a four-set victory at Ashe Stadium.

The 25-year-old Becker had just starred for the men's tennis team at Baylor University in Texas.

Roddick, who will appear in his fifth U.S. Open quarterfinal in six years, now awaits the Lleyton Hewitt-Richard Gasquet victor. The surging Roddick is currently riding a 10-match winning streak, including a Tennis Masters Series title in Cincinnati last month.

Unseeded former world No. 1 and former U.S. Open champ Marat Safin blew past 26th-seeded Belgian Olivier Rochus 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 to setup a fourth-rounder against German star Tommy Haas.

The two-time Grand Slam champion Safin beat American legend Pete Sampras in the 2000 U.S. Open final.

In other third-round actions, a 14th-seeded Haas held off 18th-seeded American Robby Ginepri in a tough five-setter, 7-6 (7-1), 6-4, 3-6, 3-6, 7-6 (7-1).

Haas had dropped his previous seven five-set matches, including one at the hands of Ginepri in the third round here a year ago, as Ginepri soared all the way into the U.S. Open semis.
