北京时间10月16日的圣彼得堡比赛，比赛4号种子卡尚诺夫在圣彼得堡站的首轮比赛中以6-4 / 6-4击败达克沃思，顺利晋级。
After the game, when Kachanov was asked who Djokovic and Nadal can win more Grand Slam titles, Kachanov said that Nadal should win most of the Grand Slams, although De Jokovic is still very young and in better shape, but he still chooses Nadal. In the 56th confrontation between the Uranus of Serbia and Uranus of Spain last week, Nadal defeated Djokovic 6-0/6-2/7-5 and successfully won his 13th championship in Roland Garros. The trophy is also the 20th Grand Slam championship trophy in his career, tying the record of the Grand Slam championship trophy held by Federer.
比赛结束后，当被问及加德诺维奇和纳达尔谁能赢得更多大满贯冠军时，卡尚诺夫说纳达尔应该赢得大部分大满贯冠军，尽管德约科维奇还很年轻并且状态更好，但是他仍然选择纳达尔。上周在塞尔维亚的天王星与西班牙的天王星之间的第56次对抗中，纳达尔以6-0 / 6-2 / 7-5击败了德约科维奇，并成功在罗兰·加洛斯赢得了他的第13个冠军。该奖杯也是他职业生涯中的第20次大满贯冠军奖杯，与费德腾达会官网勒（Federer）保持的大满贯冠军奖杯的记录保持一致。
"I believe that Nadal will end his career in one of the most important tournaments in the tournament for him," said Kachanov. "Djokovic is obviously younger and many people put (record-setting) )’S'bet' is on him, but for me, the first choice is still Nadal."
