  • Naomi Osaka US Open

"The other time I cried a little bit and there was a lot of people making fun of me", Osaka said during her on-court interview. I was up 4-1 and he came back.

Until Osaka's run this year, the best NY performance by a Japanese woman was 2004 when Shinobu Asagoe reached the quarterfinals.

Osaka faces either USA 14th seed Madison Keys, the runner-up in 2017 or Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro.

Nishikori reached the last four of the men's singles with a 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7/5), 4-6, 6-4 victory over Marin Cilic - the man who beat him in the 2014 final.

"Unfortunately during this tournament, I had many issues with my health, and today was not my day obviously".

IPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 4 leaked in press renders
Today we're learning that the most popular Apple Watch worldwide for Q2 was actually the original Apple Watch series 1 model. The thing that keeps people on edge until the launch of Apple watches is the fact that they keep strict control on leaks.

"I hate matches like this", said Tsurenko.

Keys began her US Open campaign with a confident 6-4 6-4 win over Pauline Parmentier before dismissing her compatriot Bernarda Pera 6-4 6-1.

Osaka, whose father is Haitian, is the first Japanese woman since the start of the Open era to reach the U.S. Open semifinals and the first to reach any Grand Slam semifinal since Kimiko Date did it in 1996 at Wimbledon. But I think [basically] she's more of a power player than I am.

The 23-year-old Olympian has made it into the quarterfinals in three of four Grand Slams this year and this will be her second appearance in the semifinals.

Former world No 4, Nishikori, finally came to life midway through the second set as he extracted a few errors from Cilic and lifted his own game to fight back from 4-2 down to successfully level things up on a sweltering Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Syria blasts at Mezzeh military airport 'not Israeli strikes'
Tehran has provided steady political, financial and military backing to Assad as he has fought back a seven-year uprising. He could not specify their nationalities or whether they belonged to militias or government forces.

US Open tournament director David Brewer said Wednesday night that the Grand Slam event's hard courts were purposely slowed down "a touch" in response to players noting in recent years that the surface seemed to be speeding up.

She's the only member of that quartet who made it back to that round, using her big-strike game built on serves and forehands to overpower No. 30 Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 6-4, 6-3. In her third-round match, she was even quicker, dominating Aliaksandra Sasnovich, 6-0, 6-0, in 50 minutes. So far in this Open, she's held opponents scoreless in three sets, and she's dropped only one set thus far.

It was another hot afternoon Wednesday, with temperatures in the high-80s (30s Celsius) but feeling some 10 degrees hotter with the humidity.

Osaka, who lived in her native Japan until she was 3, started playing tennis in NY after her father saw the Williams sisters playing at the French Open in 1999 and chose to teach his daughters. That win came at the grand stage of Indian Wells, where Williams' two past titles came against Steffi Graf and Kim Clijsters. "I didn't want to show this kind of game in front of this big crowd, but unfortunately I'm just not able to play now".
