Quarterfinals feature rematch of 2014 men's final

  • Novak Djokovic Marin Cilic Kei Nishikori Madison Keys are quarterfinal headliners

A forehand error from Djokovic let Millman level at 3-3 but the sixth seed carved out three break points in the next game, converting the third before serving out the match and sealing the win with a backhand volley in two hours, 48 minutes.

It's the first time that a Japanese man and woman have made the semis at the same Slam.

@kelli_green added: "millman's gonna get hit with reality tonight... he caught federer on an off night when the weather was so hot." b***, it was hot for millman too and he beat the #2 guy in the world. if he loses to djokovic tonight it won't be because he's a chump. mcenroe is a d***. And he finished with 53 unforced errors.

What channel is Marin Cilic vs Kei Nishikori on? "He's had an awesome tournament", Djokovic said on court.

"From my experience, and I can only talk about myself, this has been definitely the toughest US Open in the last ten years that I have played in in terms of conditions", said the 13-time major victor.

Brewer says that the amount of sand or other granular items can be adjusted to make a court faster.

There was to be no relief on Tuesday, with a heat advisory issued by the National Weather Service thanks to expected temperatures of around 34 C and humidity of 60 percent.

But Djokovic last loss to Nishikori came at the 2014 US Open semifinals.

Normally, players are only allowed to head off the court between sets to change what they're wearing.

Millman's steady baseline game forced Djokovic into exhaustingly long rallies. "I need a rest".

Apple Issues Letter Responding to President Trump’s Proposed Tarrifs
Earlier this year, the company said that as part of tax reform it would spend $350 billion in the U.S. over the next five years. The US has already imposed tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese imports, and Beijing punched back with an equal amount.

Play resumed after about a six-minute delay.

Serena Williams takes on Latvian Anastasija Sevastova, who is through to the last four at a slam for the first time, before the clash between Osaka and Keys.

The 20-year-old said she was nervous, claiming to be "freaking out inside" - though it certainly never showed. Instead, Cilic held and then broke Nishikori on his way to evening the set at 4-all; but then Nishikori took the final two games.

Madison Keys was one of four American women in the U.S. Open semifinals a year ago, when she was the runner-up.

She will face No. 20 Naomi Osaka in Thursday's semifinals.

"Naomi's doing well, because she has won a Masters (Indian Wells in March)".

Schiavone, 38, said she accomplished both her goals as a player, which were to win at Roland Garros and reach the top 10 in the world.

Djokovic, rejuvenated by a fourth Wimbledon title after a spell of struggles with form and confidence since wrapping up the career Grand Slam in Paris in 2016, enjoys an equally comfortable record over Japan star Nishikori.

"It could be another big battle just as at Wimbledon", said Del Potro.

The draw has been set for the 11th wheelchair tennis competition at the U.S. Open. 'If not the quickest, then one of the quickest players on the tour.

Chelsea playmaker Jorginho reveals the four things he misses about Napoli
Victor Moses must improve as a winger for him to feature regularly for Chelsea , according to manager Maurizio Sarri . Jorginho will be back in action for Chelsea after the worldwide break when the Blues face Cardiff at home.

Djokovic admitted this event could be ranked "as the sweatiest Slam ever".

It was first played at the U.S. Open in 2005, but did not have a match in Arthur Ashe Stadium until a year ago.

"There are so many people that stayed at the stadium and its past midnight".

Keys has made it this far in a major for the fourth time in her career.

The No. 20 seed broke Tsurenko in the second game of the match, despite being on the sun-drenched side of the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium and cruised from there.

McEnroe and co-commentators Chris Fowler and Brad Gilbert continued to toe the line between respect and praise throughout the first set. She recovered to win in three sets, with her opponent accusing her of acting after the match. It marked the fourth straight day the extreme heat rule was put into effect. Mini-breaks were aplenty - seven in total - and it was Nishikori's mind games which tricked Cilic into surrendering the set.

"Always exciting to play him".

Osaka was an easy victor in her quarterfinal, eliminating unseeded Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine 6-1, 6-1 in all of 57 minutes. Cilic started well, taking the opening set and going up a break in the second. Nishikori has won eight of the 14 meetings.

John McEnroe has come under fire for his early treatment of Australia's John Millman in commentary at the US Open.

Nishikori is appearing in his third Grand Slam semi-final of his career, all of which have come in NY.
