Millman's shocking bullying claim after dream US Open

Millman's shocking bullying claim after dream US Open”

Kei Nishikori advanced to the U.S. Open semi-finals on Wednesday with a grinding 2-6 6-4 7-6 (5) 4-6-6-4 win over Marin Cilic, gaining a small measure of revenge on the man who crushed his grand slam dream in the 2014 final.

Millman's upset win against Roger Federer, regarded by many as the best player of all time, in the fourth round of a grand slam was a career highlight for the proud Queenslander.

Osaka became the first Japanese woman in 22 years to reach a Grand Slam semifinal, routing Lesia Tsurenko 6-1, 6-1 earlier Wednesday.

A shirtless Novak Djokovic, of Serbia, smiles during a changeover in a quarterfinal against John Millman, of Australia, at the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018, in NY.

Federer said he had a hard time breathing. One came in the last game as she served for the victory, but she erased it with a forehand victor, part of a 22-10 edge in that category. "This has been definitely the toughest US Open in the last, you know, 10 years that I have played in, in terms of conditions".

Former champions Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will bid to set up a 53rd meeting with victories in the US Open semi-finals on Friday.

"I wish I don't go to five sets every time, " Nishikori said.

"Sure I'm happy I played at nighttime".

"You've always got to raise that bar and I've had a taste of it and I'd love to have a bit more of a feed, " Millman said.

This night was cooler, as the temperature dipped into the 70s, but the humidity was above 80 percent, so with Millman drenched, he sought permission for a wardrobe change at 2-all in the second set.

Just like Federer two nights earlier against Millman, Djokovic looked in distress as Millman toiled valiantly to turn the match into a physical endurance test.

"Whatever the humidity is on outer courts or in the city", Isner said, "I think it's amplified on centre court".

"I was just trying to hang in there and try to find a way to win the match".

Although the scoreline looks straightforward, the match lasted two hours and 49 minutes, with the first set taking an hour and the second 59 minutes.

"They weren't easy conditions but it's the same for both players". "I'm not normally someone who changes full clothes, full kit".

Djokovic was 1/13 on break points when Millman double-faulted on a 14th opportunity at 4-4, volleying the ball away with his foot in annoyance at giving his opponent what he had been unable to take for himself.

"The duo also had a brief chat following the match, with Djokovic saying: "[We were just showing] Respect for each other.

"I think the guy's beat a brick wall once", Millman said, "because he makes you work hard for every point and it's relentless".

Millman, who beat Roger Federer in the previous round, returned after a brief interval but found no joy against Djokovic's serve and the Serb broke the Australian in the penultimate game before serving out the second set.
