Nadal into semis after big fight from Schwartzman

Nadal into semis after big fight from Schwartzman”

She followed up her upset of defending champion and No1 seed Naomi Osaka by taking the last four games of a 7-6 (5), 6-3 victory over No23 Donna Vekic. At Wimbledon in July, Nadal lost in the semifinals to Federer, who went on to lose a almost five-hour final to Djokovic in a fifth-set tiebreaker.

Dimitrov and Medvedev meet in the first semi-final, a match-up not many would have tipped in the side of the draw which featured Federer and Djokovic. "So it's hard to say where he can arrive, what he can reach because I think nobody knows because he's so young and he continues growing".

"He's serving huge, big forehands, moving well, and big confidence because he's having a great year, so let's see". "I remember also the double-fault; I have to be honest". "It is a missed opportunity. Disappointing now, but I'll get back up, I'll be all right". "Do you?" Federer said when asked by a reporter if he can extend his record Grand Slam trophies.

For Berrettini, it marked the latest triumph in a season in which the 23-year-old Italian won titles in Budapest and Stuttgart en route to a career-high ranking of 20th in June. "But I really believe that I'm going to be in good shape". I was down then I came back. "I admire him, the way he is on the court, like his attitude is something I think it's close to perfection".

"I just won a very important match for me, and it is the moment to enjoy this victory".

He matched Corrado Barazzutti's run to the last four in 1977 after outlasting 13th-seeded Frenchman Gael Monfils 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (7/5) in three hours and 57 minutes.

"I always had the thought in my mind: I need to focus on the next tournament, maybe I can qualify for London, maybe I can be there at the end of the year".

But if Nadal needed a reminder that it will not be all plain sailing in NY, he got one when 20th seed Diego Schwartzman broke his serve four times in Wednesday night's quarter-final.

Nadal battles Argentine Diego Schwartzman in the quarterfinals Wednesday at Flushing Meadows.

Tennis Channel's encore, all-night match coverage will begin every evening at 11 p.m. ET, with the exception of earlier starts on Saturday and Sunday of championship weekend.

Fans can watch the action online via the WatchESPN app and on ESPN.com and via fuboTV.

That pits him against Italy's Matteo Berrettini in the final four, with Daniil Medvedev and Dimitrov going head-to-head in the other semi-final.

Schwartzman, known to be an excellent serve returner, had no aces and only one double fault.

Matteo Berrettini is just the second Italian to reach the men's US Open semi-finals. In the second, Nadal went up 5-1 before Schwartzman made it 5-all.
