Nishikori takes revenge on Cilic

Novak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates match point against John Millman of Australia in a quarter-final match on day ten of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Djokovic, the victor in 2011 and 2015, faces Kei Nishikori in Friday's semi-finals, his 11th successive appearance in the last-four.

Osaka, the first Japanese woman to reach a Grand Slam semi-final since Kimiko Date at Wimbledon in 1996, broke Tsurenko five times during a match that only lasted 57 minutes.

For Osaka, who is 20, this is her first trip past the fourth round at a major.

The No.21 seed gave Japan a men's and women's semi-finalist at the same grand slam tournament for the first time in the professional era with his 2-6 6-4 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 6-4.

"I've gotten a lot better managing my emotions once it gets to this part and knowing that everything is going to be probably more amped up", Keys said.

"I personally have never sweat as much as I have here", he said.

Less than 24 hours on from Rafael Nadal's unforgettable victory over Dominic Thiem, Arthur Ashe Stadium played host to a gruelling five-setter between the two players who contested the 2014 men's final.

The Serbian star, who ended a 54-week title drought with his 13th Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, defeated the tenacious Aussie 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 to reach his 11th US Open semifinal in his last 11 appearances.

Former world number four Schiavone, who beat Sam Stosur to win her sole grand slam in Paris, appeared at peace as she explained her decision to retire.

Things started well for the two-time victor as he raced into a 3-0 lead, and despite Millman's best efforts he could not claw the break back as the Serb remained comfortable on serve.

NAOMI Osaka charged into the first Grand Slam semi-final by a Japanese woman in 22 years, routing Lesia Tsurenko 6-1, 6-1 on Wednesday in the U.S. Open quarterfinals.

The hot and humid conditions, which left Federer out of breath, took their toll on Djokovic who looked sluggish early in the second set.

This one wasn't exactly simple for Djokovic: He only converted four of 20 break points.

"I hate matches like this", Tsurenko said.

That point was illustrated during the second set when, in a weird moment, a drenched Millman was allowed to leave the court after the fourth game to change.

'He's got one of the best two-handed backhands in the game and very quick, ' Djokovic added.

"It's cruel, sometimes, tennis", Thiem said, calling the loss "the first really epic match I've played". He was able to come through on only four of his 20 break points.

Two inexplicable double-faults as the Japanese altered his return positions handed Nishikori the initiative and he produced a sumptuous backhand return victor down the line on set point to deepening Cilic's misery. The third set Nishikori won the tiebreak but in the fourth game Cilic served well and naturally equalized.

But he broke back in the match's next-to-last game, then served out the victory at love. "Especially after coming from injury, I think I'm enjoying this challenge".
