US Open Semifinals: Who can spoil an All-American final?

Japan's Kei Nishikori advances to the semifinals of the US Open.

It has already been a successful return to Flushing Meadows for Nishikori who missed the U.S. Open past year with a wrist injury that saw his ranking plunge and put him on the comeback trail that included playing Challenger-level tournaments.

Osaka will next face last year's beaten finalist Madison Keys, after the highest seed left in the tournament at 14 powered past Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 6-4 6-3.

It was a routine start to the match in front of a relatively subdued crowd, still filling the stadium ahead of the men's quarterfinal between Novak Djokovic and John Millman.

She was quickly down two more breaks at 4-0 before squandering three break points in the sixth game as Osaka glided into a maiden semi-final at the Slams.

It is the first time in the Open era that Japan is represented in the semi-finals of both the main draws at the same grand slam.

The Ukrainian had a small window to grab momentum but failed to cash in on her three break-point opportunities while trailing 4-1 in the second set and Osaka fought back before cruising through the final game.

"I hate matches like this", said Tsurenko. "And then after I went into the quarters, I want to keep going, so I feel like I have to be focused again and keep trying really hard", she said.

Naomi Osaka means business as she attempts to win her first grand slam title at the US Open.

To win a title or even make a final in NY, where she and her sister Mari grew up learning tennis in a Haitian household with her father's parents and eating her mother's Japanese food, would speak to every part of Osaka's multicultural experience.

Once she did, the 20-year-old Osaka found they had plenty in common.

That semi-final win a year ago, over Coco Vandeweghe, was her solitary Grand Slam semi-final victory, with her other two appearances at this stage resulting in defeats - albeit both times as underdog, to varying degrees - against Serena Williams and Sloane Stephens. "I think she can win a title now, even though grand slam".

Before Nishikori, only Shuzo Matsuoka had made the last eight in men's singles in a major at Wimbledon in 1995. I'm really happy to be in the semi-final'.

But after laboring through the heat in her previous match, Tsurenko said she was sick Wednesday, waking up with a sore throat and not breathing well.

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

It was another hot afternoon Wednesday, with temperatures in the 30s C, but feeling much hotter due to the humidity.
