Chair umpire gives John Millman OK for off-court shirt switch

Chair umpire gives John Millman OK for off-court shirt switch

Millman fought back to take a 4-3 lead before Djokovic finished him off by winning the final two points of the game.

He will now face Novak Djokovic or John Millman on Friday.

The Croatian has built on that success, reaching two more finals in the last two seasons, but Nishikori's only similar run came in NY two years ago when he defeated Andy Murray to reach the semi-finals before losing to Stan Wawrinka.

Osaka continued what has been a largely dominant run through the draw by winning in just 57 minutes, the third time in her five matches she didn't even have to play an hour.

"I gave it a crack", said the 29-year-old Millman, who has battled a litany of injuries in his career.

It is the first time that a Japanese man and woman have made the last four at any grand slam in the Open era.

"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 was) very tested", Djokovic said.

Tsurenko didn't appear bothered by the conditions, but whether it was her health or just first-time jitters, she was off from the minute she stepped onto the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

To get to Saturday's championship match, 20th seed Osaka will have to get past USA 14th seed Madison Keys who breezed past Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 6-4, 6-3.

The Blues will be hoping to hit the ground running after the global break with fixtures against Cardiff, West Ham and Liverpool on the horizon.

But Cilic was unable to hold his nerve serving to stay in the match and it was Nishikori who held his arms aloft after four hours and seven minutes. But he couldn't capitalize and Djokovic took the first set 6-3. I think she can win the title now, even though it's a grand slam.

That made it all the more surprising that the 28-year-old allowed his advantage to slip, missing a break point that would have given him a 5-1 lead and then being pegged back to 4-4.

From early on in the match Millman, who had never previously progressed past the third round at Flushing Meadows, looked flustered and out of breath. I'd play in a swimming pool if I got to play a quarter-final every week at a Grand Slam.

John Millman had the biggest upset of the U.S. Open two nights ago when he sent No. 2 Roger Federer packing.

Naomi Osaka and Kei Nishikori blazed a trail into the US Open quarter-finals yesterday morning (Singapore time), putting a Japanese man and woman in the last eight together at Flushing Meadows for the first time.

"You could imagine it was very hard for me to say goodbye before the match finishes", Nadal 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.

Djokovic taking a break in the second set. "I tried to swing a little more, play aggressive and start working better from 4-2 down", he added.

"Just like my entire body was shaking, so I'm really glad I was able to play well today", she said.

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. Novak won just two points more than Roger and he had to dig deep in his service games to emerge as a victor before the deciding set, saving 19 out of 23 break points and stealing Federer's serve six times from 13 opportunities.
