Novak Djokovic defeats John Millman to reach 11th US Open semifinal

  • Novak Djokovic:'Overcoming Roger Federer was one of my ultimate challenges'

But he did move on, and now will face Kei Nishikori in the semifinals. "But like I said on court, I would back myself playing during the daytime also".

Several players have said during the past two weeks that the courts are playing differently this year.

An eighth final is within reach and to achieve that, the 31-year-old expects Nishikori to make him sweat - literally. If they rose high, he sped through the court.

Last year, Djokovic missed the tournament due to injury.

Millman dragged Djokovic into long, searching rallies and four-time US Open champion John McEnroe said the Australian's level of play was "similar" to the standard at which he played in his memorable fourth-round win.

Normally, players are only allowed to head off the court between sets to change what they're wearing.

But Millman asked Djokovic if he'd be OK with a delay after the fourth game.

"I was, alongside many other people, anticipating the match against Federer", Djokovic said.

Play resumed after about a six-minute delay.

Djokovic, for whom this was an 11th consecutive quarter-final victory, has called on US Open organisers to find a solution.

Osaka will face home favorite Madison Keys, who defeated Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 6-4 6-3 on Wednesday. Millman saved five break points, even survived two straight double-faults. "I'd play in a swimming pool if I got to play a quarter-final every week at a grand slam".

She'll face No. 14 Madison Keys of the USA on Thursday night.

Earlier, Nishikori helped make Japanese history after turning the tables on Marin Cilic, winning a rematch of the 2014 final 6-2 4-6 7-6 (7/5) 4-6 6-4 to make the last four at Flushing Meadows for the third time.

The No. 21 seed gave Japan a men's and women's semifinalist at the same Grand Slam tournament for the first time in the professional era.

"She has won a Masters".

While Millman changed his clothes - for the first time because he did it later in the match too - Djokovic took off his shirt, sat back in his chair and just chilled.

Withstanding energy-sapping weather, Djokovic ensures there's no upset as he annihilates Federer-conqueror to set up Nishikori clash.

"Naomi's doing well, because she has won a Masters (Indian Wells in March)".

The Serb said that the trying conditions had made the match hard for both players.

Keys, who is 23, thinks she is more equipped than ever to deal with important moments on important stages. He nearly fell over, spun around uncontrollably and even slipped on the sweat of his opponent before winning 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 against this year's ultimate underdog John Millman. "He played an awesome tournament".

Meanwhile, the women's draw at the 2018 US Open belongs to the lower seeds.
