US Open glance: Federer, Nadal can set up 1st US Open clash

US Open glance: Federer, Nadal can set up 1st US Open clash

Rafael Nadal won the semi-final 4-6, 6-0, 6-3, 6-2, that ended approximately two and a half hours.

After his marvelous performance in the semi-finals, the star player said, "It's a very emotional year for me".

"The way I played or am playing right now, it's not good enough in my opinion to win this tournament".

Looking ahead to his semi-final against Nadal, the Argentine 28th seed said: "Against Rafa, hopefully I can repeat the result".

"So I tried to move him around more and be more unpredictable".

Anderson becomes South Africa's first Grand Slam singles finalist since Kevin Curren, who reached the 1985 Wimbledon final three months after becoming a naturalised American citizen. Being in a semifinal, he said, left him "unbelievably nervous starting out" against an opponent in the same semifinal-debut circumstance.

Unable to prosper fully from his 2009 US Open breakthrough, he was just 20 when long-term struggles with wrist problems began, requiring four surgeries and pushing him to the brink of retirement.

Although Anderson has some big-time weapons, particularly on his serve, the world No. 1 is playing, as he likes to say, with calm, clear thought and with the peace of mind that he is not dealing with any injuries.

Federer entered the quarterfinals undefeated in Grand Slam play this season.

The Argentine, victor of the US Open 2009, has made illusion for a set, finding the power in the service and the accuracy in the forehand that had allowed it to spill over Federer in four sets 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (10/8), 6-4.

It seemed to be all over in the third set when he broke Federer to go 3-2 up, and with the momentum and a sold-out Arthur Ashe crowd in his corner, he sealed the deal with another forehand victor.

However, the 28-year-old has spent 13 hours and 20 minutes on court - one hour and 40 minutes more than Nadal - and admitted: "Physically I'm not in the flawless conditions, but when you play semi-finals on the Grand Slam, everything can happen".

"If I play at my best level, I believe I'm going to have my chances against everybody". - NO, ascertained del Potro.

Nadal looked as good as ever over the last three sets against del Potro, further confirming his return to the height of his powers.

The Spaniard, watched by Tiger Woods in his player's box, then raced into a 3-0 lead in the third before Del Potro stopped the rot, having lost nine games in succession. He needed five sets to win each of his first two matches - and Wednesday, he succumbed to the del Potro's familiar formula of massive forehands and booming serves.

"I've been exhausted after the Thiem match and the Roger match", the 2009 US Open champion said. I hit my forehand as hard as I could and I played a great match.
