Serena advances, Stephens sunk at US Open

Sloane Stephens US Open

The 28-year-old Sevastova, who avenged last year's quarterfinal loss to Stephens in NY, converted five of her eight break points and saved seven of the nine against her.

Nadal holds a 7-3 career lead over the 25-year-old but Tuesday's clash under the Arthur Ashe lights will be their first away from a clay court.

"I could have s-- the bed in the first round, and that would have been really bad", the No. 3 seed said after absorbing a 6-2, 6-3 beating that derailed a potential dream semifinal against Serena Williams. Now after dispatching Isner, he's back in the semis with either Rafael Nadal or Dominic Thiem standing between him and a final.

"What is important about this match is the level of tennis, the dramatic match", Nadal said in his news conference shortly after play ended.

"It's going to be stuck in my mind forever", Thiem said at his post-match press conference. "Forever I'm going to remember this match".

Nishikori won the rematch of the 2014 final with a 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-4 victory in a match that lasted 4 hours, 8 minutes.

This extensive coverage of the Championships will be available to Prime members in the United Kingdom and Ireland for no additional cost to their membership and represents the first time a major tennis tournament has been available exclusively on a streaming service.

The match on a sweltering Tuesday afternoon was a rematch.

Del Potro has unleashed 66 aces and spent three and a half hours fewer on court than Nadal. The two were neck-in-neck at 5-5 when Nadal carved out a match point with his forehand. Until the fifth-set tiebreaker, the first contested so far this tournament, it was truly any man's game to win.

This one was never easy: Nadal trailed by a break in the third set before taking it.

"When these things happen, normally I am not the guy that looks at the string or looks at the box or looks at the racket", said Nadal. "Me, too. I fought until the end".

"I had a shower, lay on the table and I didn't want to come back again".

Wednesday's quarter-finals will see two-time champion Novak Djokovic face Australia's John Millman, the world number 55 who shocked Roger Federer in the last 16.

"It's pretty humid and takes its toll on us players, myself, and I think Juan".

"Defending a title is very hard, very difficult."
Since mid-May, Nadal is 27-1 and only seems to be getting stronger.

Many players have been driven to distraction by the small margins involved when playing Isner and one backhand that just drifted into the tramlines cost Del Potro the opening set - the first set he has lost all tournament. It was just a tough day. It's back to the drawing board for the number 3 player and onto the next tournament be it in Chicago, Quebec City, onto the Asian Swing, the WTA Finals or others.
