US Open: Rafael Nadal retires from semi-final, Juan Martin del Potro progresses
10 September, 2018, 18:57
It is the second time this year Nadal has been unable to finish a Grand Slam match having also retired during his Australian Open quarter-final against Marin Cilic after damaging a hip muscle.
Del Potro will now face Djokovic, the 2011 and 2015 victor, who reached his eighth final at the tournament and 23rd of his Grand Slam career with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 stroll past Japan'sKei Nishikori.
Del Potro beat Nadal in the last four at Flushing Meadows nine years ago on his way to the title, but had suffered misery in recent contests with the Spaniard, losing three successive slam meetings starting with a defeat at this stage of the 2017 US Open. For him will be huge if he's able to win again a Grand Slam.
"I don't know what can happen in a couple of days or a couple of weeks".
Meanwhile, Djokovic needed just two hours and 22 minutes to dismiss Nishikori, seeded 21st, as he increased his head-to-head record over him to 15-2. That shows the quality that he has, especially in the big matches. He's a big-match player. Djokovic regained the physical strength and confidence necessary to play at tennis's top level and won Wimbledon last month, ousting Kevin Anderson in the final.
That included nearly five hours to defeat Dominic Thiem in an epic quarter-final which stretched into the early hours of Wednesday morning.
That effort took its toll with the Spaniard twice needing to have his right knee bandaged before calling it a day after the conclusion of the second set.
"Of course it's not the best way to win a match. Serve, return, groundstrokes - he was playing aggressive and I didn't have much energy to stay with him". "I think the key to the match was the first set".

Next up is a mouth-watering clash against Argentine third seed Juan Martin del Potro and should Djokovic bag a third NY crown, he would join 14-times Grand Slam victor Pete Sampras in third on the all-time list, trailing only Roger Federer (20) and Rafael Nadal (17).
