Carreno Busta grabs 1st set in US Open semifinal

Awe-inspiring Nadal crushes Del Potro to reach final

The 31-year-old Spaniard is 22-3 in Grand Slam semi-finals, winning the last 14 in which he has appeared.

World number 32 Anderson, the first South African to reach a grand slam final in over 30 years, will meet top seed Rafa Nadal in Sunday's title-decider.

Stephens, who missed 11 months with a left foot injury before returning at Wimbledon, matched her best Grand Slam showing by outlasting Latvian 16th seed Anastasija Sevastova 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7/4).

"More important, have given myself a shot at being in the finals and, you know, I will be playing for a Grand Slam trophy".

As he digested congratulatory texts from compatriots such as Wayne Ferreira, the last South African man to make the semi-final of a major in Australia in 2003, and golf superstar Ernie Els, a four-time major victor, the 31-year-old Anderson has bigger targets.

It's so hard to see Carreno Busta competing with the on-fire serve of Anderson.

The 6ft 8in Anderson needed some inspiration and he found it in the second set with a backhand cross-court victor that brought him level at one set all.

It's sourced from Ford , because, says Les Edgar , the company "needed an engine with built-in reliability and long life". It's mounted over a carbon-fibre reinforced aluminium and steel chassis, which is not only light but extremely rigid.

With Hollywood star Robert Redford and Microsoft founder Bill Gates looking on, the big South African carved out the first break of the second set for 3-1 but handed it back straightaway in the next game.

In the fourth round, Anderson defeated the spirited Italian Paolo Lorenzi in four sets.

"At the University of IL we had really good teams and it's a great atmosphere, you have a lot of people around you", he said. I feel like it's been working well for me, so I'm not going to do anything much different.

"It's actually a good position that I'm in that I'm not able to attend", Anderson said with a smile.

"Just being on the road a lot, I know there are so many great South African sportsmen", Anderson said.

"It will be an interesting match, and I'm very excited to go out there and compete in the semifinals".

"It was very hard at the end of previous year", he said.

Those production delays reportedly mean the redesigned iPhone could see "extended supply shortfalls" when it launches. The report comes even as another Bloomberg report says Apple and LG are in talks for OLED display supply for 2019.

"One of the things I have probably spent the most time on is just keeping my body healthy". It is a first-ever Grand Slam semifinal for both men in the second match on Arthur Ashe.

Tiley, a former South Africa Davis Cup captain and now the tournament director at the Australian Open, said Anderson deserves every moment of his success.

"There will be adjustments we have to make‚ but for me I will try and do the same things I have been doing and focus on playing my best tennis".

Carreno Busta was asked if he thinks that Anderson has the game to beat either del Potro or Nadal.

"I have played both guys a few times", said Anderson.
