Djokovic Beats Kei Nishikori To Reach US Open Final

Rafael Nadal agrees with Serena Williams 'Now wins are more special'

Now they are set to face each other on Sunday for the first time in a grand slam final on the biggest stage in tennis, the US Open in NY. Del Potro, 29, is familiar with the feeling of losing out on trophies because of injuries. A lot of people in this room, including me, didn't think I would be at this level at this age.

In front of him on Sunday is a man who has beaten him 14 times in 18 contests and in all four of their slam matches.

Nadal has been forced out of tournaments due to left and right knee problems over the last decade, withdrawing before 2009 Wimbledon and the 2012 Olympics and during the 2010 Australian Open. "Serve, return, groundstrokes - he was playing aggressive and I didn't have much energy to stay with him".

Djokovic said: "I personally like him very much, not just as a player but as a person".

Six of his titles, also a record, have come at the US Open. But at some point, you have to make a decision.

The friends who have come to NY from his home town of Tandil and been so vocal in their support played an important role in keeping Del Potro believing that things would one day be better.

Unbreakable records at the US Open
Williams later broke her racket, which earned her another penalty, which led to an argument between Ramos and Williams. Williams emotionally had told him that she does not cheat and has a daughter for whom she tries to set an example.

But, yeah, I think was 2-All in the first, 15-Love, something like this in the first set, that I felt. "Yeah, I didn't have [the] energy to stay with him", Nishikori said.

"The worst moment was in 2015 when I was close to [quitting] this sport because I couldn't find a way to fix my wrist problems", he said after the match with Nadal.

The top-ranked Spaniard plays third-seeded del Potro, and No. 6 seed Djokovic meets No. 21 Kei Nishikori in Friday's other semi-final. "Two of them I had to retire".

"He (Del Potro) is a great player everywhere". He's nursed foot, back and wrist injuries, adductor and abdominal trouble. Even after Nadal got some taping on his knee, he made the third seed work hard for his points.

Nishikori has enough about him to make this a competitive affair and we should see plenty of long rallies, but if Djokovic plays to his best then there will only be one victor.

"But I don't know".

Moabi Recreational Park was a busy location with people celebrating the Labor Day holiday. Lewis and the three people still missing, had been riding in the Hallet, officials said.

"I know I'm not 100 percent, but I can play tennis in this (condition)".

Djokovic went into cruise control in the third set, winning four consecutive games from 2-2 to win the match and book his spot in the final.

Rafael NadalAfter seven years of struggles, Nadal is finally looking like a contender again at Wimbledon and is playing a lot like the man who reached his fifth final in 2011, except for this flat-faced fall. But he was always a top-five player in the eyes, I think, of everyone.

"I feel that this tournament, Juan Martin is hitting a little bit bigger off his backhand". But Del Potro, resurgent this season with his first ATP Masters 1000 title in Indian Wells and a title in Acapulco, is on the threshold of another Grand Slam triumph.

Maybe "the tennis of his life" will be enough to be crowned champion in NY again, nine years after his ground-breaking campaign.
