The offender Svitolina sensationally reached the semi-finals of the US Open

Sloane Stephens US Open

"An epic match", del Potro called it.

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

After Nadal roared back to take a 2-1 lead, the fourth set went to a tiebreak. Stephens was on the ropes early in the second set with a deficit of 2-0, but started to make a comeback.

Thiem laughed off Nadal's consolation efforts.

US Open 2018 - When is the final? Even the 11-time French Open champ himself has said he believes Thiem will win titles at Roland Garros and, if Tuesday night was any indication, that's only the beginning.

The victor of this match faces 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro in the semifinals.

Serena Williams wins in straight sets against Karolína Plíšková in the US Open quarterfinals. A combination of Stephens' ineffectual play and Sevastova's cunning was enough to put the Latvian into the semifinals of a Grand Slam for the first time.

"Considering a year ago after this tournament I s*** the bed for like 10 tournaments in a row, I definitely don't have any points to defend", she said.

"Thiem is more of a specialist on clay, and so am I, so it [playing him on hard court] is not something favorable for me", the US Open defending champion told Spanish press on Sunday following his four-set win over Nikoloz Basilashvili.

And while Isner's serve was significantly down on pace, del Potro was constantly applying pressure to the strongest part of the American's game.

More news: What you missed Wednesday, with Le'Veon Bell still holding out

In his on-court interview, Nadal revealed that he had apologised to Thiem during their embrace after the match and added that he had everything that is required of a champion and his time will soon come. "We're both exhausted in the end". Williams punched her ticket to the semifinal with a win over No. 8 seed Karolína Pliskova at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Tuesday.

"She's a great player".

But Tsurenko said she was sick Wednesday, waking up with a sore throat and not breathing well.

Gauff received a wild card this year into the qualifiers for the main draw at Flushing Meadows, but lost 6-4, 6-1 to Heather Watson of England.

She returned almost two years later and finally broke through on her third straight appearance in the US Open quarterfinals. "It's been a few, couple, rough semis for me", Williams said.

Stephens fought back in the second as she twice broke back having already been broken. Her 18 winners against Stephens' 13 were ultimately the difference in the match, as both players finished with 28 unforced errors.

"I have been playing well the last matches".

The policy is a rule on the women's tour but not the men's.

Pretty soon, Sloane Stephens's run at a US Open repeat was lost, too. The defeats of Stephens and Pliskova completed the exodus of top 10 seeds.
