  • Djokovic Beats Kei Nishikori To Reach US Open Final

Del Potro sent him home in the first round and Djokovic left the court in tears, the beginning of his injury and motivation struggles that lasted from the 2016 French Open until the 2018 season.

Del Potro won his only Slam at the tournament in 2009, memorably defeating Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer back-to-back to achieve the goal.

Del Potro has never beaten Djokovic at a grand slam tournament before, his best effort being an epic five-set loss to his rival in the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2013.

Del Potro won the first semi-final earlier in the day after defending champion Rafa Nadal retired with a knee injury in the second set.

Del Potro, whose own injury troubles have been well-documented, will therefore get a chance to repeat his 2009 triumph in NY.

Juan Martin del Potro brought is own cheering section to the US Open, but in truth, the "gentle giant" from Argentina has the backing of the entire tennis world.

As his opponent limped increasingly heavily between points, Del Potro ruthlessly fired in winners, his backhand proving nearly as potent as his famously magnificent forehand.

World number one Rafael Nadal, who had to pull out of the semi-final of the ongoing US Open owing to a knee injury, said that although he hates to pull out, staying on the court for another set seemed too much for him. Nadal bested the Argentine in their meeting previous year.

The 31-year-old Serb, clearly enjoying the fruits of his labour, delivered a comprehensive performance against Nishikori as he served impeccably, was solid with his returns and dominated from the back of the court.

Nishikori was taken to five sets by Marin Cilic - the man who beat him in the 2014 final - in Wednesday's quarter-final but he came through to reach the third Grand Slam semi-final of his career.

He was also made to work hard for his Round of 16 win over Karen Khachanov that came in four sets on a similarly energy-sapping evening in the city.

Del Potro took the opening set after a brutal opening set went all the way to a breaker at Flushing Meadows, the Argentine taking it 7-3 with a series of stunning groundstrokes.

"Of course, it's not the best way to win a match", said del Potro, who hugged Nadal when it was over.

"The worst moment was in 2015 when I was close to quitting because I couldn't find a way to fix my wrist problems", he said. So I don't know what can happen in a couple of days or in a couple of weeks. I know what I have. I lost four matches. Six months off you are back.' I know what I have to do to be better as soon as possible.
