US Open's ultimate underdog couldn't pull of another miracle

US Open's ultimate underdog couldn't pull of another miracle

"I needed that rest", said Djokovic, who finally gained the decisive break in the penultimate game of the final set then served it out at love.

"I mean, it's a little bit odd because it's in just since couple of tournaments and we still are not used to it", Ostapenko said.

He had two game points for a 5-2 lead but a double fault and a backhand wide opened the door for Cilic, who stormed through, shouting "Got it!" when he secured the break to narrow the gap to 4-3. We were all sweating.

Two nights after Millman's tenacity and quality ball-striking caused Federer to wilt in the NY humidity, Djokovic battled to a 6-3 6-4 6-4 victory.

John Millman's inspired run in the US Open is over, with the Australian going down in straight sets to Novak Djokovic in their quarter-final clash.

Eight of those statements have been about the heat, three have been about unruly chair umpires acting out of turn, and one was about an Australian player's excessive perspiration.

"I think it just gives a rhythm simple and clear for everybody: for the player, for the TV, for the fans", Wawrinka said. "Sorry", Osaka said after her quarterfinal victory. "He's been around for quite a few years, he's known around the tour as a guy with hard working ethics and you can see that". So yeah, I kind of enjoyed it.

"The chair determined that the surface was risky enough to invoke the "Equipment Out of Adjustment" provision in the ITF Duties and Procedures for Officials and allowed Millman to go off court to change clothes/shoes", read the statement issued by the USTA.

Keys tops Suarez Navarro en route to U.S. Open semis
Osaka celebrated her win calmly and coolly unlike the floods of tears which greeted her last-16 victory over Aryna Sabalenka . Osaka swept aside 36th-ranked Tsurenko in just 57 minutes as the Ukrainian's challenge fizzled out in a deluge of mistakes.

Roger Federer hangs over a fan during his fourth-round loss. The roof was closed on Thursday afternoon, before the women's semifinals later that evening, in anticipation of thunderstorms.

"Not easy conditions to play in, but it's the same for both players". "This has been definitely the toughest US Open in the last, you know, 10 years that I have played in, in terms of conditions". Players are talking about.

"It's an open-ended question: What can be done now?" he said.

He said that the four doors in the 23,771-seat main arena's corners are being propped open during matches, but the effect has been negligible.

The 6-3 6-4 6-4 result was by no means humiliating for Millman, who sent down several brilliant winners in the match. It 'was just one of those nights where I guess I felt I couldn't get air; there was no circulation at all.'To some, the comments by Federer, 37, may sound like sour grapes.

Djokovic broke early to take a 3-1 leave in the third set but a lapse in concentration allowed Millman to draw level. It feels like a sauna.

"What happens in locker room", Djokovic replied with a smile, "stays in locker room".
