"There was always part of me that believed I could come back relatively quickly to the level of tennis that I once was playing", sixth seed Djokovic told reporters after he completed a 6-3 6-4 6-2 semi-final demolition of Japan's Kei Nishikori.

The Wimbledon champion has appeared more impressive with each passing round and will be up against a confident Millman who is unseeded but flying high after stunning Swiss second seed Federer in the previous round.

Amazon Prime Video will bring customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland live and exclusive coverage of the US Open, which takes place from 27th August to 9th September 2018 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre in NY, including multiple streams from several courts, catch-up highlights and full-match replays.

American player Nicole Gibbs told CNN past year that she'd first started receiving online abuse while playing college tennis.

"I'm fine to have a little rest", Djokovic said cheekily on Wednesday night (Thursday NZ time) as the crowd at New York's Arthur Ashe Stadium roared in amusement. "I was not feeling well", she said.

Novak Djokovic will play in his 11th consecutive U.S. Open semifinal after outlasting John Millman late Wednesday in NY.

He said: "He's got one of the best two-handed backhands in the game and very quick".

The pair, both shy characters, have recently become friends, and Nishikori said: "I hope people were watching us today".

Japan's Nishikori, who missed last year's US Open after a season-ending wrist injury, joined compatriot Naomi Osaka in reaching the semis - the first time that a Japanese man and woman have reached the last four in the same grand slam.

"I was struggling. He was struggling".


The No. 6 seed won the 2:49 match 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. Millman held serve from 0-40 down in the opening game of the second set but at 4-4 he double-faulted on break point.

Carried by this momentum, Djokovic broke at the start of the fourth set, saving a break point in game six to move 4-2 up and breaking Roger's serve again with a return victor in game seven for a 5-2.

Keys has made it this far in a major for the fourth time in her career.

The Serb said that the trying conditions had made the match hard for both players.

For Osaka, who is 20, this is her first trip past the fourth round at a major. He was able to come through on only four of his 20 break points.

Beforehand recognized tennis participant was named the favorites for the US Open event.

Djokovic, the victor in 2011 and 2015, faces Kei Nishikori in Friday's semi-finals, his 11th successive appearance in the last-four.

Naomi Osaka, of Japan, reacts after defeating Lesia Tsurenko, of Ukraine, during the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018, in NY.

The No. 20 seed moved from Japan to NY at age 3, and her deepest major run is coming at the same tournament she first visited as a child.

Nishikori also needed to labour through five sets to beat Marin Cilic and given the effects of fatigue backing Djokovic to win this one in straight sets at [1.99] looks a decent price.
