'I cried when John Millman beat Roger Federer' - Sister

But to play him at Arthur Ashe stadium, such an awesome experience.

Novak Djokovic reached the US Open semi-finals after continuing his flawless record in the last eight with victory over Roger Federer's conqueror John Millman.

He started to regain his form in the spring, was back up to the No. 21 seed for his return to Flushing Meadows, and awaits either No. 6 Novak Djokovic or unseeded John Millman on Friday.

"So I feel, you know, big chance for her", Nishikori said.

"It's good to have, you know, home support outside of Japan", he said.

Slightly over a month after winning Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic is in another semifinal. It marks Djokovic's 11th straight Open semifinal berth. Like Millman did to the 37-year-Federer, Djokovic finally wore down the 29-year-old Aussie. "I was surprised. But it wasn't Roger's day".

Djokovic was 1/13 on break points when Millman double-faulted on a 14th opportunity at 4-4, volleying the ball away with his foot in annoyance at giving his opponent what he had been unable to take for himself.

But it was Djokovic who benefited from the break.

The men played for nearly three hours through the humidity, which was complimented by 26C heat at 11pm. "Changing a lot of t-shirts, shorts and just trying to hang in there and find a way to win the match".

Millman, whose forehand can be shaky, couldn't sustain it like he did against Federer, when he posted his first-ever victory against a top-10 player and extended Federer's 10-year Flushing drought.

"First quarter-finals, he won against Roger".

#Lodestar: Who penned explosive New York Times opinion piece?
The president commented on the op-ed during an appearance with Sheriffs and law enforcement officials at the White House. The New York Times said that there was a tweet that was referring to this person as a he, but that that was a mistake.

Speaking courtside after the game, Serbian champion Djokovic revealed his outlook changed when Millman stopped play to change out of his sweaty clothes.

There were other issues for him, too, including in the third set when, ahead by a break, he was called by the chair umpire for allowing the 25-second serve clock, making its Grand Slam debut at this tournament, to run out on back-to-back points.

Millman left the court for six minutes as tournament officials gave Millman a bathroom break.

US Open tournament director David Brewer said Wednesday night that the Grand Slam event's hard courts were purposely slowed down "a touch" in response to players noting in recent years that the surface seemed to be speeding up.

One came in the last game as she served for the victory, but she erased it with a forehand victor, part of a 22-10 edge in that category.

After groin surgery in February 2017, Millman went to work for a mortgage brokerage firm, unsure if he still had a tennis career to bank on.

This night was cooler, as the temperature dipped into the 70s, but the humidity was above 80 percent, so with Millman drenched, he sought permission for a wardrobe change at 2-all in the second set.

That came during an unusual stoppage after four games of the second set when Millman was instructed to go off court to change his whole kit because he was sweating so much it was making the surface unsafe.

The two combatants received a standing ovation after one spectacular rally in the opening game of the second set.

Nishikori stunned then-world number one Djokovic in the semi-finals in 2014 to become the first man from an Asian country to reach the championship match of a major.
