The other semi will feature No.6 seed Sam Querrey, a finalist a year ago in the tournament's debut on Long Island, against Canadian Brayden Schnur.

Johnson, who is ranked 34th, served for the match at 5-3 in the third set, but Schnur got the break. "I was a little disappointed that I went with my backhand slice when I was hitting my backhand well and I like that pattern, and I strayed away from my game that point which was a little disappointing because I knew that would probably be my only look at a break that match".

Schnur got the only mini-break of the tiebreaker to grab a 3-2 lead, and he served out the match.

Thompson took on Eubanks on Grandstand and after the American qualifier edged out the opening set, the seventh-seeded Aussie rolled through the second set before navigating his way past the American 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.

Isner served 27 aces to Tomic's 13, the American dropping just nine points on serve all match.

However, there is a possibility that he could be involved with McLaren in the future. The Spanish star will be returning to the Indy 500 with McLaren this year.

There was nothing quick about the second semifinal, which lasted 2 hours, 31 minutes and went well past the previous record of 71 aces, set earlier this year in a match between Nick Kyrgios and Ryan Harrison.

On Wednesday, Tsonga fired 12 aces to none for Fabbiano. Each player had one double fault. Fifth-seeded Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation and Marton Fucsovics of Hungary both won opening-round matches.

In second-round action, 10th-seeded Denis Shapovalov of Canada and wild-card entrant Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland posted straight-set wins. France's Gael Monfils topped Italy's Andreas Seppi 4-6, 6-1, 6-3. In the victory, Isner won 85 percent of his first serve points and 84 percent of his second serve points. Paolo Lorenzi of Italy got by Ryan Harrison of the USA 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the other second-round match.

Countryman and third seed Marco Cecchinato saw off Christian Garin 7-6 (7-4) 6-4, while Roberto Carballes Baena and Guido Pella were also victorious in the last 16.
