Martina Navratilova’s opinion doesn’t matter to me’ - SASCHA ZVEREV

The match lasted more than four hours. The Spaniard fought past 12th seed Denis Shapovalov of Canada, 3-6, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (7), 0-6, 6-3, to reach his second US Open semifinal after four hours and nine minutes of battle.

Jennifer Brady needed just 69 minutes to reach her first Grand Slam semifinal on Tuesday afternoon.

Coric actually led in the second set with a break serving at 4-3.

The fifth seed survived a stern test of nerves to reach his second Grand Slam semi-final this year with a 1-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-1) 6-3 victory after nearly three-and-a-half hours.

With silence restored, Zverev hit a service victor to hold for 3-3 after the players split the first two sets.

"But she's a Grand Slam champion, as well, multiple Grand Slam champion, she's respected, but her opinion right now does not matter to me".

He will play Australia's 21st seed Alex de Minaur for a spot in the semi-finals after the Australian breezed past unseeded Canadian Vasek Pospisil 7-6 (8/6), 6-3, 6-2, in 2hr 17 min.

Shapovalov was up 4-3 in the third-set tiebreaker but dropped each of the next four points to fall behind in the match.

Before the WTA's mandated five-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, Brady had begun a career-best season with a victory over World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty en route to a quarterfinal run in Brisbane and backed it up by reaching the semifinals in Dubai. "This is what I train to do 365 days of the year", Williams said afterwards.

Current EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, a former coal lobbyist, defended it last week in a speech commemorating the agency's 50th anniversary.

Thus, Alexander will compete in the second consecutive Major semi-final, losing the previous one to Dominic Thiem at the Australian Open back in January. "I just thought he was too good in the third and in the fourth sets". Maybe she should look that I'm positive against Roger.

"I don't want to stop here", the 6-foot-6 Zverev said. Now, with Alexander Zverev's run to the men's singles semifinals, that's about to change. I think I'm very comfortable on these courts.

"Coming into the match today, honestly I was feeling like I was going to poop my trousers, but I was very nervous". He doesn't really care what the opponent does, he just cares about himself.

Seeded 28th, Brady dominated from the baseline in her first major quarterfinal.

Zverev admitted: "I just started playing a little bit more aggressive, because if I had played the way I (started), it's not the level for a quarter-final game in a grand slam. I was down 1-6, 2-4, nothing to lose".

With Djokovic out of the tournament, there will be a first-time major victor in the men's draw in NY.

The disqualification of top seed Novak Djokovic on Sunday blew the men's competition at Flushing Meadows wide open.

In between those matches at Ashe will be the all-Russian affair pitting last year's finalist Daniil Medvedev against 10th see Andrey Rublev, who is appearing in his second US Open quarterfinal.
