Osaka, 22, will play 28th-seeded American Jennifer Brady on Thursday for a place in the final.

However, despite her overall success since, the Japanese former world number one said her record against Rogers was a motivating factor. "I think she did, too", Brady said.

"And those memories are stuck in my head so I consider this a little bit of revenge", she added.

On Instagram, Osaka's fans have praised her for her advocacy during the US Open. Osaka elevated her first serve percentage and kept the pressure on her opponent to keep up.

In contrast, Rogers managed only 66 percent and 33 percent respectively.

Osaka claimed a positive attitude was behind her performance today in which she hit 24 winners and made just eight unforced errors.

Soon, Osaka closed the set 6-3. "So I'm very proud of her".

Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, was jogging through a Georgia neighborhood when he was chased down and fatally shot by father and son Travis and Gregory McMichael on February 23, 2020. "I just tried to pretend it was a first-round match", Brady said.

Brady cruised into her first grand slam semi-final with a comfortable straight-sets win over Yulia Putintseva.

The 23-year-old German prevailed 1-6, 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (7/1), 6-3 in 3hr 25min.

He began playing more aggressively after finding himself a set down, and 4-2 behind in the second set.

"I don't want to stop here", the 6-foot-6 Zverev said.

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

Naomi Osaka has reflected on Trayvon Martin's death after wearing a mask with his name on it for her US Open match against Anett Kontaveit, revealing she didn't wear a hoodie for years because she was afraid of looking "suspicious".

"I know that all the young guys are hungry for it. It's going to be interesting", said Zverev, who will play either 12th-seeded Canadian Denis Shapovalov or Spain's Pablo Carrena Busta in the last four.

But Zverev got more aggressive as things went on, including essentially hitting two first serves instead of a softer, slower second following a fault, and that helped lift him to his second consecutive major semifinal, after getting that far at this year's Australian Open.

I really feel that since the start that we start working together, it was about 12 weeks ago, that we have been working really well.

On that occasion, he fell to the fifth-seed Dominic Thiem in the semi, denying him an opportunity to take on Novak Djokovic in the final.
