US Open: Kevin Anderson beats Pablo Carreno Busta to reach final

Soon-to-be world No. 1 Rafael Nadal wore down Juan Martin del Potro to move into the US Open final on Friday, setting up a meeting with Kevin Anderson in the championship. It will be the first Grand Slam final for Anderson, who has been plagued by hip, leg and elbow injuries this year and retired in the fourth round of the French Open because of a thigh problem.

"You need to win matches". "I just tried to play tennis and enjoy the tennis moment".

"I didn't even think about it, as I lost that match, that it's not going to happen", Federer said when asked if he was thinking about a potential matchup with Nadal.

Both semi-finalists benefited from a depleted bottom half of the draw, which opened up when injured Scottish world No.2 Andy Murray withdrew from the tournament prior to his first match and sixth-ranked German Alexander Zverev suffered an upset in the second round.

"Physically I'm not in the ideal conditions, but when you play semi-finals on the Grand Slam, everything can happen", he said. And that makes the difference, no?

"I really need to be dominant and control proceedings as much as possible, because if you let him do it, it's very hard".

"He only had to cover 60 per cent of the court most of the time".

"So was a big advantage for him".

"He arrived much more times running to his backhand, that then when he arrives running to his backhand is completely different than when he is waiting the ball there". I'm a good bro, too. It's been a very emotional year. The way I played or am playing right now, it's not good enough to win this tournament.

"He's a lefty guy, so he has chance to find easily my backhand".

Federer said the turning point in the match came when he wasted four set points in the third as he was looking to go 2-1 up in the match.

"To be honest, I'm angry to lose a chance like this, but maybe tomorrow, after tomorrow, I will be calm and see how big the tournament was for me", the Argentine admitted.

Few were better than his clay court run with two Spain titles, Monte Carlo and the capper at Roland Garros.

Winning the US Open would be the icing on the cake of an incredible season for Rafael Nadal. "I had flu during the week". I'm just over the moon. "That was the part, that he did so much better tonight, and that's why he deserves to win". "I was never really safe and I knew that there would always be one or two service games where I would be in danger".

The 24th seeded Argentine tennis ace stunned the second seeded Roger Federer 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (10-8), 6-4 to rewrite the 2009 US Open final.

Even though he co-opted a practice normally reserved for the victor of a Grand Slam final, Anderson had made a most unlikely run to reach this U.S. Open final.

"Physically I'm not in the flawless conditions, but when you play semi-finals of a grand slam, everything can happen, so you must be ready for the chance".
