Nishikori, Osaka book trips to US Open semis

Osaka, who was born in Japan but moved to the United States at age 3, was followed on Arthur Ashe Stadium by Kei Nishikori facing Marin Cilic in a men's quarterfinal.

Her battle against Osaka promises to be an enticing affair.

Her compatriot Nishikori had rather a more hard time of it in his matchup against Maric Cilic, taking five sets to oust the Croat, 2-6 6-4 7-6 4-6 6-4.

Japan's Kei Nishikori advances to the semifinals of the US Open. "It was great tennis today". 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.

"She was returning in pressure situation every time because I don't have a big first service", the Spaniard said. "I was freaking out inside". "I think this was really important part of the game".

Osaka, who next faces either Madison Keys or Carla Suarez Navarro, is the first Japanese woman to reach the last four at a slam since Kimiko Date at Wimbledon 22 years ago. Yesterday's victory was her first ever Grand Slam quarter-final, and it will be interesting to see if she can overcome any nerves - obviously an unquantifiable variable, in any case. So I'm really pleased with where my game is at at the moment.

To get to Saturday's championship match, the 20th seed will have to get past either USA 14th seed Madison Keys or Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro.

In the other men's quarterfinal Friday, giant killer John Millman, fresh from his shock victory over five-time champion Roger Federer, takes on Novac Djokovic with the 55th-seeded Australian looking to add another upset to a storybook tournament so far.

Together, Osaka and Nishikori were the first Japanese woman and man to make the quarterfinals of the same Grand Slam since Date and Shuzo Matsuoka at Wimbledon in 1995. Osaka put it best after her quarterfinal win: "Sometimes I go insane and then I start hitting everything".

Prior to this meeting, though, it is the first semi-final, between Serena Williams and Anastasia Sevastova, starting at midnight.

Osaka, who is just 20 years old, is having a terrific 2018 season.

Cilic looked to be in control of the match at a set and a break up but back came Nishikori to win the second set, and then the third in a tiebreaker after the Croatian wobbled on serve.

Osaka won 59 points to just 28 for the unseeded Tsurenko, who knocked off No. 2 seed Caroline Wozniacki in the second round.

That can't happen at this U.S. Open, but Williams is closing in on her first Open championship since 2014.

In her third-round match, she was even quicker, dominating Aliaksandra Sasnovich, 6-0, 6-0, in 50 minutes. In the spring, that attention intensified when she beat three former world No. 1 players in Maria Sharapova, Karolina Pliskova and Simona Halep en route to her title in Indian Wells.

It was another hot afternoon Wednesday, with temperatures in the 30s C, but feeling much hotter due to the humidity.

She pushed some balls a few feet past the baseline, often failing to make Osaka do anything special to win a point and finishing with 31 unforced errors.
