Khachanov’s
flamboyance

Little
split
these
two
players
in
an
extremely
tight
quarterfinal,
with
31-30
aces
edged
by
Kyrgios,
but
many
of
Khachanov’s
came
at
crucial
moments
under
pressure.

Kyrgios’ flamboyance
and
shot-making
ability
was
on
show,
but
his
inability
to
convert
break
points,
along
with
58
unforced
errors,
ultimately
proved
the
difference,
taking
two
of
nine.

Ruthless Ruud

Ruthless
Ruud

Earlier,
Ruud
reached
his
maiden
US
Open
semifinal
and
fought
to
keep
his
world
No.1
hopes
alive
with
a
gritty
win
in
New
York.
The
Norwegian
showed
no
signs
of
pressure
in
dismissing
13th
seed
Matteo
Berrettini
with
a
statement
6-1,
6-4,
7-6
(7-4)
quarterfinal
victory
at
Flushing
Meadows.

Ruud
was
at
the
top
of
his
game
in
the
opening
two
sets,
taking
the
first
inside
half
an
hour,
but
Berrettini
made
a
contest
of
the
third
though
the
Norwegian
pulled
it
back
in
the
fourth.
Into
his
first
US
Open
semifinal

and
his
second
at
a
Grand
Slam
following
a
run
to
the
final
at
Roland
Garros
this
year

Ruud,
along
with
Carlos
Alcaraz
has
a
chance
of
becoming
the
new
world
No.1

Garcia supreme

Garcia
supreme

On
the
women’s
draw,
Caroline
Garcia
kept
her
terrific
form
going
with
a
stylish
6-3,
6-4
victory
against
18-year-old
Coco
Gauff
in
the
quarterfinal.

The
28-year-old
has
now
not
lost
a
set
in
her
past
six
matches,
dating
back
to
her
final
against
Petra
Kvitova
at
the
Western
&
Southern
Open,
and
now
finds
herself
in
the
first
Grand
Slam
semifinal
of
her
career.

Jabeur too makes it

Jabeur
too
makes
it

Tunisian
Ons
Jabeur
also
advanced
through
to
her
first
US
Open
semifinal
after
defeating
the
in-form
Ajla
Tomljanovic
6-4,
7-6
(7-4).

Jabeur,
the
world
No.5,
became
the
first
woman
from
Africa
to
make
the
last
four
at
Flushing
Meadows
after
a
powerful
display
in
the
quarterfinals
accounted
for
an
opponent
who
has
belatedly
started
to
pose
problems
at
Grand
Slams.
