  • US Open 2018 results: Juan Martin del Potro advances to finals after Rafael Nadal retires

Djokovic tied Ivan Lendl and Pete Sampras for the most US Open finals appearances in the Open era.

The audio is Serena's emotional on-court interview after her semi-final win over Anastasija Sevastova, when Williams called her run to a second Grand Slam final of the year "incredible".

However, after an injury to his right knee forced him to retire from his semi-final against Juan Martin Del Potro on Friday night, his knees are again the subject of many conversations.

Everyone who follows tennis is familiar with the dramatic story of del Potro's career.

Novak Djokovic, of Serbia, hits a forehand to John Millman, of Australia, during the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament September 5, 2018, in NY.

But del Potro might have an ace up his sleeve - a group of 14 mates who have come to NY from his home town of Tandil, Argentina.

Juan Martin del Potro advanced to the U.S. Open final when Rafael Nadal retired after the second set with a right knee injury.

When he swept to the 2009 title in NY, he was just 20 years old and expected to establish himself as a permanent rival to Djokovic, Federer and Nadal.

"Serve. Return. Groundstrokes. He was playing aggressive".

NEW YORK - When Rafael Nadal finally finished a almost five-hour climb into the U.S. Open semifinals, he thought backward as much as ahead. "I'm sad for him". Negative thing is two of them have been in quarterfinals and semifinals of a Grand Slam, close to fight for titles.

"When you win or when you lose like this", Nadal said, "you come back home with the feeling that you did all the things that you can do". It's inspiring, actually. I don't think a lot of people really know how bad it was. But the Spaniard - who played the two longest matches of the tournament going into his semi-final - is not advocating three-set slam matches, even in the early rounds, a proposition gathering some fringe support.

Del Potro was leading 7-6 (3), 6-2 after two hours of play Friday when Nadal shook his head and said he had to stop.

In front of him on Sunday is a man who has beaten him 14 times in 18 contests and in all four of their slam matches.

Nadal would figure to have a tougher time in his fourth meeting with del Potro in the last of five Grand Slam tournaments.

But six months later he was off the tour after undergoing surgery on his right wrist and, just when he was finally back to his best, he began to feel pain in his left wrist.

"Because he plays so fast, he makes me more alert from the first point". He said the discomfort surfaced in the first set, with him serving at 2-2, 15-0, and he told his coaches and supporters in his box about it. "I know what is going on with the knee".

On a blockbuster day, Arthur Ashe Stadium will be treated to a couple of epic matches between four outstanding players who have shone through at Flushing Meadows.
