Kei Nishikori, Naomi Osaka make history at US Open

Nishikori sees off Cilic in five to reach first Slam semi since 2016

He got the break but trading breaks when you are one down didn't add up and Nishikori won his third straight US Open quarterfinal, and 9th meeting with Cilic in 15 tries.

Millman, who had performed a major turnaround by knocking out Swiss tennis maestro Roger Federer from the tournament, suffered a crushing 3-6, 4-6, 4-6 defeat at the hands of his Serbian opponent to storm into the semi-finals.

He is into his third major semifinal - all in NY - but is still in search of his initially Slam trophy.

In the women's singles event, Japan's Naomi Osaka sealed her spot in the last four of the tournament as she rolled over Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine in straight sets within an hour.

Keys, a 23-year-old American who is seeded No. 14, overwhelmed Suarez Navarro with her powerful serve and groundstrokes, building a 22-10 edge in winners.

"I've gotten a lot better managing my emotions once it gets to this part and knowing that everything is going to be probably more amped up", she said. "But my heart says that I am in peace like this".

Less than 24 hours on from Rafael Nadal's unforgettable victory over Dominic Thiem, Arthur Ashe Stadium played host to a gruelling five-setter between the two players who contested the 2014 men's final.

A forehand error from Djokovic let Millman level at 3-3 but the sixth seed carved out three break points in the next game, converting the third before serving out the match and sealing the win with a backhand volley in two hours, 48 minutes.

Francesca Schiavone, the 2010 French Open victor, held a news conference to announce her retirement as Kei Nishikori and Marin Cilic battled it out in another lengthy contest on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

After four games of the second set, the Australian approached the umpire to request an outfit change due to excessive sweating, which he said was making the court slippery and risky.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons confirmed Tuesday that Rowley and Sturgess were also exposed to Novichok. The Skripals were found collapsed on a bench in the cathedral city of Salisbury , about 140 kilometres southwest of London .

If Djokovic wins in NY, he'll join Pete Sampras on 14 grand slam triumphs, a total only bettered by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Carried by this momentum, Djokovic broke at the start of the fourth set, saving a break point in game six to move 4-2 up and breaking Roger's serve again with a return victor in game seven for a 5-2.

A wonderful US Open for Japan continued as Kei Nishikori edged out Marin Cilic in another epic quarter-final at Flushing Meadows to emulate Naomi Osaka and reach the semi-finals in NY.

"From that point on, I felt the match was quite even".

She has made it to the final four at three of the past five Grand Slam tournaments but is still seeking her first major championship.

The hot and humid conditions, which left Federer out of breath, took their toll on Djokovic who looked sluggish early in the second set.

This night was cooler, as the temperature dipped into the 70s, but the humidity was above 80 percent, so with Millman drenched, he sought permission for a wardrobe change at 2-all in the second set.

Widely considered the best returner in the game, Djokovic kept accumulating chances - and then failing to cash them in.

"Just like my entire body was shaking, so I'm really glad I was able to play well today", she said.

But Djokovic broke back in the match's next-to-last game, then served out the victory at love. Millman said, "He makes you work hard for every point and it's relentless".
