He'll likely need that sort of consistency, plus another night of big serving, to upset Nadal.

American 20th seed Vandeweghe claimed a 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 win over the Czech Republic's Pliskova, whose brief eight-week stay as world number one ends with Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza taking over.

Del Potro would not be so profligate, hammering a magnificent backhand on his first chance to clinch the set, drawing a huge roar from the Argentine and his supporters high in the stands.

"But for sure I will try to make winners with my forehands and don't run too much, because my legs are exhausted". And not simply because Federer owns a record 19 Grand Slam men's singles titles, five at the U.S. Open; Nadal ranks second overall with 15, two in NY. Questions over Rafa's early form in the event appear to have been answered, dropping a mere 12 games across his last two victories, against Alexandr Dolgopolov and Andrey Rublev - Del Potro's last two matches have been across nine sets, and has spent 188 more minutes on court in the last two rounds than Rafa. After three more or less expected wins to get it underway, he had to shake off illness and a two-set deficit in the fourth round to get over sixth seed Dominic Thiem.

"When he's playing well it's hard to stop him", Nadal said.

"I play against qualifiers in first, second, third and fourth round". I really had to dig deep there.

"He came up with the goods when he needed to and I helped him a little bit sometimes too maybe", Federer said.

'So probably he's unstoppable from that positions, no?

Given the circumstances and all the injury problems he has gone through in the intervening years, it would be a significantly more remarkable achievement if he could repeat the feat.

Eventually, Del Potro's flat, fearsome forehand became less unsafe, as if he suddenly remembered just how tired he was. Nadal is again healthy and capable of excellence, after wrist and knee injuries had dulled his effectiveness in 2015 and 2016 - the first seasons since 2004 in which he not only failed to win a grand slam trophy but didn't make a final. You must be ready to take your chance. "So I try to play tennis and enjoy the tennis moment, and it doesn't matter how bad I feel before the match".

Now, he finds himself back at the top of the sport with a semi-final appearance at Flushing Meadows having beaten Roger Federer to book it on Wednesday.

"At the end of previous year I was told I probably needed surgery on my hip", he said in his post-match interview with ESPN, per the ATP World Tour's official site.

"I'm dealing with just trying to understand what happened and just to overcome this in the next few hours, days, weeks, whatever it is".

"I don't know if the team hug is appropriate, but it certainly felt like the right thing to do", Anderson said to ESPN on court thereafter.

"Against Rafa, it's going to be the same". Ergo, no FEDAL, once again at NY, but Nadal fans are rest assured that the Spaniard will retain his World No. title with the end of the final grand slam event of the year.
