US Open: Djokovic and Monfils Through to Semi-Final

Djokovic into Semi Finals after Tsonga Retires after Second Set. Murray vs Nishikori at 18:30 GMT.

It was another short match for World No. 1 Novak Djokovic after Jo Wilifried Tsongo retired due to a knee problem. Djokovic was brilliant in the first two sets winning 6-3 and 6-2, shutting down critics that have said he is off his form. He has had the easiest route to the Semi Finals of any other player in the tournament, as Tsonga was the third player to retire from a match with the Serb at the US Open. 

In the other Quarter-Final from last night it was a battle of France as Monfils downed Pouille 6-4, 6-3, 6-3. Monfils looks great but it is unlikely that he will be in the Finals, as he will do battle with Djokovic in the Semis. 

Nishikori vs Murray

Andy Murray is in total control of his own destiny at the US Open. No opponent has even come close to beating him so far and the Scotsman hopes to extend his already impressive win record against Japanese player Kei Nishikori. Just last month Murray crushed Nishikori at the Rio Olympics and has a total of seven match wins out of eight against Nishikori. The one thing that Murray needs to be wary about is the fact that Nishikori likes surfaces like the US Open and plays very well. 

The winner of the match will face either Stan Wawrinka or Juan Martin Del Potro in the other Semi-Final.


Nothing is going to stop Murray on this day and punters should expect him to win in three sets.
