Former Illini Anderson advances to US Open final

Spaniard Busta happy to play in Nadal's shadow

Spaniard Busta happy to play in Nadal's shadow

'I think I need to learn about the match today, because I can learn a lot of things. He bounced out American Sam Querrey in a four-set quarterfinal that ended at 1:51 a.m. on Wednesday and was Anderson's second-ever Grand Slam quarterfinal, following an appearance at the 2015 U.S. Open, where Wawrinka ran him out 6-4, 6-4, 6-0.

"It's tough coming from South Africa‚ where we are so far from the scene‚ so it makes me feel good that I can fly the flag and show them that of you work hard you can get here". "You learn from the mistakes, but don't let them get too much emotional attention".

Anderson has also been in good form so far in NY.

The victor will face either 83rd-ranked American Sloane Stephens, who missed 11 months with a left foot injury before returning at Wimbledon, or Latvian 16th seed Anastasija Sevastova. Venus Williams and Coco Vandeweghe have also reached the last four stages. "It's great to see this resurgence, and I hope it can continue".

The 12th-seeded Carreno Busta was also in his first major semifinal and hadn't dropped a set in reaching it. "I was told that I probably needed to have surgery on my hip".

Serena Williams might be on a leave of absence from the tennis tour, but she is definitely paying attention to the U.S. Open.

The Argentine closed out the first set with a lightning quick forehand.

Neither woman played with a ton of subtlety, mainly trading stinging groundstrokes from the baseline on exchanges that grew in intensity as the 2-hour, 34-minute encounter went along.

"He's obviously very confident", Anderson said.

New Nissan Leaf adds range, competition to EV market
This SUV and subsequent EV siblings are expected to use the same 40kWh batteries as the new Leaf to offer a range of about 379km. General Motors Co's Bolt, released past year , runs for about 283 miles (455 km) and has a price tag of about $37,000.

Williams, who revealed in 2011 she had been diagnosed with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease, is the oldest women's semifinalist in NY in the Open era, which dates to 1968.

Tennis South Africa (TSA) has admitted it could have done more to support Kevin Anderson.

The top-seeded Nadal hasn't lost a Grand Slam semifinal since that defeat, winning 14 straight. After five matches here‚ I'm a little exhausted but my body is holding up and I take a lot of confidence out of that.

"I couldn't walk. I couldn't do all the things that I wanted to do". One of those I spend the most time on is keeping my body healthy.

"I've only been on the job since the end of a year ago and since then we've really embarked on a building phase within Tennis South Africa".

"It was just kind of, like, eye-opening", Stephens added. "This is what I love doing".

The No. 12 seed from Spain leads No. 29 seed Diego Schwartzman of Argentina 6-4 in a men's quarterfinal match.

Starting the fourth set serving, it was a bright start for Carreno Busta as he looked to have regained his composure and found the momentum.
