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

US Open: Rafael Nadal retires from semi-final, Juan Martin del Potro progresses

Del Potro, whose own injury troubles have been well-documented, will therefore get a chance to repeat his 2009 triumph in NY.

Del Potro advanced to the finals earlier on Friday after world No. 1 Rafael Nadal retired with a knee injury.

As his opponent limped increasingly heavily between points, Del Potro ruthlessly fired in winners, his backhand proving nearly as potent as his famously magnificent forehand.

Mike Bryan won his record-setting 18th Grand Slam doubles title and his second straight with Jack Sock, beating Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo 6-3, 6-1.

"It would be special to me". A big challenge, as well, because I've been fighting with many, many problems to get to this moment.

The tweets attracted widespread attention and concern - "the Internet lost its collective mind", as Woodward wrote in his book. Several prominent figures in the book have denied quotes that Woodward attributes to them.

"The match was really, really good from my side".

"These last two weeks have been good tennis and I think I'm just worn out", he said. If I win, great. 'I can not compare between this tournaments with Davis Cup.

As effective a returner as Djokovic is, he has struggled to convert break points with regularity all year and those struggles have continued at the US Open.

The friends who have come to NY from his home town of Tandil and been so vocal in their support played an important role in keeping Del Potro believing that things would one day be better.

"I was in too much pain", he said.

Djokovic tops del Potro to win U.S. Open, 14th Slam title
Del Potro was looking at having to become the first man since Pancho Gonzales in 1949 to win the U.S. title from two sets down. And it all started with Djokovic getting erked by crowd reaction and constant singing for Del Potro. "Ole Ole Ole.

"I guess he knew it was going to probably not be enough against some players, but he was happy enough playing this way, which I admire a lot. I am focused on trying to make that happen". "It's where you want to play your best", Djokovic added. Then I think it was a little bit better. Reaching finals, winning titles, having my highest ranking ever in this moment. But he said the support of his friends from his home in Argentina - many of whom sang and cheered loudly from a suite during the match - and the expertise of his doctors pulled him through his depression. But Novak has won the Wimbledon already. "He will be the favourite to win on Sunday", he said. "I know what is going on with the knee".

"I hate to retire, but stay one more set out there playing like this will be too much for me". "I will try to enjoy one more day". He was triumphant at Wimbledon in July, his five-set victory over Nadal in the semi-finals demonstrating that his spirit and ability to instantly wipe setbacks from his mind was back, as well as his devastating shot making as he appeared to be pain free.

If he beats Del Potro to equal Sampras, only Roger Federer (20) and Nadal (17) stand above him in the all-time list.

Juan Martin del Potro and Novak Djokovic set up a US Open final clash as Rafael Nadal was left to curse the return of the knee problems that have dogged his career. I missed lot of opportunities.

He has dropped serve just five times - three of those coming in the first two rounds. He's a big-time player. He will be looking forward to reaching only the second Grand Slam final of his injury-prone career. "He's playing tennis of his life, without a doubt, in the last 15 months".
