Nadal powers into US Open final after blitzing Del Potro

Rafael Nadal can wrap up a 16th Grand Slam title and third at the US Open on Monday

World number 15 Madison Keys made it an all-American US Open semi-final round in the women's draw for the first time since 1981, after she defeated 418th-ranked qualifier Kaia Kanepi 6-3, 6-3 on Wednesday.

"I'm not disappointed because it's been a good run this year already". "But being back on this wonderful court and in front of this awesome crowd, and having the chance to fight for this title is unbelievable for me.

This means the world to me", said Anderson, whose career was at a crossroads in January when hip problems forced him out of the Australian Open and his ranking slumped to 80.

"I also have no idea how I have done it. just hard work. I made him move more and make it all more unpredictable".

The 31-year-old Spaniard, the 2010 and 2013 champion in NY, will be playing in his 23rd Slam final and third this year, looking to add the U.S. title to his record 10th French Open. Being in a semifinal, he said, left him "unbelievably nervous starting out" against an opponent in the same semifinal-debut circumstance.

"If he serves well and hits his forehand well, he's a player who can beat anybody".

Ever since the US Open draws were announced fans, analysts, tennis lovers and even for say Roger Federer - have been eagerly waiting for the two to face each other for the first time in NY.

Eight years on and after so many injuries, Del Potro's backhand is not yet back to where it was but he was encouraged by the way it held up against Federer. It's the fourth in the Big Apple and 23rd overall (second behind Roger Federer's 29) for Nadal, and the first for Anderson.

Nadal and Federer have incredibly never met at the US Open but, with Andy Murray and Novak Dojokovic both missing from this year's tournament, it was anticipated they would finally face one another in NY. The Spanish master then changed tactics and strung nine games together after dropping the first set to beat the 2009 champion 4-6 6-0 6-3 6-2.

After a draining epic five-setter against Thiem and no less taxing four set quarter-finals win over Roger Federer, Del Potro simply seemed to run out of gas. The way I played or am playing right now, it's not good enough to win this tournament. Ole! chants for the powerful del Potro. "I had it throughout the tournament, and I just felt that way every single match I went into".

"Tomorrow is going to be a different match than the past", he said.

This is not to mention that Nadal was in a form resplendent in the last three innings against del Potro, confirming practically his return to the top of his sport.

"Of course it is a pity, but Juan Martin deserves it more".

After the first set Del Potro's energy stalled and the Argentine lost the second set 6-0.
