Keys overpowers Navarro, reaches U.S. Open semis

Out of the shadows Naomi Osaka hits a return to Aryna Sabalenka

It has not been quite the season Keys was hoping for, though she did also reach the semifinals at Roland Garros, but with the crowd behind her she will consider herself as having a real chance of going all the way in the Big Apple.

"I always thought if I were to win a grand slam, the first one I'd want to win is the US Open, because I have grown up here and then my grandparents can come and watch".

Until Osaka's run this year, the best NY performance by a Japanese woman was 2004 when Shinobu Asagoe reached the quarterfinals.

However Nishikori fought back and took the next two sets before Cilic forced a decider. "I was not feeling well", she said. The Illinoian is most comfortable on her forehand, but she can also do damage with her backhand which makes her incredibly hard to attack.

Before Nishikori, only Shuzo Matsuoka had made the last eight in men's singles in a major at Wimbledon in 1995.

"Well, in the mornings I don't play matches, I walk around and hear the lovely honking", Osaka said.

Naomi Osaka made the semifinals with a win over Lesia Tsurenko.

She plays a semifinal against No. 19 seed Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia, who is appearing in the last four of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time. "My entire body was shaking, but I was really glad I was able to play well today".

In the United States was buried with honors John McCain
Doug Ducey congratulated Kyl on the appointment via Twitter . "Senator Kyl is prepared to hit the ground running". "Now Sen. Kyl benefits from a long Washington experience, having served a total of 26 years in Congress, 18 of them alongside McCain.

She also has far more experience under her belt, having been to three semi-finals in the past five Slams and to the final in NY in 2017.

Cilic looked to be in control of the match at a set and a break up but back came Nishikori to win the second set, and then the third in a tiebreaker after the Croatian wobbled on serve.

Osaka celebrated her win calmly and cooly unlike the floods of tears which greeted her last-16 victory over Aryna Sabalenka.

Breaks were at a premium in the first set, both players holding serve until Suarez Navarro cracked at a decisive moment in the 10th game.

"Unfortunately during this tournament I had many issues with my health, and today was not my day obviously".

In 2017, Williams played the Australian Open and won the title without dropping a set - and perhaps that might have been impressive enough, if not for the fact that at the time she was also two months pregnant with her now one-year-old daughter, Olympia. "I would say it's a similar style". Aliaksandra Sasnovich, who bested Kvitova at Wimbledon, fared even worse and had to endure a humbling 0-6 0-6 loss. She recovered to win in three sets, with her opponent accusing her of acting after the match.

This will be the fourth meeting between Keys and Osaka, and their second at the US Open.

Kei Nishikori, of Japan, celebrates after defeating Marin Cilic, of Croatia, during the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018, in NY.
