Roger Federer Beats John Isner to Reach US. Open Semifinal
Friday, 09/11/2015

Isner, the 11th seed and last American standing, didn’t have his service broken until the final game as Roger Federer craftily won the first two sets in tiebreakers, including 7-0 in the opener.
MURRAY’S MIGHT: After coming from behind in the final two sets and saving a match point against Grigor Dimitrov in the hard-court warmup at Cincinnati last month, Andy Murray noted that a win like that could pay dividends in the future – and not just in his own confidence he can rally from big deficits. He was too good, I would have loved to see my chances against any other player.
When making a case that a player could trouble Federer on his current form, you need to search for weapons that can hurt him consistently over five sets. “When I went to bed, [I] clearly thought Rafa was going to bring it home and that was it. Then I heard the news when I woke up”. “I was very happy for them”, Federer said, of a spectator who popped the question to his girlfriend and then put a ring on her finger.
Bemelmans next plays fifth-seeded French Open champion Stan Wawrinka who beat South Korean teenager Chung Hyeon 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (8/6).
Second-seeded Simona Halep looks strong: The World No. 2 has looked unshaken at the U.S. Open so far where others, including Serena Williams, have faltered with the loss of sets here and there. “I’m a much better player”.
After moving on when Jiri Vesely retired because of a neck injury after dropping the first two sets, Isner, seeded 13th, was asked about the possibility of dealing with Federer’s newfangled return Monday.
Be sure to watch the incredible match as Roger Federer will face off against Richard Gasquet in the quarterfinals of the US Open 2015 on October 10, 7pm at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. It wasn’t easy to face him in the round of 16. “The pace on his second serve [an average of 115 mph] is unreal”.
