After a great drama, World No. 1 defeated the fourth seed, Alexander Zverev, in five sets, 4: 6, 6: 2, 6: 4, 4: 6, 6: 2.
Three hours and 37 minutes of fantastic tennis, a giant fight, but only one could make it to the finals, the king of tennis who will play against Daniil Medvedev for the 21st career Grand Slam, fourth in New York in his ninth final at Flushing Meadows!
Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic played an unexpectedly uncertain match against Kei Nishikori, which lasted more than three and a half hours, advancing against Kei Nishikori 3: 1 (6-7, 6-3, 6-3, 6-2) in the third round.
The match once again showed that Djokovic manages better when he plays in three won sets, instead of two, as was the case at the Olympic Games.
Djokovic rested after the Olympic Games and this will be his first match in a month.
Novak is embarking on a "mission" 21 - 21st Grand Slam title in his career, along with completing a Calendar Slam.
The first obstacle is a young Dane, with whom he trained several times.
Rune has won three challengers in a row and is in a series of 13 wins.
This season, Djokovic has won the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon this year, and just needs the US Open crown to complete the set of all four Majors.
He is seven victories away from reaching that goal in New York - his first obstacle will be the Dane Holger Rune, the 145th player in the world.
