"Definitely felt like a special match".

"It took a lot of work, I mean several hours a day over nearly two months", said Anderson. The South African won his opening three rounds in straight sets against JC Aragone, Ernests Gulbis and Borna Coric respectively.

And Kvitova's ninth double-fault got Williams to match point in the tiebreaker.

He was supposed to get together with some friends and alumni from the University of Illinois for a viewing party to watch the Fighting Illini take on Western Kentucky in Champaign, Illinois. "He's the best at it, and you can take a few lessons out of his book".

She will face unseeded Sloane Stephens in an all-American semifinal on Thursday. Instead, the South African hung tough and emerged a 7-6 6-7 6-3 7-6 victor to make his maiden Slam semifinal.

"If you are seeded, normally you don't play against another seed until the third round. Kevin has been playing great and so we will keep all our routines the same". She returned to the tour at the French Open in May, losing in the second round there and at Wimbledon.

The Argentine closed out the first set with a lightning quick forehand.

Neither woman played with a ton of subtlety, mainly trading stinging groundstrokes from the baseline on exchanges that grew in intensity as the 2-hour, 34-minute encounter went along.

Williams, who revealed in 2011 she had been diagnosed with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease, is the oldest women's semifinalist in NY in the Open era, which dates to 1968.

A three-time ATP Tour victor, it has been a long road to the US Open final - Anderson's career disrupted by injuries in recent years. He is one of the best ever. One of those I spend the most time on is keeping my body healthy.

She had an operation in January, and while forced to stay away from her sport, she found a new appreciation for it.

"I couldn't walk. I couldn't do all the things that I wanted to do".

"Here I am just nine months after thinking I might have to undergo a year's worth of recovery for surgery". "I feel like I'm going to have another opportunity to go one step further", said the Florida-based Johannesburg native. "Physically I was able to get a lot stronger, and mentally I was able to grow a lot as an individual". "In essence, love what you're doing and love being out there".

At the age of 31, Kevin Anderson reached his first grand slam final at the U.S. Open on Friday thanks to a 4-6 7-6 6-3 6-4 victory over Spain's Pablo Carrena Busta. He hit 14 unforced errors including a backhand that sailed long to hand the composed Carreno Busta a rare break to go up 4-3 in the first set. It paid off in the fifth game, to break Carreno Busta for a 3-2 lead.

If you were to look at pre-tournament form as a guide, then Carreno Busta doesn't even rate a mention with early exits in Montreal and Cincinnati.

Carreno Busta had not dropped a set at the tournament, helped by playing four qualifiers, and he was a set to the good on Friday, breaking in the seventh game.
