Kevin Anderson beats Pablo Carreño Busta to reach US Open final

  • Spaniard Busta happy to play in Nadal's shadow

Both players were bidding to reach their first Grand Slam finals and it was the Spaniard who took the early lead when he found a break in the first set.

The 31-year-old, ranked 32 in the world, is the lowest-ranked grand slam finalist since 38th-ranked Jo-Wilfried Tsonga fell at the 2008 Australian Open final. "All the things that I thought before I was missing out on, (now) I really wasn't", said Stephens, whose late father, John Stephens, was the 1988 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year for the New England Patriots, and whose mother, Sybil Smith, was Boston University's first All-American in women's swimming. And now I am in the semi-finals of the US Open, and I think it is as important as if Rafa arrives to the semi-finals. It was tough for Pablo and me.

"It was an unbelievably tough match on one of the biggest stages in tennis". I was just over the moon at the end. "I'm happy to have another shot". But Anderson has far more career match wins with 267 compared to Carreno Busta's 110. And he struck 58 winners to the Spaniard's 21. Anderson won the match in straight sets, 6-3 7-6 but dropped his serve twice on that occasion.

Carreno Busta displayed great resilience to save two break points at 4-3 down, but Anderson's persistence paid off in the final game of the set as he broke courtesy of angled backhand.

PERFORMANCE OF THE DAY: Rafa Nadal recovered from a first set blip to thump Juan Martin del Potro 4-6 6-0 6-3 6-2 and reach the final four years after his last title at Flushing Meadows. Anderson finished it off on the next point.

Nadal's response was devastating, breaking Del Potro three times in succession and conceding only one unforced error to dole out a bagel in the second set. Anderson has been claimed as one of the game's best servers now, and he leads the men's field in the most number of aces served. But while Nadal has hoovered up major trophies for the past 12
years, the tall and likeable South African with the thumping serve has won just three small titles in his career and, until this week, he had only reached one grand slam quarter-final in his career. He attacked with blood in his eye and he defended as if his life depended upon it. Del Potro, increasingly tired as the sets flew by him, could do nothing to stop Nadal's march to the final. "If you let him play from good positions with his forehand, you are dead", said Nadal, who has lost his last two meetings on hardcourts with the 28-year-old.

Both players were high on confidence especially with Anderson defeating home favorite Sam Querrey in the quarterfinals and Carreno Busta not losing a set on his way to the semifinals.
