Smiling Sevastova prepared for bombardment in maiden slam semi

Karolina Pliskova

The most recent sports headlines delivered to your inbox every morning. "I need to play my best match of the tournament if I want to keep having chances to stay in the tournament".

It was the first time Sevastova reached the last four, where she will face either 23-time major champion Serena Williams or eighth-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova for a place in the final.

Speaking after he had won that fourth set to reach the last four Del Potro spoke about the heat and what he did during the break.

Sep 2, 2018; New York, NY, USA; Sloane Stephens of the United States waves to the crowd after her match against Elise Mertens of Belgium (not pictured) in the fourth round on day seven of the US Open at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

But Tsurenko said she was sick Wednesday, waking up with a sore throat and not breathing well. Stephens went just 1 of 9 on her second serves, canceling out an outstanding 81 percent first serve percentage. "But on the same time, not make too many mistakes", said the 24-year-old Thiem.

As of this writing, a portion of the river near Lake Havasu remains closed for a third day as officials still search for Heitzig. Officials deemed it too risky to allow divers in the water after dark but planned to resume their search Sunday morning.

"I'm very happy for my level, for what all has been through to get in this position now", del Potro said. "I wish I could have played better, but it just wasn't the day".

But Stephens said afterwards that she had been feeling under the weather in the build-up to the match.

Her frustration became apparent, whether she was gesturing to her coach, staring in annoyance at deep balls that bounced off the baseline, or just screaming out in general.

Speaking after the match, del Potro joked that during the 10-minute interval after the third set he showered, re-strapped his ankle, lay on the physio's table... and then never wanted to return to the court.

"I think it was very physical today", Sevastova, who lost to Stephens during a US Open tune-up in Montreal last month, said during her on-court interview.

Thiem chuckled when he was asked about Nadal's apology but added that now that he was out of the tournament, he would love to see Nadal defend his title.

She insisted she still had plenty to be proud of.

But Sevastova broke again to go up 3-1.

But Cilic suddenly rose to the occasion and deployed his ballistic forehand to get back on serve at 5-5 before securing the opener after an error-filled tiebreak by both players.

Cilic appeared to be coasting after taking the first set and opening a 4-2 lead in the second.

Thiem came out swinging, and connecting; he hit five aces, 13 winners, and handed Nadal a rare bagel in the first set.
