Carreno Busta faced an unprecedented draw early, facing four qualifiers through the first four rounds. With neither of them able to find any more breakthroughs on the return, Carreno Busta ultimately served out the first set 6-4 after 33 minutes of play.

And after it cost Lucie Safarova the point, she called out her friend on social media for a lack of sportsmanship after her team lost.

"But even after the end of the first set, I realized, while I hadn't made too many inroads on his serve games, I played a few points that those were the kind of points that I was looking to play".

Serena Williams might be on a leave of absence from the tennis tour, but she is definitely paying attention to the U.S. Open.

The Spaniard came into the match without having lost a set in the tournament.

And she closed by writing: "What a joy it will be to watch this- hopefully first of many finals".

The Spaniard earned the only break in the first set in the seventh game and took the first set in 34 minutes, 6-4. One thing sort of led to another.

With another inspiring march picking up steam with a fourth round win over sixth seed Dominic Thiem and a quarter-final upset of Federer, Nadal derailed the Del Potro train turning his dream into a nightmare. Anderson had to see off the 12th seed from Spain in four tight sets to secure a berth in the grand finale. He didn't drop a set through his first five matches.

"To be seeded here in US Open, I was seeded number 12". Anderson closed the match out on his serve 4-6, 7-4, 6-3, 6-4.
