Rafael Nadal cruised through the US Open round of 16 on his quest to reach a second consecutive final. Serena Williams survived a strong challenge, keeping alive her hopes of winning the last Grand Slam of the season.
After a women's final distracted by the role of the umpire, the men's final was all about tennis. Juan Martin del Potro had his chances but Novak Djokovic was putting pressure on him from the start of the match.
Rafa Nadal has played almost 16 hours of tennis, but must pass another grueling test against Juan Martin del Potro if he wants to defend his US Open crown. Either Novak Djokovic or Kei Nishikori awaits in the final.
