US Open: men’s semi-finals order of play, betting odds and TV details

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are hoping to reach the Flushing Meadows final

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic could set up a fifth career US Open final meeting, the BBC reports, if they win their semi-final matches in New York tonight. 

Defending champion Nadal, the top seed, takes on Argentine star Juan Martin del Potro in the first semi-final at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, starting at 9pm. Afterwards Djokovic faces Japan’s Kei Nishikori.

Nadal admits his clash against Del Potro will be “very tough”. He said: “At Wimbledon he’s a great player, he’s a great player everywhere. But the challenge of playing him on hard courts... is even higher for me personally.

“I know that I will have to play at my highest level to keep having chances of success. I am focused on trying to make that happen.”
