US Open 2010 Tennis: Mens Semifinals Results and Highlights – Interesting development at the US Open 2010 Tennis Mens Semifinals today. Number 3 seed Novak Djokovic defeated Number 2 seed and five-time US Open champion Roger Federer to advance to the US Open 201 Finals against number 1 seed Rafael Nadal.
It was a long time coming for Djokovic to take a revenge against Federer for his 2007 finals and 2008 and 2009 semifinals lost to him. It was a very exciting match which reached the fifth set. Djokovic served at 4-5, 15-40 during the fifth set in a match that ended in a 5-7, 6-1, 5-7, 6-2, 7-5 win.
This is the first time in the last six years that Federer will not be appearing in the US Open Finals. The finals will feature Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal.
Rafael Nadal’s semifinal game against Russia’s Mikhail Youzhny was easier, he won the match with straight set wins, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4. With his win, Nadal becomes just the sixth man in the Open Era to reach the finals of all four Grand Slams, and, at 24, the second-youngest.
Nadal and Youzhny had become familiar foes in the tennis court. The two had met 11 times previously and Youzhny manage to win four times against Nadal. With Youzhny’s performance in the US Open 2010 he will surely be in the Top 10 of the world tennis ranking for the first time since 2008.
