Hello and welcome to Arthur Ashe Stadium for tonight’s US Open quarter-final twin bill. First up it’s fourth-seeded Karolína Plíšková and No 17 Maria Sakkari, who face off for the final women’s semi-final berth and the opportunity to meet surprise package Emma Raducanu tomorrow night. Then top-seeded Novak Djokovic will continue his pursuit of a record-setting 21st major singles title and the first calendar-year grand slam in men’s tennis in more than a half-century against the sixth seed Matteo Berrettini in a rematch of this year’s Wimbledon final.
Plíšková and Sakkari will be taking the court for their warm-up about 20 minutes from now.
Bryan will be here shortly. In the meantime here’s Tumaini Carayol’s report from today’s day-session surprise.
