Top seed Rafael Nadal had little trouble Wednesday afternoon in Arthur Ashe Stadium, rolling past 19-year-old Andrey Rublev, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. It is Nadal's first trip to the semis since he won the title in New York in 2013.

Only the swashbuckling Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro can 'big boy' Rafa.

DelPo has torn up the script from 2009.

Let's go Del Po.. Let's go Anderson.
People who runs around backhand to hit forehand should not win slams. :)

yup.. same thing.. I have never been a fan of people who only hit from one side. I was not watching much tennis in Graf's era, but the few times I saw her play, I found her boring slicing those backhands. I liked Seles a lot..
You send it to the right? bammmmmmm.
You send it to the left? bammmmmmmmmm.
That's tennis for me.

I see why DelPo fired a warning shot Nadal's way after ousting Rojay.

He has to jump of Rafa now or else it's done and dusted.

Rafa was so close to having 18 GS now, overtaking Rojay. Oh, well..
