Novak Djokovic beats Taylor Fitz to reach US Open semifinals - ESPN
NEW YORK -- Novak Djokovic reached his record 47th Grand Slam semifinal, breaking a tie with Roger Federer for the most by a man, by defeating Taylor Fritz 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 at the U.S. Open on a steamy Tuesday.
Djokovic improved to 13-0 for his career in quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows -- and to 8-0 against Fritz, an American who was seeded No. 9.
The match was played with the Arthur Ashe Stadium retractable roof partially shut, which offered shade both for spectators and the two competitors on an afternoon when the temperature topped 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 Celsius) and the humidity was above 55%.
