Novak Djokovic - Expecting tough fight from Nishikori
World No.1 Novak Djokovic was barred from partying into the night by coach Boris Becker after his superb win over rival Andy Murray.

Former champion Novak Djokovic showed nerves of steel in the final match inside Arthur Ashe Stadium against Andy Murray to book his spot in the semi-final of the US Open for the tenth straight year.

While Djokovic seemed thrilled with his win, he said that he would go back and hit the sack straight away.

"My thoughts are just directed to sleeping right now," Djokovic said.

His mood, however, suggested that he wanted to do something completely different.

"Or party. What do you say? Let's party. I think my coach right there would chase me with a little baseball bat if he saw me going to the city to party right now," the Serb further quipped.

Next Up?

The World No.1 is now set to take on Japanese Kei Nishikori who defeated Aussie Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka in a five setter to reach this stage.

"We haven’t played against each other for a while. He’s a very talented player who has been Top 10. He’s very fast all over the court and serves well for his height.

"I’m expecting a tough one."

Nishikori did beat Joker but alas Federer the great also crumbled to Cilic. Change of guard is eventually in the offing .

Nishikori is the big surprise of the Open this year, but after 2 five-setters, I think his chances of beating Joker are very small. Big question is can Fed beat Joker in the final? I love to see it, but I think you still gotta give Joker the edge due to age. But maybe he will have a bad day... That was an amazing match against Monfils last night. Monfils appeared to get tired, which he shouldn't at the pro level. They have got to be fit enough to play 5 sets without getting too tired. Glad Fed was able to hang on. His serve was not great; more aces and first serves would have made it easier for him.
