Casper Ruud used his mighty forehand to reach his second Grand Slam final this year, beating Russia’s Karen Khachanov 7-6(5), 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 and his hopes of reach the top of the world to keep alive rankings. The first Norwegian man to reach the final at Flushing Meadows won an extraordinary 55-shot rally to close the first set tiebreak en route to victory at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz finished Frances Tiafoe’s dream run with a 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-1, 6-7(5), 6-3 victory to reach his first major final. Despite playing five sets into the early hours of the morning in his previous two matches, the 19-year-old showed no signs of fatigue on Friday and raced across the field to win the hard-fought battle.
