18 % Dimitrov – 18 of 97

Medvedev [5] continues his super American Summer reaching fourth consecutive final! He easily broke in the opening game of the semifinal and controlled it to the end, albeit needed a good forehand to save a set point at *5:6 forcing Dimitrov’s [78] backhand error before clinching the 7/5 tie-break (Medvedev has won 12 SP-down sets, 4 of them at this year’s US Open). I’d say that the Bulgarian played his best tennis for the first two hours, but still it was not enough against the mega solid Russian, who hit just one forehand winner, quite accidental – squash shot from difficult position to pass the opponent touching the side-line.

Serve and volley: Medvedev 0, Dimitrov 2/2
