Hyon Chung’s dream run continues as he defeated fellow first-time quarterfinalist T.Sandgren of US 6-4, 7-6, 6-3 thus becoming the first person from South Korea to reach semis of a grand slam.  He defeated no.4 Zverev in the round of 32 and Djokovic in a round of 16 on his way to quarters.

However, the biggest upset of the day was when the world no 1 Rafael Nadal retired from his quarterfinal match against Cilic after being 2 games behind in 5th set. Nadal asked for medical treatment for his knee after winning the third set and eventually decided to retire after the second game of the last set was played. The winner Cilic would face K. Edmund of Britain who has played some tough tennis in the tournament defeating veteran Seppi of Italy and Dimitrov of Bulgaria in four setters.

In women’s singles no 2 seed Wozniacki takes on E.Mertens of Belgium. Wozniacki defeated Suarez Navvaro of Spain 6-0, 7-6, 6-2 while Mertens defeated her opponent in straight sets 6-4,6-0. In another semi-final, world no.1 Simona Halep defeated Pliskova of Czech 6-3,6-2 while her opponent Kerber crushed her opponent M.Keys of US 6-1,6-2.

The Indian hopes are on Boppana who has his mixed doubles quarterfinal match with partner T.Babos against the pair of Spears and Cabal.
