  • Rafael Nadal Garbine Muguruza express shock at Barcelona terror attack

The 31-year-old failed to replicate his good performance in the ongoing U.S. Open warm-up event so far and slumped to a 2-6, 5-7 defeat at the hands of Kyrgios in a thrilling last-four clash that lasted one hour and 20 minutes.

"Tonight I'm playing Rafa and I win".

"I have just been going through a load of s***, sorry for cussing, but a load of stuff that's distracted me from just trying to play some tennis, and hopefully I'm just trying to get on the right track again". "Everybody is destroyed in Spain, including, of course, me", Nadal said Friday. I used to play against him at Futures and Challengers. It's those matches for me.

Though double faulting on his first match point against Nadal, the world no.23 composed himself to dispatch Nadal at the second time of asking in a convincing display that will see him play David Ferrer in the semi-finals.

Pliskova completed a match that was suspended overnight because of rain, beating qualifier Camila Giorgi in three sets.

Earlier, Kyrgios defeated Croatia's Ivo Karlovic 4-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 and Nadal downed compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas 7-6 (7-1), 6-2.

Nadal netted a forehand to surrender a break and a 3-2 lead to Kyrgios in the second set.




Dimitrov needed to beat Yuichi Sugita from Japan 6-2 6-1 to reach the semis.

Nadal, who won his 10th French Open title in June, on Monday was assured of moving into the top ranking for the first time since July 2014 when Roger Federer withdrew from Cincinnati with a back injury.

Nick Kyrgios admits he has endured a "rollercoaster of scenes" over the past two months after storming into the Western & Open semi-finals with victory over incoming world No.1 Rafael Nadal.

On Saturday, she'll face No. 2 Simona Halep, who beat Johanna Konta 6-4, 7-6 (1). I could move well.

"I believe I did the things well enough during the whole year to be ready to compete at the highest level of NY, so I am looking forward to it" he said. He had some mistakes and I was able to be back in the match.

"To be No. 1 after all the things I've been going through the last couple years is something unbelievable", Nadal said.

Bopanna and his Croatian partner Ivan Dodig lost 6-1, 5-7, [10-7] to second seeds Lukasz Kubot of Poland and Marcelo Melo.
