QF: Rafael NADAL def Mardy FISH 3-6 6-1 6-4 6-2

First SF at US OPEN for Nadal. Good play at patches from Fish, but just not good enough overall.

Much better performabce from Rafa today. Fish was on fire during the 1st set, and converted the only break point he had all match - that was enough.

I am now guaranteed a player I like in the final!

Never in doubt, Nadal has now reached SF of all slams.

this was probably the worst i ve seen someone approach the net and volley, also how do u expect tb Nadal with under 50 % 1st serves

easy shiet for the No 1

Rafa, you gave us a scare for a minute there

Anyway, First US Open semifinal! All four GS semis in one year is a mighty achievement. Now rest up and do your best against Murray champ

14.

First set was weak for Nadal, especially the backhand. He had a bit of trouble returning the second serves (a lot of the first serves were aces). Good serving by Fish but he had a disaster with his forehand and his volleys in the next sets.

A stronger showing from Rafa tonight against Fish, congrats on your first USO SF!

Nadal/Murray will be one to look forward too.

If the fish hadn't flopped so much during those volleys, he wouldn't have been caught in the net.
