The Russian, is now one match away from capturing his first major title at Flushing Meadows. It was the first Grand Slam semi-final for 21-year-old Auger-Aliassime, who reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals earlier this year and has been hailed among the sport's brightest young stars.
 
In the other Men's Singles semi-finals, World Number one Novak Djokovic is facing fourth seeded Olympic gold medalist Alexander Zverev. In Women's Singles, rising British sensation Emma Raducanu will meet Canada's Leylah Fernandez in an all-teenager title clash tomorrow. The 18-year-old Raducanu made history by becoming the first player to come through qualifying to reach a women's singles Grand Slam final in the professional era after beating 17th seed Maria Sakkari of Greece 6-1, 6-4 in the semi-finals yesterday.
 
Raducanu, who is ranked 150th in the world also became the youngest Grand Slam finalist in 17 years. A 17-year-old Maria Sharapova had won the Wimbledon title in 2004. The 19-year old Leylah Fernandez defeated Aryna Sabalenka 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 in the semi-finals. American Rajeev Ram and his British partner Joe Salisbury clinched the Men's Doubles title after defeating British Brazilian pair of Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 last night. The fourth seed pair were previously victorious at the 2020 Australian Open, and also reached the final in Melbourne earlier this year.

In Women's Doubles, the American duo of Coco Gauff and Caty McNally will face Zhang Shuai of China and her Australian partner Sam Stosur of Australia in the final tomorrow. The pair of Gauff and McNally advanced to their first Grand Slam Women's doubles title match when one of their opponents Luisa Stefani of Brazil suffered an injury during the first-set tiebreak in the last four. She and her Canadian partner Gabriela Dabrowski were leading the tiebreaker 2-1 when the semi-final was halted.
