"I was behind in head-to-head with both of these guys up to recently", said Djokovic, who also leads Andy Murray, 25-11.

Many in the crowd had figured they would see a classic Djokovic-Federer quarterfinal, but the underdog Millman crashed the party.

In 2017, she was beaten by Sloane Stephens in the U.S. Open final; Venus Williams and CoCo Vandeweghe were the other semifinalists, making it the first time in 36 years that the last four women in NY represented the host country. He was the player to beat at six Masters 1000 events, World Tour Finals and three Majors, including the US Open where he had to work hard against Roger Federer, in what was the last US Open final for the Swiss. "It's incredible", said Djokovic. "I was not feeling well", she said.

In a postscript to his magical US Open run, Millman said he even expected to come under attack after losing his quarter-final to grand slam colossus Novak Djokovic.

She was quickly down two more breaks at 4-0 before squandering three break points in the sixth game as Osaka glided into a maiden semi-final at the Slams.

To get to Saturday's championship match, 20th seed Osaka will have to get past U.S. 14th seed Madison Keys who breezed past Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 6-4, 6-3.

Osaka wasn't born when compatriot Kimiko Date made the Wimbledon semi-finals in 1996 but now the 20-year-old has the opportunity to go one better by reaching a maiden Grand Slam final.

Withstanding energy-sapping weather, Djokovic ensures there's no upset as he annihilates Federer-conqueror to set up Nishikori clash.

Millman, who beat Roger Federer in the previous round, returned after a brief interval but found no joy against Djokovic's serve and the Serb broke the Australian in the penultimate game before serving out the second set.

She's the only member of that quartet who made it back to that round, using her big-strike game built on serves and forehands to overpower No. 30 Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 6-4, 6-3. Naomi Osaka won her quarterfinal in the match that preceded Nishikori's.
