Marin Cilic on the way to a US Open fourth-round victory over David Goffin on Monday

Beleaguered US Open organisers have come under further pressure over the lack of air circulation inside Arthur Ashe Stadium after Novak Djokovic, a two-times champion here, described the largest tennis arena in the world as a "sauna".

It's incredible to think Millman could find himself such a target after stretching Djokovic to nearly three hours in a 6-3 6-4 6-4 defeat that was much closer - and stressful for the Serbian superstar - than the straight-sets scoreline suggests.

Amazon Prime Video will bring customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland live and exclusive coverage of the US Open, which takes place from 27th August to 9th September 2018 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre in NY, including multiple streams from several courts, catch-up highlights and full-match replays.

The unseeded Australian, who had sensationally dumped out Roger Federer in the previous round, was no match for the Serb, who always had the upper hand as he ran out a 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 victor to make his 11th straight United States open semi-final. But I have played him recently in quarters of Wimbledon.

Djokovic took the first set in a hard hour.

Even in the final set Nishikori looked comfortable with a 4-1 lead before Cilic levelled, only for the Croat to lose the final two games.

Seventh-seeded Croat Cilic, a three-times Grand Slam finalist who reached the showpiece game in Melbourne this year, has had a fairly easy path to the quarters apart from a five-set tussle in the third round with Australian Alex de Minaur.

I know I have to be at my best in order to compete with him from the baseline.

"It's great to see, " said Nishikori, who is into his third major semifinal - all in NY - but is still in search of his first Grand Slam trophy.

Osaka broke in the second and sixth games of the opening set which was wrapped up in just 24 minutes.

Djokovic had nothing but kind words to say about Millman during his post-match interview.

That was at Wimbledon in 1995, and both Kimiko Date and Shuzo Matsuoka lost in that round. Djokovic was only too happy to have a break. "Changing a lot of T-shirts, shorts", said Djokovic. After the first, he double-faulted, and he wound up getting broken there.
