US Open semi-final: World No.1 Novak Djokovic beats swiss star Roger Federer by saving two match points and got to win semi-finals in New York.

Federer had won two sets before Djokovic roared back to win 6-7, (7-9), 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5. Federer seemed in complete charge when he broke Djokovic at love to go up 5-3 in the final set. Federer went up 40-15 with double match point

Djokovic, the Australian Open and Wimbledon champion, has now taken his 2011 record to 63 wins against just two defeats, and stands one win from a fourth Grand Slam title.

“It was definitely the biggest win of this year, one of the biggest wins of the career, under the circumstances,” the BBC quoted Djokovic, as saying.

“I was two sets down. Roger was in control, he was playing better and then I switched gears and I managed to play much better in three sets,” he added.

Djokovic won it because he’s young enough but now experienced enough to stay the course where Federer is 30 and having obvious difficulty maintaining a high physical standard through six or seven Grand Slam matches.

The 24-year-old will play Rafael Nadal in a repeat of last year’s final after the defending champion beat World No.4 Andy Murray 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, in three hours and 24 minutes.
