Nadal expects ‘tough’ US Open semi-final against MurrayNew York, Sep 10: Defending US Open champion Rafael Nadal admits that World No. 4 Andy Murray will pose a significant threat to his title when the two clash in Saturday's semi-finals.

Nadal beat American 21st seed Andy Roddick 6-2, 6-1, 6-3, to reach the last four, while Murray thwarted 28th seed John Isner 7-5, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-2).

"He's a fantastic player on all surfaces and it will be a very tough match for me," the Age quoted Nadal, as saying.

Meanwhile, Murray, who is vying to become the first British man since 1936 to win a grand slam title, is delighted to be part of the top four which has shared the Grand Slam and Masters titles between them this year.

"It's good for tennis. I think everyone has played great tennis in the slams this year. At the French it happened, and it nearly happened also at Wimbledon. Roger lost in the quarters," he said.

"Rafa got injured at the Aussie Open. It's been very close to happening in almost all four of them, so it's been great consistency. Glad to be part of that," he added.

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will face five-time champion Roger Federer in the other semi-final. (ANI)
