A small schedule of singles games will take place at the 2012 U.S. Open on Thursday, Sept. 6, Day 11 of the sporting event. However, there are some key matches that many will want to keep an eye on.
The number eight seed, Janko Tipsarevic, will be taking on the number four, David Ferrer. It is the veteran Tipsarevic's very first semi-final in a Grand Slam. With a 48-18 record this season, it is no surprise he made it this far. Amazingly, he has also won 12 straight sets going into Day 11's matchup.
Meanwhile, Ferrer has only lost in one set during the whole tournament. Although the two have not played against each another in four years, Ferrer leads in matches won 2-1 and possesses a 56-11 overall record for the year.
With the loss of Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic has become the new favorite to win the championship. The defending champion has not lost a set the whole tournament. His opponent, Juan del Porto, has not gone through the tourney with as much ease as Djokovic, but has been performing big during his serves. Along with his killer groundstrokes, he brought the now retiring Andy Roddick's career to an end.
Although it was del Potro that defeated Djokovic for the bronze medal at the Olympics, he will still have his work cut out for him at the U.S. Open to repeat the feat.
After downpours brought the play on Tuesday to a screeching halt, some of the schedules have gotten switched around, but assuming the weather is acceptable, all should be back on track for Thursday.
