Tennis world player Novak Djokovic of Serbia was stunned by Kei Nishkori of Japan who beat him in the U.S open semi-finals on Saturday.
Kei now ranks as the first man from Asia to reach the U.S open grand slam and Djokovic had this to say
“He had a big break and prepared himself for this tournament and played some great tennis. I congratulate him for the effort, he was the better player today”
Djokovic further spoke about the hot weather condition but never tagged it as the reason for his defeat, he says
“Conditions were hard but it’s the same for both of us, he just played better. I wasn’t managing to go through the ball in the court”
However, Kei will be meeting either grand slam champion Roger Federer or Croatia’s Marin Cilic in Monday’s championship match.
Kei’s victory over Djokovic will go down as one of the sport’s greatest shocks.
