Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro denied tennis buffs in New York the mouth watering semi-final match between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Instead the big serving towering player would play the role as he beat the Swiss ace 7-5 3-6 7-6(8) 6-4 in the quarter final, evoking memories of his 2009 victory in the final of the U S Open, when he also beat Federer.

Del Potro’s victory on Wednesday night also denied Federer the chance of clinching a record 20th grand slam.

Federer had predicted that he would need to overcome the Argentine’s serve, forehand and fighting spirit to advance to the semi-finals.

On Wednesday, he was dead right.Del Potro hit huge forehands, big serves and stayed focused when Federer seemed to be back in control in a one-sided second set.

“I think I played my best match of the tournament, I did everything well,” said the 24th seeded Argentine. “I served so good, I hit my forehand as hard as I could and I think we played a great match and I think I deserved to win.”
