Casper Ruud and Carlos Alcaraz are set to battle it out for their first Grand Slam title this weekend after knocking out Karen Khachanov and Frances Tiafoe respectively.
The 2021 Champion Daniil Medvedev and the second seed, 22-time Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal, were both knocked out of a turbulent US Open paving the way for another new champion crowned King of the US courts.
Wimbledon finalist Nick Kyrgios were previously the hot favourite to win the tournament after beating Medvedev, however Khachanov was able to overcome the Australian in Wednesday’s quarter-final bout.
World number one Novak Djokovic was unable to participate in New York due to his vaccination status and was therefore unable to attempt to match Nadal’s record of 22 Grand Slam titles.
Cameron Norrie, the British number one, was knocked out in his fourth round match against Andrey Rublev and ended Britain’s involvement in the Grand Slam.
The world number nine had high hopes of reaching his first tournament Slam after a phenomanal year on the ATP tour but it was not to be after being beaten in straight sets by the Russian.

Who will compete in the US Open men’s final?
Despite Khachanov knocking Kyrgios out of the competition, Ruud proved too much of a challenge for the 26-year-old and was beaten in a 7-6 (7-5) 6-2 5-7 6-2 victory for Ruud to reach his second Grand Slam final of the year.
The Norwegian was previously beaten in the French Open final against Nadal and will be desperate to get his redemption as he faces Alcaraz in New York.
A win for Ruud would take him above Nadal to top spot in the rankings this weekend.
Meanwhile, Alcaraz is contesting his first major final as he looks to become the youngest top-ranked men’s player in ATP rankings history.
The 19-year-old already became the youngest Grand Slam men’s semi-finalist since Nadal 17 years ago when he faced Frances Tiafoe yesterday, while he also set a new record for the latest finish at the US Open following his 2:50am win over Jannik Sinner in the five-hour quarter-final tie.
Carlos Alcaraz is currently the favourite to win his first Grand Slam title today after beating Casper Ruud in both of their previous meetings in straight sets.
• Casper Ruud - 7/4
• Carlos Alcaraz - 4/9
