    He does look a little bit defeated now Nishikori. He gave everything in that second set.

  2. Post update

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 3-1 Nishikori*

    The pain of this situation is clear on the face of Nishikori now. He looks a beaten man. Djokovic is just strutting around smashing serves.

    Djokovic waves a clenched fist in celebration and skips on his toes, proving to his opponent that he'd be happy to go the distance if he had to.

  3. Djokovic breaks

    *Djokovic 6-3 6-4 2-1 Nishikori

    He's almost there!

    Kei Nishikori is running out of gas. He makes another error.

    Djokovic calmly wanders to his chair and takes a seat with his chest puffed out. This has been good. Very good.

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 1-1 Nishikori*

    Big danger for Nishikori now. This could be terminal. He nets and covers his face in his towel.

    Two break points Djokovic.

    Ah. Nishikori knows he's not going to get many chances like this. He sinks into a crouched position after netting a return.

    Djokovic holds.

  6. Post update

    *Djokovic 6-3 6-4 0-1 Nishikori

    The crowd needs a shot or a point from Nishikori to latch on to. This all looks to be going one way and as a result things have got a little subdued.

    Nishikori is still looking busy, bobbing around at the back of the court.

    Maybe Djokovic hasn't quite fully reengaged. 30-30.

  7. Post update

    *Djokovic 6-3 6-4 0-1 Nishikori

    Quick start to the third from Nishikori. Djokovic doesn't look too interested in it to be honest.

    Here we go again. Good luck, Kei. You've got work to do.

  9. Post update

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 0-0 Nishikori

    Novak Djokovic has nipped off court. Nishikori is up jumping around on the spot to try and keep warm.

    If Djokovic carries on like this, he will take some stopping.

    Djokovic likes to feed off the fans. He loves that energy!

  12. Game and second set - Djokovic

    Djokovic 6-3 6-4 Nishikori

    There's the emotion from Novak Djokovic! He bellows and waves his arms after sealing the set. He just needs one more set to seal a place in a second successive Grand Slam semi-final.

  13. Post update

    *Djokovic 6-3 5-4 Nishikori

    A hum goes around Arthur Ashe Stadium. A roar of encouragement.

    Two set points...

  14. Post update

    *Djokovic 6-3 5-4 Nishikori

    Novak Djokovic, serving for a two-set lead...

    Big serve. 15-0.

    Nishikori goes wide. 30-0.

    Nishikori has to to fight and fight just for a point. He manages it. 30-15.

    Novak Djokovic looks totally in control. He has no doubts about what he is going to do.

  16. Post update

    *Djokovic 6-3 5-4 Nishikori

    Nishikori puffs his cheeks, lifts his shirt up onto his shoulders and takes a seat. He's forced Novak Djokovic to serve it out.

    Now Nishikori wraps himself in his towel, closes his eyes and devours one of those energy gels. Can it lift him?

  17. Post update

    Djokovic 6-3 5-3 Nishikori*

    Nishikori is dragging his feet along the baseline between points. He whacks his heel with his racquet after netting.

    You've got to feel for him.

    15-30.

  18. Post update

    Djokovic 6-3 5-3 Nishikori*

    The all-action Nishikori is looking pretty sweaty again. He's swinging from the hip, like he has to, but those shots are just missing now. He used an awful lot of energy at the start of this set. Can he keep going?

    Djokovic moves to within a game of a 2-0 lead.

  19. Post update

    *Djokovic 6-3 4-3 Nishikori

    Gasps from the crowd. Novak Djokovic made an error. Tonight that's remarkable.

    The Serb looks to be feeling like Superman right now. He's already wandering towards the service line before Nishikori has even hit his serve and then taking the ball on the rise.

    The return is powerful but just long. Nishikori stays in touch.

    Nishikori must wonder what else he can do? I feel a bit sorry for him. He is trying his heart out and at times is playing as well as he can play. Listen to that applause. They know he is trying.
