- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 6-4 - GAME, SET & MATCH! A lunging backhand winner across court from Djokovic sees him go 30-0 up before a netted forehand from the Swiss hands him three match points. The first goes begging with a netted forehand from Djokovic. But he wraps up the win at the second attempt with a big serve that Wawrinka can only net in return.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 5-4 - Wawrinka takes the first couple of points of the game before Djokovic clearly decides to serve out the match rather than battle back into this game. A forehand winner, that Djokovic doesn't bother to chase down, seals it for the Swiss player. He needs to break in the next game though if he is to keep this match alive. Djokovic will serve for a place in the final after the change of ends.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 5-3 - Djokovic lands a cross court forehand right on the sideline, challenged by Wawrinka but in vain, before the Serb lands an ace to seal the game - originally called out but challenged by Djokovic and shown to have caught the very outside of the line. Wawrinka will have to serve to stay in the match next.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 4-3 - Djokovic draws Wawrinka up to the net with another forehand drop shot before anticipating well and firing his forehand volley into the open court to level at 30-all.

The world number one potentially just two games away from a place in a fifth US Open final now.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 3-2 - BREAK! A couple of backhand errors from Wawrinka, followed by a forehand long and Djokovic has two break points. The first goes begging on a great serve from the Swiss player, straight down the T and returned into the net from Djokovic. The second is also wasted by the Serb as he puts a forehand wide across court but he gets a third chance and this time he does get the break when Wawrinka floats a forehand long of the baseline.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 2-2 - Djokovic races through a service hold to 15, the only dropped point coming off a double fault, to put all the pressure back on the Wawrinka serve once again.

Wawrinka also gets back to put up a defensive lob off Djokovic's lob but the Serb is there to put away the smash winner and deny the ninth seed on another game point. He earns himself another before the crowd get involved leading to a lengthy pause, welcomed by both players who encourage it!
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 1-1 40-40 - Another game point comes and goes for Wawrinka as does another when he sends a forehand long well inside the line before Djokovic earns himself yet another break point. It's back to a ninth deuce when a backhand goes long from Djokovic despite the Serb having down all the hard work. Wawrinka earns himself another game point with a backhand winner down the line but again can't take advantage. A whopping 16 and a half minutes on this game so far...
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 1-1 40-40 - Another break point goes begging for Djokovic as he nets a forehand, while a third is saved by Wawrinka with an incredible backhand winner down the line from way behind the baseline.

But he mis-hits a backhand into the net after Djokovic gets sensational length on a backhand recovery shot.

A double fault squanders the chance to hold for the Swiss, which Djokovic makes him pay for with a dipping backhand at the feet of Wawrinka, who nets his backhand volley. Break point Djokovic. Wawrinka saves it with a forehand winner...
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3 1-1 - A poor smash from Djokovic right back to Wawrinka allows the Swiss player to level at 30-all when the Serb's reactionary half-volley goes wide. But a forehand winner and an ace help Djokovic to hold without the loss of another point.

But a backhand return error hands Djokovic a set point which he takes full advantage of, firing down a fifth ace to push the match to a decisive fifth set.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 5-3 - Djokovic is left with a look of disbelief on his face when Wawrinka curls a backhand winner down the line and just onto the outside of the line on his way to a comfortable hold to force the Serb to serve out the set.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 5-2 - Wawrinka is able to push Djokovic to 30-all but he is frustrated by his inability to make a move and the Serb holds when Wawrinka slashes a single-handed backhand return wide down the line. Wawrinka will have to serve to stay in this fourth set.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 4-2 - A smash winner and an ace open the game for Wawrinka before he slaps consecutive forehand errors to allow Djokovic into the game. But another couple of big serves from the Swiss ninth seed and he has the hold the keeps the deficit down to just the one break.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 4-1 - Wawrinka has gone off court to receive a medical timeout for what looked, during the assessment, like a back problem.

- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 3-1 - A much better display of serving helps Wawrinka out to a 40-15 lead on serve. Djokovic denies his opponent on the first with a ridiculously brutal backhand return winner down the line, while the Swiss player squanders the second with a forehand into the net. A forehand just long from Djokovic and a backhand volley winner see Wawrinka hold from deuce though and get off the mark in this fourth set.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 3-0 - Wawrinka gets a racquet abuse warning when he bounces his racquet on the court with such force that he breaks the frame. And then he gets a point deduction for throwing the racquet a second time on the way back to the chair and breaking it over his knee when he gets to the chair. Djokovic just ignores the whole situation to post a comfortable service hold and consolidate the break. The momentum has completely shifted again in this match.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 2-0 - BREAK! Wawrinka just appears to run out of air as he chips up a backhand volley right into Djokovic's hitting zone, leaving an easy shoulder-height forehand for the Serb to bring up three break points. The ninth seed saves the first with a forehand winner and then also the second with a service winner. But an unbalanced double fault from Wawrinka hands Djokovic the break at the third attempt.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 3-6 1-0 - Wawrinka takes the first point of the set by whipping an angled forehand winner across court and he also forces Djokovic to recover from 30-15 down. But the Serb holds from there without the loss of further points to take the first game of this fourth set.

- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) 0-1 - A third double fault from Wawrinka hands Djokovic an early break in this third set. The ninth seed saves it with a much better serve that Djokovic can only return long off the forehand wing. And from there, Wawrinka goes on to hold. An important game, that for the Swiss player.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 7-6(4) - SET! The first set point goes begging when Djokovic nets a forehand of his own.

- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 6-6 - An inside out forehand approach shot across court goes for a winner to bring up two game points for Wawrinka but he only needs the one as he holds to 15 with an ace. This set will be decided by a tie-break.

- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 5-5 - Djokovic takes a slightly nasty tumble on the baseline but recovers to collect a ridiculous forehand off a drop shot from Wawrinka.

- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 2-4 - Djokovic gets called for a coaching violation by the umpire, no point deducted yet just a warning, but the Serb and his camp are not pleased by it. Wawrinka, meanwhile, just ignores everything and posts a hold to 15 to consolidate the break in this second set.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 2-3 - BREAK! Djokovic has won just nine per cent of points behind his second serve as Wawrinka whips a backhand passing shot winner down the line. An inside out forehand winner across court follows on the next point brings up another break point. The Serb saves it by stepping inside the baseline and finding a forehand winner across court. Wawrinka squanders a second break point with a forehand long but he does break on the third when Djokovic hits a forehand long.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 2-2 - A sliced cross court backhand followed by a backhand volley winner across court from Wawrinka is sublime but Djokovic dips a backhand over the net and right at the feet of Wawrinka to bring up a break point.

Eventually Wawrinka secures the hold when Djokovic fails to find the court with a backhand return.

- - DJOKOVIC 2-6 - SET! A first set point goes begging for Wawrinka when Djokovic wrong-foots him on the baseline with a cross court backhand. But the ninth seed secures the set at the second attempt with a blistering service winner down the centre of the court. What a set from Wawrinka.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-5 - BREAK! Another double fault from Djokovic quickly followed by a forehand winner Wawrinka, leave the ninth seed with three more break points. Sure enough, Wawrinka does break to love as Djokovic slaps down a fourth double fault. Wawrinka will serve for the opening set after the change of end.
- - DJOKOVIC 2-4 - BREAK! Another rattlin forehand winner across court from Wawrinka combined with a cross court forehand passing shot winner appear to be helping the ninth seed to a hold to 15 only for Djokovic to fight back and fashion a break back point with a timely challenge on the baseline. A forehand goes long from the Serb to squander it but he gets a second chance, after saving a game point, and this time he does break when Wawrinka puts a backhand long.
- - DJOKOVIC 1-4 - BREAK! Wow. A double fault from Djokovic, who seems to be really struggling so far today, hands Wawrinka another two break points.

But he does secure the double break at the second attempt with a blistering running forehand winner across court that lands right on the sideline.
- - DJOKOVIC 1-3 - A fantastic point from Wawrinka sees him level et 30-all on serve, the ninth seed slowly but surely grinding down Djokovic's defence and winning the point with a smash across court. He goes on to hold with a big serve that Djokovic cannot return in play off the forehand wing and that's the break consolidated by Wawrinka, in a solid enough manner.
- - DJOKOVIC 1-2 - BREAK! A regulation backhand down goes long from Djokovic to allow Wawrinka to level at deuce before another errant backhand, this time down the line, hands the Swiss player the first break point chance of the afternoon. Djokovic does well to save it, a smash and an inside out forehand eventually drawing the error from Wawrink but a double fault hands the Swiss a second chance and this time he does break when Djokovic's forehand catches the net and drifts long.
- - DJOKOVIC 1-1 - Wawrinka moves up the court to a short return from Djokovic to fire off a forehand winner for his first point of the game.

- - DJOKOVIC 1-0 - Djokovic races through a very impressive opening service hold to love - an ace, a service winner and a second ace sealing the game for the world number one.
- - The warm-up over and done with, umpire Enric Molina calls time. It will Novak Djokovic to get the clash underway by serving first after Wawrinka won the toss and opted to receive...
- - Their most recent meeting, however, came at this year's Australian Open, again in the fourth round. It was an absolute thriller with Wawrinka eventually losing a heartbreaker 1-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-7(5), 12-10 as Djokovic went on to win the tournament.
- - They met at last year's US Open as well, in the fourth round, when Wawrinka was the one forced to retire - while trailing 6-4, 6-1, 3-1. Djokovic, of course, went on to be beaten by Murray in that epic final.
- - These two have met each other 14 times before with Djokovic leading the head-to-head statistics by an overwhelming 12 wins to just two for Wawrinka. The Swiss number two's only wins came way back in 2006 at Umag when Djokovic retired in the first set breaker and then in Vienna in the same year.
- - On the way to reaching the last four, Djokovic has spent eight hours and 46 minutes on court while Wawrinka has spent 13 hours and 12 minutes on court.
- - Wawrinka, arguably, has had the tougher path to this stage. The Swiss opened with straight sets wins over Radek Stepanek and Ivo Karlovic before coming through a tough four setter (including two tie-break sets) against Marcos Baghdatis in the third round. An impressive four set win over fifth seed Tomas Berdych followed in the fourth round before his straight sets drubbing of defending champion Andy Murray in the quarters.
- - Djokovic has looked on imperious form throughout the tournament so far, beating Ricardas Berankis, Benjamin Becker, Joao Sousa and Marcel Granollers all in straight sets before dropping his first set of the tournament to Mikhail Youzhny in the quarter-finals.
- - Hello and welcome to LIVE coverage of the first of the men's semi-finals at the US Open in New York between world number one Novak Djokovic and ninth seed Stanislas Wawrinka.
