10 September, 2019, 14:47
Fifth seed Medvedev, appearing in the last four of a Grand Slam for the first time, continued his knack of winning the big points while arguably playing the less eye-catching tennis as he beat Bulgarian former world number three Dimitrov 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 6-3 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
In Sunday's final, Medvedev will face either 18-time major champion Rafael Nadal or Matteo Berrettini, a 23-year-old from Italy who is seeded 24th, who are now facing each other in the semifinals.
Before Nadal and Medvedev take center stage on Sunday the women will have their day on Saturday with 37-year-old Williams needing a win over 19-year-old sensation Andreescu to snatch a record equaling 24th career Grand Slam singles title.
The Spanish tennis star, 33, defeated Matteo Berrettini 7-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Friday night at the 2019 U.S. Open. "That's where I've been going step by step", he added. I do think I was kind of lucky to win it, " Medvedev said about Dimitrov. It's great that I have this experience playing him in the final of a Masters.
"Of course, I would love to be the one who achieves more grand slams, but I still sleep very well without that".
Dimitrov, who was long ago dubbed "Baby Fed" because of his similar one-handed backhand and all-court game to Federer, had needed almost 1½ years before he reached a semifinal at any tour-level event, much less a major.
His semi-final victory on Friday sends the 23-year-old through to his fourth straight final and stretches his win streak to 12 matches.
Tennis history was also made on Friday after the victories for Nadal and Medvedev.

Roger Federer, the No. 3 seed and owner of 20 Grand Slam titles, finished his five-set loss to 78th-ranked Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals, but was clearly compromised by a problem with his upper back. Nobody says, 'Nadal has a great serve.' But it bothers you.
The omens are good for the Spaniard as each of his three U.S. Open titles have come in years when he also won the French Open. His run in NY - highlighted by that five-set quarterfinal win over Federer - was a plucky reminder of how just how good he could be at his best.
