Fifth seed Daniil Medvedev feared he would not be able to continue against Stan Wawrinka before reaching his first Grand Slam semi-final in the US Open.
Medvedev, 23, obtained painkillers and taping on his thigh at the first group of a 7-6 (8-6) 6-3 3-6 6-1 triumph on the Swiss on Arthur Ashe Stadium.
The Russian will face champion Roger Federer or Grigor Dimitrov for a place in Sunday’s final.
“For sure, I hope to be prepared for the semis,” Medvedev said.
“Before the game I had been feeling great. From the first place I believe I pulled off my quadriceps. I had a very major pain and believed I wasn’t going to keep the match.
“In the fourth group, I started believing the painkiller and began moving ”
Medvedev seized the early initiative by dividing Wawrinka from the opening match – but struggled after receiving heavy strapping during a timeout when.
Three-time Grand Slam winner Wawrinka, who reached the final eight years after winner Novak Djokovic retired injured from their game on Monday, capitalised for the Medvedev, only to level at 5-5 to shut out a first set tie-break with three points.
Together with his motion advancing, Medvedev serve in the fourth game to take the next group – although the momentum dissipates once again in the next as the Korean 23rd seed raced into a 3-0 lead and rescued 2 break-points to finally serve out the set.
But the Russian, booed in his win over German Dominik Koepfer after teasing the audience, rallied from the champion that was tiring 2016 and broke serve to seal his spot in the final four in Flushing Meadows.
After his 9,000 (#7,400) good for a visible obscenity and unsportsmanlike conduct in his third-round victory over Feliciano Lopez on Friday, Medvedev relished the boos that transpired when he arrived on court and during his own post-match interview.
“So many individuals support me, so a lot of don’t like me personally,” he told the crowd following his quarter-final win.
“I will just say, I strive to be myself guys. I must say, sorry guys, and thank you!”
Swiss great Federer is in Tuesday’s night session in action against Bulgarian Dimitrov.
