U.S. Open Tennis

Fourth seed Alexander Zverev extended his winning streak to 16 matches by easing past South African Lloyd Harris and into the semi-finals of the U.S. Open.

The victory leaves Zverev one win away from returning to a second consecutive U.S. Open final and another shot at a first career major title after losing to Dominic Thiem last year.

Zverev will face the winner of the match between top seed Djokovic and Italian Matteo Berrettini.

In women's championship, British teenager Emma Raducanu continued her fairytale run at the U.S. Open by reaching the semi-finals with a dominant straight-set win over Swiss 11th seed Belinda Bencic.

Raducanu, 18, again showed all of her quality and composure in a 6-3 6-4 win.

Victory means she will rise to the cusp of the world's top 50 and become the British women's number one.
