  • Roger Federer staged a remarkable comeback after losing the first two sets against Gael Monfils and saving two match points to win 4-6 3-6 6-4 7-5 6-2 and reach the last four of the US Open.

    The 33-year-old Swiss, looking for his 18th Grand Slam title, will play Croatia's Marin Cilic in the semi-finals.

    Monfils, the 28-year-old Frenchman, came very close to what would have been the highpoint of his career.
