“Look, he’s one of the rare players that serves and volleys off the first serve,” Djokovic said of Lopez afterward. “It was anybody’s game in the fourth set. He had a couple of break points. I played pretty good, very consistent. Very glad to get through in four.

“Obviously, it was frustrating at times, but this was quarterfinals of a Grand Slam. This is what you expect.”

Defending US Open champion Marin Cilic beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in his own quarter final match, and will face Djokovic in the semi-final.
