Karen Khachanov is into his first career Grand Slam singles semifinal after outlasting 23rd seed Australian Nick Kyrgios in five tense sets, 7-5, 4-6, 7-5, 6-7(3), 6-4 on Tuesday night at the US Open.

This is the fifth time in six years that a player seeded No. 20 or below is into the men’s singles semifinals of the US Open.

“I had some opportunities in the fourth set. He played an amazing tiebreak,” said Khachanov. “What can I do? I had to stay focused and try to win the next set. I’m really proud of myself. I was really focused from the beginning to the end, and I got the win.”

Next up for Khachanov is a final-four showdown with 5th seed Casper Ruud, who earlier on Tuesday dispatched 13th seed Matteo Berrettini of Italy, 6-1, 6-4, 7-6(4). Khachanov dropped his only career encounter with the Norwegian, a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 decision in the first round in Rome in 2020.
