The world’s top-ranked player punctuated the victory Sunday with a winner, hit backward between his legs, to set up match point.
The top-seeded Federer won his 40th straight match at Flushing Meadows and will try to become the first player to win six straight titles at America’s Grand Slam since Bill Tilden in the 1920s.
Federer has now reached the final of 17 of the last 18 Grand Slam tournaments.
What Federer is doing is just incredible. He's clearly up there with Tiger Woods as athlete who dominate their sport.
