Here are the key matches to watch for:
Serena Williams-vs-Flavia Pennetta: match play at 7 P.M. (EST), Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Serena Williams has been close to perfect during this tournament, having not dropped a set yet in each of her 1st four matches, which explains why she is the lone top seed remaining.
She is also poised to win her 3rd US Open in a row and having won all 5 of their previous meetings this match should be no different.
Williams in straight sets: 6-3, 6-2.
Novak Djokovic-vs-Andy Murray: match play after 9 P.M. (EST), Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Djokovic and Murray were 2 of the odds-on favorites at the beginning of this tournament and are known for their epic battles, so this should be a riveting match.
Djokovic leads their head-to-head meetings 12-8, but 9 of those meetings were in the final round and Murray holds the edge there at 5-4, so this is a pretty even match-up.
Murray has had a rough season, but always plays his best against Djokovic, so this should be a close one.
Djokovic in 5 sets: 6-4, 6-7, 6-3, 6-7, 6-4.
Here are the highlights from day 9:
For the women,Carolne Wozniacki continued to dominate, defeating Sara Errani, 6-0, 6-1 and Ekaterina Makarova beat Eugenie Bouchard, 7-6, 6-4.
For the men Roger Federer beat Rtberto Bautista Agut in 3 sets 6-4, 6-3, 6-2.
