Novak Djokovic made it through to the US Open semi-finals for the 13th time in his career after extinguishing the challenge of American No 1 Taylor Fritz on Tuesday.

Djokovic passed Roger Federer by reaching a 47th Grand Slam semi-final and he also became the first man in ATP rankings history to record 250 career wins over top-10 players as he eased to a 6-1 6-4 6-4 victory against Fritz on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The 26-year-old Serbian also becomes the oldest semi-finalist at Flushing Meadows since Jimmy Connors (39) in 1991.

Djokovic, chasing a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title, will face another American in the semi-finals with Frances Tiafoe in action against fellow countryman Ben Shelton later on Tuesday.
