It was another day of breath-taking tennis on Day 9 at the US Open as we witnessed one of the biggest upsets of the tournament as Grigor Dimitrov came back from a set down to beat Roger Federer to enter the semis.

Earlier, America’s darling Serena Williams marched into the semis with a 6-1, 6-0 thrashing of Chinese Wang Qiang. While these big guns went about their business, they received some cheering and support from superstars from other fields.
