In a huge upset, Kei Nishikori topped Novak Djokovic, a finalist in this competition each of the past four years, in four sets to advance to the US Open final. The Japanese announcers were predictably hype when calling the final point of the match:

Monday's final will be the first Grand Slam final of the 24 year old's career, and will be the first time a 10th seed has competed for this title in 13 years.
