Rafael Nadal will be looking to extend his run in the 2013 US Open, when the World No 2 takes on France's Richard Gasquet in a men's singles semi-final clash. The match will be held at New York's Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Where to Watch Live
The match follows the first semi-final between Novak Djokovic and Stanislas Wawrinka, which is set to start at 5pm BST. Live coverage is available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. You can also catch all the scores and updates, in real time, from the tournament's official website.
Nadal enters this game after defeating compatriot Tommy Robredo in the quarter-final; he won the match in straight sets: 6-0, 6-2, 6-2. The Spaniard has dropped only one set in the 2013 US Open.
The 27-year-old has won the US Open only once, defeating Djokovic in 2010. A victory for Nadal against Gasquet and a win for the World No 1 in his semi-final would see them meet again on Monday.
Gasquet made it to the semi-final of the US Open after defeating World No 4 David Ferrer in a five-set thriller. He took an early lead in the first two sets before the Spaniard made a comeback to level the game. However, the 27-year-old Frenchman fought back to regain his form to defeat Ferrer 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3 to seal a berth against Nadal.
Nadal and Gasquet have met 10 times, with the World No 2 winning every time. The World No 8 has only ever taken three sets off the Spaniard.
