Grigor Dimitrov becomes the lowest-ranked New York semi-finalist in 28 years

Roger Federer crashed out of the US Open after losing 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, 4-6, 2-6 to Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals on Wednesday.

While Roger Federer missed out on his 46th Grand Slam semi-final berth, Bulgaria’s 78th-ranked Grigor Dimitrov became the lowest-ranked New York semi-finalist in 28 years.

In the semi-finals on Friday, Grigor Dimitrov will take on Russia’s Daniil Medvedev, who advanced to his first Grand Slam semi-final by defeating three-time major winner Stan Wawrinka 7-6 (8/6), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.

Grigor Dimitrov reached his first US Open semi-final to match the deepest Slam runs of his career from Wimbledon in 2014 and the 2017 Australian Open. Not since 174th-ranked Jimmy Connors reached the 1991 quarter-finals had New York seen so lowly a figure on the ATP ratings list reach the last four.

Dimitrov is also the lowest-ranked Slam semi-finalist since 94th-rated Rainer Schuettler of Germany at Wimbledon in 2008.
