    It's never happened before. But both are in the quarterfinals, one win away a piece from squaring off in the US Open for the first time. Looked up the Nadal vs Federer head to head record:

    Nadal - 23 wins (63%)
    Federer - 14 wins (38%)

    So clearly Nadal has the head to head edge. But then again, in 2017 it's been all Federer. He won when the 2 meet up at the Australian Open in January. And then 2 other times at lesser ATP tournaments. All 3 were on hard court surfaces, same as the US Open court.

    Looking at it another way still, Federer has won the US Open 5 times (2004-2008), but none sense. Nadal only took the crown twice, but in 2010 and 2013. So much more recently.

    Very interesting matchup between arguably the 2 best tennis players in the world, if it happens. My guess is it will. Any guess as to who takes it?

    Nadal's in.

    Would be shocked if Federer doesn't win tonight.

    Well... not going to happen this year. Got very close. But Juan Martin del Potro upset Federer. Should be a really good semi finals. But definitely disappointing to see this headline:
