Frances Tiafoe – US Open Tennis 2022: Game schedule, how to watch on TV, and who’s left in the tournament? – GETTY IMAGES

There have been four US Open men’s first semifinals, the first time that has happened since the event’s first year in 1881, when it was known as the US Championship.

One of them is Francis Tiafoe, the first American to make it that far at a domestic grand slam since Andy Roddick in 2006. The No 22 seed faces Carlos Alcaraz in the evening semi-final after fifth seed Casper Rudd plays Karen Khachanov in the afternoon. Rudd is the only one to have reached this stage in a major before, losing to Rafael Nadal in this year’s French Open final.

The Norwegian will become the new world No. 1 if he wins and Alcaraz loses. But the 19-year-old Alcaraz would become the youngest No. 1 if he wins and Roode loses. He should gather plenty of energy after playing back-to-back five-set matches, including a quarterfinal win over Jannik Sinner that lasted 5 hours and 15 minutes and ended at 2:50 a.m., the latest finish in US Open history .
