U.S. Open 2012 Scores: David Ferrer Survives In Five Sets

Men's No. 4 seed David Ferrer advanced to his second career U.S. Open semifinal when he outlasted No. 8 Janko Tipsarevic in five sets on Thursday in Arthur Ashe Stadium. The match was one of the best of the tournament, as it was decided in a fifth-set tiebreak.

Ferrer fell down two sets to one before forcing the decisive set. He went down once again in the fifth set, 4-1, before battling back to force the tiebreak. Ferrer won the only mini-break of the tiebreak to go up 5-3 and was able to serve out for the match. He now advances to face the winner of Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin Del Potro.

The second-seeded Djokovic faces off against the 2009 U.S. Open champion Del Potro in the nightcap at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Thursday.

The first championship of the 2012 U.S. Open was handed out on Thursday afternoon. Ekaterina Makarova and Bruno Soares defeated Marcin Matkowski and Kveta Peschkee to earn the mixed doubles title. Matkowski and Peschkee won the first set, before Makarova and Soares cruised in the second to force a super tiebreak. Makarova and Soares won the super tiebreak, 12-10, to cap an improbable run.

The two winners signed up for the tournament just minutes before the deadline and were unseeded.
