"It's gonna be a special day for both of us: an opportunity for both of us to win a Grand Slam, to be a part of the history," he said of Nishikori, who is also in quest of his first major triumph.
"(There's definitely) gonna be huge emotions on the court. We played a couple times already here at the US Open. Both of those matches were extremely tough under very difficult conditions." ALSO READ Tomas Berdych involved in feud with lady chair umpire Ana Ivanovic looks gorgeous at Vogue party
