Casper Ruud said learning how to come through five-set matches had been key to his success this year after the Norwegian reached the US Open semi-finals and moved a step closer to becoming world No 1.

Ruud, ranked seventh in the world, defeated 13th seed Matteo Berrettini 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on Tuesday to reach the last four of the US Open for the first time, three months after he reached the French Open final.

"During Paris, something clicked, and I feel like this year, I have sort of figured out in the better way how to play five sets and knowing that it's very different from playing best-of-three sets," said the 23-year-old, who missed the Australian Open due to injury.

"It often becomes much longer matches and a lot of back and forth. Also sometimes realising or knowing that you can sort of let one set go every once in a while to save some energy for the rest of the sets.

"So I think, yeah, I matured and learned how to play five sets better than I did last year."

Claycourt specialist Ruud was surprised to reach the semi-finals of the tournament, where he will face Karen Khachanov, but said playing the final of the Masters 1000 event in Miami helped him believe he can dig deep in hardcourt tournaments.

"Just the fact that maybe I prioritised or feel a little bit more comfortable on clay myself at this time of my career or during my career doesn't mean I don't like to play on hard court or that I cannot have good results here," he added.

Ruud will become world No 1 on Monday if wins a first major title but he can also take top spot if he reaches the final and Carlos Alcaraz does not.

When is the US Open? 

The tournament began at Flushing Meadows on Monday, August 29 and will finish on Sunday, September 11.

What time will it start? 

Play is likely to start on the outside courts at 4pm (BST) in the early rounds and at 5pm on the show courts. Expect the action to last long into the night, potentially beyond midnight depending on the course of each match. 

What British players are in action?

In total, seven Britons gained direct entry into the singles draws, although as the tournament reaches the midway point just one remains standing after British No 1 Cameron Norrie reached the fourth round for the first time but was beaten in straight sets by Russian Andrey Rublev on Monday.

Andy Murray reached the third round where he lost in four sets to the big-serving Italian Matteo Berrettini, while rising star Jack Draper's run ended when he retired injured in his third-round match with Karen Khachanov.

Kyle Edmund, playing singles at a grand slam for the first time in two years following three knee operations, was knocked out in straight sets by fifth seed Casper Ruud, while 20th seed Dan Evans lost to 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic over four sets in the third round.

In the women's singles, defending champion Emma Raducanu crashed out in straight sets to Alize Cornet in the first round, while Harriet Dart secured a superb upset win over 10th seed Daria Kasatkina before being dumped out in round two.
