U.S. Open 2012 Tennis Scores: David Ferrer Comes Back To Advance

Fourth-seeded David Ferrer came back to take a thrilling five-set quarterfinal victory over eighth-seeded Janko Tipsarevic on Thursday at the 2012 U.S. Open. With the win, Ferrer advances to the semifinals.

It wasn't easy for Ferrer, as he had to battle back from a two-sets-to-one deficit, then had to come back from down 3-0 in the fifth to force a decisive tiebreak. He went on to win the only mini-break before serving out the match for a 6-3, 6-7(5) 2-6, 6-3, 7-6(4) victory. Ferrer now moves on to face the winner of Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin Del Potro.

Djokovic and Del Potro face off in a battle of former U.S. Open champions on Thursday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Mixed doubles crowned the first set of champions for the tournament. Ekaterina Makarova and Bruno Soares defeated Marcin Matkowski and Kveta Peschkee on Thursday to take home the title. The match went to a decisive super tiebreak, where Makarova and Soares prevailed, 12-10.
